Ever since our interview with Hunter Hayes, we’ve been obsessed! His talent and charisma have convinced us that he WILL grab the Best New Artist award this year!
Best Pop Solo Performance
There’s no way Carly Rae Jepsen’s preposterously catchy “Call Me Maybe” isn’t nabbing a Grammy this Sunday. We think it’ll take home the title of Best Pop Solo Performance!
Best Country Solo Performance
This second nomination for Hunter has led to a second prediction he’ll win! The piano powerhouse “Wanted” is a shoe-in for the title of Best Country Solo Performance!
Best Country Group Performance
Let the games begin! Taylor Swift & The Civil Wars’ haunting tune, “Safe and Sound“ was perfect in The Hunger Games, and we think it’s perfect in the category of Best Country Group Performance, too!
Best Country Album
We promise this is the last award we think Hunter Hayes will win this Grammy season! His self-titled album is undeniably beautiful, and the fact Hunter played 30 instruments on it impresses us beyond belief!
Carly Rae Jepsen made a huge splash with her first single “Call Me Maybe.” Will the follow-up single, “This Kiss” strike the same chords with her fans?
The new song is available to download today on iTunes, and is the second single off of Carly Rae’s upcoming record, titled simply “Kiss.”
It might be tough to top the Billboard record-breaking song “Call Me Maybe,” but we think Carly Rae can do it, and we absolutely cannot wait to hear the rest of the album (especially her duet song with Justin Bieber!)
Five years ago, Carly Rae Jepsen finished third on Canadian Idol. Today, she’s one of the world’s biggest pop stars, and she has a few words of advice to aspiring stars who are considering auditioning for a talent show: “go for it!”
“I would encourage anyone who’s considering whether or not to take a chance at that, to jump and go for it,” Carly said in a recent interview with The Metro.
She believes it’s the exposure to the world she got on Canadian Idol that allowed her the fame she has now, and that it helped her get found by Justin Bieber!
“I owe Justin a lot,” Carly said. “He’s been such an amazing supporter.”
