My 53rd Grammy Awards Nominations Predictions

The announcement of the 53rd Grammy Awards nominations will be out tomorrow, December 1 ,so I'm sharing my predictions on what I think could be nominated on some categories, I emphasized on some because there are a lot of categories so I just chose the categories that I like to cast my predictions with. My predictions are based on buzz on music forums such as Pulse Music Board and Gold Derby and I threw in some "darkhorse" predictions as well. Anyway, for those who didn't knew the Grammy people chose nominees from a list of submitted songs/artists/albums that are qualified because they are released/popular within the eligibility period. This year the eligibility period was from September 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will be held on February 13, 2011. Here are my predictions :)
