Grammy results



As you may know, I tried to predict the winners of all 110 categories of the Grammy Awards. Well, I didn't do so bad. If I had gone with my first instincts, my number would actually be 12 higher.

However, when you go by the ones I predicted, I got 49 right. (That 61 would have been more than half.) Personally, I'm kind of shocked that I did so well in the categories I'm not as familiar with, such as Latin, R&B and World Music.
