Jon Batiste is the most-nominated artist at Sunday’s ceremony, but who is favored to take home the night’s most coveted awards? Boardroom examines the odds.
The 64th Grammy Awards are overtaking the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night. The hype for event, delayed and relocated for a second year due to COVID-19, is heating up.
Betting odds are fluctuating fast, as all of the categories were expanded to 10 nominees at the last minute.
The biggest showdown, though, will be between Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish. The latter became just the second-ever artist to sweep the Big Four categories back in 2020. Now, Rodrigo is eyeing the same feat and boasts seven nominations overall.
