We outline 11 artists who may be up for the Grammy when nominees are announced in December

The oft-nominated Maxwell has never snared a Grammy and he’s a long shot in this category, but “Night” received some of the best reviews of his career. We’ll see if his absence made Grammy voters’ hearts grow fonder.
