    Who will be the big winners in the end? According to the results of last few years of Grammy Awards, the people who have been nominated most always become the final losers, but things may change this year. Among the seven nominations of Kanye West, there are 5 nominations belong to Kanye West’s rapping style, which means higher rate for being awarded. It would not even be surprised for Kanye West to win all of these five awards. But, Kanye West might lose in competing with Adele’s Rolling in the Deep for the Song of the Year Award. The second big winner might emerge between Adele and Bruno Mars, mostly Adele. Of course, these are just our guessing. We need to wait for the result next year. Stay tuned for more information about 2012 54th Grammy Awards.
