      I thought this year was going to be a hot mess with the combination of no host, categories being cut from the live show, and only having two of the five song nominations being performed, but they gone and folded like a bad poker hand so now it's just no host. So instead of being a trainwreck it'll probably just be a boring year again.

      Are those shoulds or wills?

      Which put me at 12/24 or one my worst years ever for predictions. Some of those were because of welcome upsets. Likely more were because of some truly baffling and bad ones.
