STAY TUNED RIGHT HERE FOR UPDATES WHENVER THE ACADEMY ANNOUNCES NEW NOMINEES. HERE ARE THE FIRST CATEGORIES ANNOUNCED THIS MORNING ON CBS EARLY SHOW

Actual Nominees for Record of the Year
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX – Fancy
Sia  – Chandelier
Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Darkchild Remix)
Taylor Swift – Shake It Off
Meghan Trainor – All About the Bass


My Predictions for RECORD OF THE YEAR:
Happy (live)
Chandelier
Drunk in Love
Shake it Off (Taylor Swift not on the GRAMMYs?  The Academy wouldn't dare...plus it was the only thing released from 1989 that was eligible this year)
Let it Go (this was a massive song and Frozen was the biggest album in the past year which some say may make it a viable Album of the Year contender -- I say they are going to give it noms in 2 out of the big 4 categories Song and Reocrd of the Year)

Other possibilities "All about that Bass," "Problems" (Ariana Grande, Iggy, Nikki), "Fancy" (Iggy), "The Monster" (Eminem/Rihanna), "Dark Horse" (Katy Perry/Juicy J) and "Say Something" (Gr8 Big World/Aguilera).
