Today marks the 56th annual Grammy Awards. For the music professionals and enthusiasts, this is the award show for you! Originally called the Gramophone Award, the Grammy was created to recognize achievement in the music industry. This year, there are 81 categories being awarded along side live musical performances. I’ve chose a few categories to share my opinion on who I think will win (Bold) or who I want to win (Italic). I’ll be live tweeting during the awards show, as well. Follow along with our Twitter account, @TwistonPR!
