This Sunday is music’s biggest night - The 61st Grammy® Awards!

Being a long time voting member of the Academy plus a previous Grammy® Nominee I take the awards very seriously. Record of the Year is another tuff one this year. This recently expanded category includes a song form all genres. Big hits like ZedMaren Morris and Grey’s “The Middle” and Drake’s “Gods Plan”, Cardi BBad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It” and Post Malone and 21 Savag’s “Rockstar” are all nominated. Plus there are songs from film soundtracks like Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All The Stars” from Black Panther and Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” from A Star Is Born standing with social commentary tracks like Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” and Brandi Carlile's “The Joke”. Not an easy decision to make but for me there is one standout. Who would you vote for? Seriously, I want to know, hit me up at @HowardHKKessler on twitter with your thoughts.

From the performance list for the show, which reads like a who’s who of the music industry, to the surprising speeches, historic fashion and tributes to Dolly Parton and Diana Ross with “Diamond Diana” preforming - DAMN! I love Grammy night!
