The 53rd annual Grammy Awards Nominees

grammy awards

This year, a new generation of pop and crossover stars are expected   to take over the Grammys, according to  Maxim magazine Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy.

Lady Gaga is nominated for six Grammy awards. Bruno Mars is nominated for seven and Eminem is nominated for ten. So, who do you think is the big winner going to be?

“The big winner is a new generation of pop stars typified by Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga; they’re in their early to mid 20’s, or even younger if you’re (counting) Justin Bieber. This is a generational moment where these people are going to take the stage,” Levy says. “This is the first Grammys I can remember in a long time where every nomination in a major category is from an artist or a record I actually want to hear.”

Comed to thin of it, It seems like this the   year of the crossover stars, increasingly, artists’ music is surpassing  across different genres. An example of this is country star Miranda Lambert, who is nominated for three Grammys. She will also take the Grammy stage this Sunday.

The iconic Barbara Streisand is also nominated this year, making it her a total 41 nominations. She will also be honored.
“It’s about everything for her this year. You know, she’s back in the movies. She has a nomination for her new album,” Levy adds. “Here’s the interesting thing about Barbra. Her last Grammy, 24 years ago. At the time she said 24 is my lucky number. Maybe I’ll see you in 24 years. It’s 24 years later. Spooky. I think she controls everything,” Levy jokes.
