The popular singer definitely deserves these nominations, as he has an amazing voice and unique singing skills. Beyonce also got a couple of nominations this year, while Eminem received three. Pharrell and Taylor Swift were also on the nominees list.
A series of spectacular tracks have been released this year, so it is yet to see who will win the awards . Sam Smith is definitely expected to get at least one award, having under consideration the success of his singles. However, anything can happen, so we can only wait until next year to find out who will be the winners.
