Music is at the heart of everything we do here at Pandora – and we know it’s equally as important to each of you. In honor of this year’s GRAMMY Awards, we thought it would be fun to look at your listening patterns and try to predict who will win big at this year’s awards.

Historically, you are pretty good at predicting who will win, simply based on how you listen to music throughout the year. To come up with this year’s listener predictions, we looked back at the past few years of nominees and winners, how you engaged with those songs, and applied that to this year’s class.

Looking back on the year, the first time Sam Smith (your pick for Album of Year) settled in at number one was the week of July 24 with “Stay with Me” – a place he held until October 22, when he was dethroned by Meghan Trainor and “All About That Bass”. Sia also had a great run and Iggy Azalea took to the stage for our Pandora Presents event in Santa Monica in August. Hmmm, are we sensing a pattern?

What do you think of how the predictions played out?
