After watching the recent Grammy and BRIT Awards I have felt inspired and obliged to do my own set of musical awards based on the year of 2016, celebrating the best and worst music had to offer in those hectic 12 months. I have the list of nominees here on this post for you to see and the winners will be announced next week. Of course this is only a bit of fun and there aren’t actual awards to win but I just thought this would be a decent idea to get people involved and show you how I think 2016 unfolded. Be sure to let me know who you think deserved to be nominated and who your predictions are to win the big prizes.
