Who Do You Want to Win the Grammys?


Michael Giacomo ’25, staff writer

The 2023 Grammy nominations were released a couple of weeks ago. This article focuses on a couple of the main categories and who will win each. The singer of the song or album will list each song or album nomination.

Album of the Year

Nominees: Voyage-ABBA, 30-Adele, Un Verano Sin Ti-Bad Bunny, RENAISSANCE-Beyonce, Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe)-Mary J. Blige, In These Silent Days-Brandi Carlile, Music Of The Spheres-Coldplay, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers-Kendrick Lamar, Special– Lizzo, Harry’s House-Harry Styles

This year was perfect for albums. I enjoyed many albums this year, many of which were nominated for Album of the Year. However, the three that stand out to me are Voyage by ABBA, Special by Lizzo, and Harry’s House by Harry Styles. To me, these three albums are iconic for this year. However, the one I feel will win is Harry’s House. Harry’s House had many major hits, and Harry Styles is an icon in the music industry. In my opinion, Harry’s House has the best chance of winning the Album of the Year award.

Song of the Year

Nominees: “abcdefu”-GAYLE, “About D**n Time”-Lizzo, “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (The Short Film)”-Taylor Swift, “As It Was”-Harry Styles, “Bad Habit”-Steve Lacy, “BREAK MY SOUL”-Beyoncé, “Easy On Me”-Adele, “GOD DID”-DJ Khaled Featuring Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, John Legend & Fridayy, “The Heart Part 5”-Kendrick Lamar, “Just Like That”- Bonnie Raitt

This year, I believe almost all the songs have a fair chance of winning the song of the Year category. Each song influenced the industry differently. It is tough to pick a particular song, but “All Too Well (10-Minute Version)” stood out most. Not only is this song a part of Billboard’s list of the top best songs listened to in 2022, it also is a ten-minute song that millions of people listened to. For millions of people to love and listen to this ten-minute song is incredible. Therefore, I believe “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (The Short Film)” by Taylor Swift will win the song of the Year category.

Best Music Video

Nominees: “Easy On Me”-by Adele, “Yet To Come”-BTS, “Woman”-by Doja Cat, “The Heart Part 5”-by Kendrick Lamar, “As It Was”-by Harry Styles, “All Too Well: The Short Film”-Taylor Swift

Undeniably this year, one music video stands out to me. “All Too Well: The Short Film” is one of this year’s most iconic music videos. When watching this music video, I feel like I am watching more of a movie than a music video, hence the name “All Too Well: The Short Film”. The video was well produced and had great actors, and I enjoyed watching all ten minutes of it. I believe “All Too Well: The Short Film” by Taylor Swift was the most influential music video this year, which leads me to think it will win the Best Music Video award.

There you have it. Three of the major categories for the Grammys and who I believe will win. Tune in to the Grammys on February 5, 2023. For more information, check out https://www.grammy.com/news/2023-grammy-nominations-complete-winners-nominees-list.
