With the GRAMMYs set to take place less than a week from today, the discussion about who will win and who deserves to win is intensifying, and everybody has a prediction about what names will be called when the time comes. Album of the Year, often considered the most sought-after trophy in the music industry, is sometimes easy to predict, but that is not the case in 2018, and any one of the five nominees could end up being the chosen one.

So, who should win the biggest award in music? Will it be a pop singer (Lorde or Bruno Mars)? How about a hip-hop mega-star (Kendrick Lamar or Jay-Z)? Or perhaps it will go to someone who doesn't quite fit under either of those labels...or any others (Childish Gambino)? There's an argument to be made for all five nominees, and this year, it's difficult to claim that one record deserves the honor over all the others.
