The 56th Annual Grammy Awards is just days away here in sunny LA and the anticipation for big performances and the big winners is growing with each passing day. Performances by Jay Z, Beyonce and Macklemore has already been confirmed, but now Spotify is once again getting into the mix by predicting this year's Grammy winners!  In 2013, Spotify accurately projected that Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” would win the gilded gramophone for Record of the Year and that Mumford & Sons would take home the Album of the Year prize for “Babel.”  Spotify’s users have once again spoken and their streams have been tallied. The digital music service analyzed data on its top song and album streams to predict which nominees will win big at this Sunday’s highly anticipated GRAMMY Awards. Key predictions include:
