Well, here's a bit of weird news. While the GRAMMYs don’t happen until February 10th, one Twitter account yesterday claimed the winners were briefly leaked on the GRAMMYs own website. The Twitter feed, @everyday4you, was first to report of the leak, claiming news of the winners came from Russia - the Twitter handle even claims to be positioned in Russia. They also posted video they claimed shows the winners revealed on the site...

SO, who is allegedly going to take home the trophies in two weeks?

Within hours of the "leak" hitting, the Recording Academy insisted the report was bogus.  "There is no legitimacy to this," a Recording Academy spokesperson tells Billboard. "Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the Grammy Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by [accounting firm] Deloitte in sealed envelopes."
