The Grammys – How I would have awarded them

So, I’m taking a look at the Grammys, and I don’t agree. So I thought I would put how I would have awarded them. I took the nominees listed on www.grammy.com/nominees and decided how I would have done it. Brackets are who actually won. If there is no result as of the time I loaded the page, I will comment the result in later.

As I don’t really know about Jazz or Gospel music, or the World genres, so I have not put them in here.
