“Grammy predix: Cobra Starship, Keri Hilson and Zac Brown Band will be nominated for best new artist”
Now that the Grammy eligibility date, Aug. 31, has passed, it’s time to predict the nominees to be announced in November. Our Grammy prophets David “Guru” Schnelwar and Darrin “DoubleD” Dortch agree on three of the five nominees for best new artist: Cobra Starship, Keri Hilson and Zac Brown Band.
The best new artist award has been won in the past by such notable stars as Carrie Underwood, Amy Winehouse, Mariah Carey and the Beatles, but it’s also been considered a curse on careers. Other champs include such forgotten artists as Marc Cohn, Paula Cole and Starland Vocal Band and the disgraced and defrocked Milli Vanilli.
Check out DoubleD’s and Guru’s Grammy predix for best album and best record of the year.
BEST NEW ARTIST – Guru’s predictions – (Front-runners):
Keri Hilson (if eligible)
Zac Brown Band
…Demi Lovato recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. She could be a seat filler for the Jonas Brothers.
This list consists of artists who received 2009 MTV Video Music Awards nominations, “You Oughta Know” artists on VH1 or in their video rotation, musical guests on “Saturday Night Live” or the critically acclaimed. Anyone eligible is possible…
