Unlike last year, when everyone knew Adele was going to walk away with all the big awards, the 2013 Grammys could go in a number of different directions.

This year's top nominees are Kanye West, Jay-Z, Fun., Frank Ocean, Mumford & Sons, and Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, each of whom has six nominations.

We predict Fun. will walk away with two of the Big Three awards, taking Record and Song of the Year for their "We Are Young" single. Ocean will claim four awards, including Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Mumford & Sons also figure to pocket three trophies, while the Black Keys and Miguel will win two each.
