Kings of Leon, Black Eyed Peas and others vie in major categories like record of the year, album of the year and new artist
The 52nd annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast this Sunday (Jan. 29), and it's the ladies that are leading many of the major categories. Beyonce and Taylor Swift had ten and 8 nominations each, but Lady GaGa -- a critical and commercial favorite -- may nab all the statues in her five. Jay-Z, Maxwell, Kings of Leon, Black Eyed Peas and others are all trying to make their showing as well.
HitFix critic Melinda Newman picks through each of the major categories and predicts her winners. Will Swift take home more than numbers leader Beyonce? Will Phoenix now re-define what is alternative? Click on through, and be sure to tune in to HitFix on Sunday for our live-blog of the event, photo galleries and more.
