Predicting The 2015 Grammy Award Winners With Port Chester Rocker Anthony Valbiro

When we last heard from Port Chester’s Anthony Valbiro of Ten Second Songs, he’d just gone viral with a YouTube video singing Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” in the styles of artists like Nirvana, John Mayer, and The Doors. Since then, the musical chameleon has amassed a few more million views on his videos, applying his musical mimicry to songs like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in styles ranging from Sinatra to the Misfits to *NSYNC. Since he obviously knows so much about the musical landscape, we wanted to know his picks for this year’s Grammy Awards, airing February 8 on CBS.

Winner: “My vote goes to ‘Stay With Me’ because I feel this song has the potential to stand the test of time, but it will more than likely go to Taylor Swift.”
