And we're back! It's time once again to reward the best music of the past year, and to compare our collective tastes with those of the world's premier music awards show. Using the same categories, procedures and timeline as its namesake, the ATRL Grammys provides an opportunity for members to get in on the Grammy fun before the ceremony in February.

 

Last year saw perhaps our most diverse set of winners yet. Lorde took home the top prize, SZA was the night's biggest honoree and Kendrick Lamar became the first rapper to be awarded Song of the Year. Who will join past champions like Taylor Swift, BeyoncéCarly Rae Jepsen and Rihanna this time? Is a new pop girl set be crowned or is there a spoiler waiting in the wings?

Thanks! Also, do we use the same Grammy category placements or can we just choose whatever category the song/artist fits in? Sorry for all the questions

We try to keep it consistent, but we've differed on some things in the past. Is there a particular song you'd like to clarify the genre for?
