On Sunday, February 12th, the Recording Academy will hand out awards commonly known as The Grammys. But what if things went crazy and everyone who was supposed to win didn’t?

The Grammys this year will probably mostly feel like a Beyoncé versus Adele match up. But wouldn’t it be hilarious if the Academy decided to award somebody other than Adele and Beyoncé in every category? That probably won’t happen but we’ve gotten together a list of potential upsets in each category. And it’s safe to assume that Adele and Beyoncé are nowhere to be found on the lists.

Music is art and art is subjective. So how can we really say who is the “best” in a category? And who even defines the categories? I know, totally blowing your mind here. But it’s fun to dream and deconstruct our assumptions every once in a while. So when you’re watching The Grammys on Sunday, just imagine the shock and surprise if Justin Bieber beat Adele? Or Chance The Rapper beat Drake? Or even Ok Go beating Beyoncé? Wouldn’t that just make the night all the more exciting?

So here are a few upsets that would really rock the Grammys when they air on Sunday, February 12th on CBS.
