It's a big year for the ATRL Grammys: This annual tradition has reached its fifth anniversary on the forum! And with no hit albums by major pop girls released during the eligibility period, the competition is more wide open than ever. Who will join Taylor SwiftBeyoncéCarly Rae Jepsen and Rihanna as the star of the show?

 

Yes, 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 January.
