Tonight it will be the 56th annual Grammy Awards on CBS beginning at 8 pm. As always, I joke about who I'll be wearing. As I write this I have yet to consult with my dresser. Whatever is on top and comfy is what I'll pick. Most likely I'll have a sweatshirt of some type and either PJ pants or wind pants.

LL Cool J is once again hosting. Madonna is the latest to be added as a performer tonight along with the already advertised artists including Taylor Swift, Lorde, Robin Thicke (w/o Miley Cyrus this time) Jay Z with Beyonce, the two living Beatles and Katy Perry who hopefully will surpass her performance of "Unconditionally" during the American Music Awards back in November.

Here once again are my predictions in the major pop categories. (X)

There many other categories and awards to be presented but for the purposes of relevance to our listeners and format, I'm just giving you the major pop categories with predictions. Hopefully this time I'll do better and get more than two or three correct.
