In the past few years, I would look at the nominations and forget about it and would have like a few albums that I know, but this year I wanted to listen to all major categories and the few song nominations specifically in the pop music categories. So, with this year’s GRAMMYs coming up. I would like to share my predictions of who will win among the nominees for the following categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album.

For this project, we did a real-time tweet analysis of tweets during the Final Four game of the Ateneo Blue Eagles and the FEU Tamaraws last November 25, 2018.
