There are 82 Grammys categories, but these four are the most high profile coming at the end of the big show. My picks for who I think should/will win.

(Vote for your picks at the bottom of the article)

RECORD OF THE YEAR

Get Lucky, Daft Punk Featuring Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers

Radioactive, Imagine Dragons

Royals, Lorde

Locked Out Of Heaven, Bruno Mars

Blurred Lines, Robin Thicke Featuring T.I. & Pharrell

SHOULD WIN:

Royals, the most unique sounding record of the bunch - soulful electro-pop with intriguing lyrics and a minimalist beat - although the retro disco vibe of Get Lucky was also infectious.

WILL WIN:

Locked out of Heaven, the most mainstream release of 2013, which the Grammys tend to favour.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

The Blessed Unrest, Sara Bareilles

Random Access Memories, Daft Punk

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, Kendrick Lamar

The Heist, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Red, Taylor Swift

SHOULD WIN:

The Heist for independently bringing heart and soul to hip hop. Even bad boy Eminem liked it!

WILL WIN:

Swift previous status as Grammy darling makes Red a lock.

SONG OF THE YEAR (Given to the songwriters)

Just Give Me A Reason, Pink

Locked Out Of Heaven, Bruno Mars

Roar, Katy Perry

Royals, Lorde

Same Love, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Mary Lambert

SHOULD WIN:

Same Love for bringing attention to same sex relationships in a beautiful song.

WILL WIN:

Toughest one to call with Pink, Mars, and Perry in a three way tie but I give Perry’s female empowerment anthem a slight edge. Bengals fans won’t be cheering.

BEST NEW ARTIST

James Blake

Kendrick Lamar

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Kacey Musgraves

Ed Sheeran

SHOULD WIN:

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. It's hard to argue with success.

WILL WIN:

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Same as above.
