Grammys 2014: If it were My Choice

The nominations have recently came out for the 2014 Grammy Awards. I am not making predictions as far as who is going to win, but I wanted to make my personal picks based on what the nominations were, so that's what this is. You can look at this and know a bit about my musical tastes this year. Also, when the Grammys air on January 26, you can look back at this and see how happy I am at the results. This is not a comprehensive list of all the categories, just the ones I care about.
