Nominations for the 60th annual GRAMMY Awards are set to be revealed tomorrow (November 28), and for the biggest and most promising artists in the music industry, it's set to be a thrilling morning. Best New Artist is the only award that a musician can be nominated for just once, so those who hear their name called tomorrow are surely going to be doing everything they can to stand out from the crowd over the next few weeks.

Coming up are our five predictions for the musicians that will be nominated for one of the most exciting awards in music. Check them out before the nominations are announced tomorrow!

1 / 5

Cardi B

Cardi B popped into the mainstream this year seemingly out of nowhere when her single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” rocketed to the top of the charts. The track ended up spending three weeks at No. 1. While the rapper doesn't have many other tunes that the mainstream audience know (and she hasn’t yet released a debut album yet), she might be too buzzy to ignore this time around.

2 / 5


Khalid, who blends R&B and pop in ways that are inventive and easy to love, already seems like he might be a frontrunner for the prize. His debut album American Teen was surprisingly successful, and his own singles “Young Dumb & Broke” and “Location” were both slow climbers. He’s got a lot of promise, and that’s what Grammy voters love to see.

3 / 5


One of the most exciting women in music, SZA isn’t exactly new—she’s been a critical favorite for a few years now—but 2017 saw her finally drop her debut album CTRL and score a handful of hits. So now is definitely the time for her to be nominated!

4 / 5

Julia Michaels

The singer-songwriter got her start penning hits for some of the biggest names in the business, such as  Justin BieberDemi LovatoFifth HarmonySelena Gomez and dozens of others. But this year she finally went out on her own, and things are going really well. Her single “Issues” is one of the biggest tunes of 2017 and her EP Nervous System was well-received.

5 / 5

Post Malone

Post Malone has seen his profile rise at a steady pace over the past two years, but 2017 was very, very good to him—Grammy voters won’t be able to ignore it. His debut album Stoney was released in time to be nominated. With his new single “Rockstar” ruling the charts for over a month just as they’re choosing nominees, he’s sure to receive some love.

NEW YORK - DECEMBER 14: Zendaya, Hugh Jackman, James Corden, and Zac Efron perform in Crosswalk The Musical in New York City

Dec. 15: ‘The Greatest Showman’ Take Over NYC

Zendaya, Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman drop by New York City to take part in James Corden’s Crosswalk the Musical series, and it went as hilariously chaotic as you think. The cast of the upcoming film ‘The Greatest Showman’ perform various tunes from Broadway classics like ‘Guys and Dolls,’ ‘On the Town,’ and ‘Fame’ in the middle of the busy streets of NYC. The three actors even performed a number from their new movie, and despite the traffic and honking cars we think they did pretty well!
