Grammy Picks: Album of the Year

The 2013 Grammy Awards are on TV tonight, to be broadcast on CBS3 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8.

Some are predicting a Frank Ocean runaway, but I don't see it way. The R&B innovator deserves a near clean sweep, but my hunch is that Grammy voters are too conservative to give him one. We'll see, and we'll also see if Chris Brown has cleaned himself up nicely after crashing his Porsche into a wall yesterday.

My preview and predictions are in the Sunday Inquirer and here. Below, videos from the five nominees for album of the year: Ocean's Channel Orange, The Black Keys' El Camino, fun.'s Some Nights; Mumford & Sons' Babel and Jack White's Blunderbuss. Channel Orange is my should win, and Babel my will win.
