2022 Grammy Predictions: Best New Artist

Who will receive the Grammy Award for Best New Artist? Unlike other Grammy Awards across various genres, projects and performances, people can only earn Best New Artist once in their entire career. Typically, the prestigious award predicts the next big act, but sometimes, A-Listers have also gotten the accolade if their fame happened to rise within the first year of their debut studio releases. Teenage breakout stars Olivia Rodrigo and The Kid LAROI are both frontrunners, but the Recording Academy is known for favoritism, politics, and controversial surprises, so who knows what will actually happen!

Vote below for your favorite new artists from 2021 (and late 2020) that you believe deserve a Grammy for Best New Artist, and be sure to vote based on the quality and artistry of their music rather than simply their popularity or number of streams.
