The 54th Grammys, coming up

The biggest music ceremony of the year is coming up. I'm guessing Adele and Bon Iver will sweep the awards, on February 12th.

*21, Adele; Wasting Light, Foo Fighters; Born This Way, Lady Gaga; Doo-Wops & Hooligans, Bruno Mars; Loud, Rihanna

(I'm rooting for Bruno Mars and Foo Fighters, who I think have two of the best albums of the year. But I think it will be between Adele and Lady Gaga. As long as it isn't Rihanna.../Estou a torcer por Bruno Mars e Foo Fighters, que têm dois grandes álbuns, mas acho que será entre Adele e Lady Gaga. Desde que não seja a Rihannna...)
