3rd Annual KUKO’s Choice Awards

Just for fun, the annual KuKo’s Choice Awards is my own version of the GRAMMYs. How would I voted if I were a member of the Academy.

This year in order to avoid confusion with genres. The nominees will be based on the known submitted entries to the 58th GRAMMYs (which are also limited to what I’ve listened).

The categories are: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Music Video and the combined Album of the Year in the fields pop, rock, urban (includes Best Rap, R&B, Urban Contemporary album categories), American Roots (American roots, Country); dance/electronic, and alternative music. The winners of these six categories will compete for the ‘Album of the Year’ award, voted by you, the readers.

The winners will be revealed on Sunday, November 21 and a poll for the six ‘Album of the Year’ nominees will start right away until New Year’s Eve (EST)
