Best New Artist: Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean was making hits behind the scenes as a ghostwriter for John Legend, Brandy and Justin Bieber before he joined hip-hop hooligan troupe Odd Future in 2009 and subsequently released his critically acclaimed debut studio album, Channel Orange, in July 2012. Shortly before Channel Orange was released, Ocean (who will be performing at the Grammys) admitted that his first love was a man and received surprising support from the hip-hop community, which many considered a musical milestone. His chill-inducing falsetto and butter-smooth R&B ballads even earned him a spot on Watch the Throne, the collaborative rap album from Jay-Z and Kanye West. While all of the Best New Artist nominees (including fun., Alabama Shakes and The Lumineers) had tremendous years and country singer Hunter Hayes fills the requisite “Who?!” nod (a historical favorite for taking this Grammy home), Ocean’s big reveal, both musically and sexually, makes this win almost undeniable for him.
