I predict it will be a big year for 17-year-old Australian newcomer Lorde. With a unique style and a lyrical content that belies her youth, I expect big things from her, not just in this year’s Grammys but for many years to come.

Here’s some of the major categories:

RECORD OF THE YEAR
“Get Lucky” (Daft Punk & Pharrell Williams); “Radioactive” (Imagine Dragons); “Royals” Lorde; “Locked Out of Heaven” (Bruno Mars); “Blurred Lines” (Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell)

ALBUM OF THE YEAR
“The Blessed Unrest” (Sara Bareilles); “Random Access Memories” (Daft Punk); “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City” (Kendrick Lamar); “The Heist” (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis); “Red” (Taylor Swift)

SONG OF THE YEAR
*This award goes to the songwriters, but I am listing the artist for purposes of familiarity
“Just Give Me A Reason” (Pink featuring Nate Ruess); “Locked Out of Heaven” (Bruno Mars); “Roar” (Katy Perry); “Royals” (Lorde); “Same Love” (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis)

BEST NEW ARTIST
James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; Kacey Musgraves; Ed Sheeran
