Frank’s GRAMMY® Predictions

The 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place on Feb. 12, 2017 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast live on CBS! We’re excited to see so many wonderful artists nominated and are sharing our predictions for who will take home the golden gramophone for their category!

James Corden, the hilarious host of “The Late Late Show” and one of our favorite segments, Carpool Karoke, will host the GRAMMY Awards this year. He inherits the mic from 2012-2016 host LL Cool J. John Legend, Metallica, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban will perform, according to Billboard, with more to be announced.
