Spotify takes user data to predict Grammy Awards 2013 winners

Mumford & Son's 2012 folk album "Babel" is favored to take home the album of the year honor at this year's Grammys ceremony, at least according to Spotify users. The digital music service has compiled its listeners' streaming data from the last year to predict who will win in each of the major categories at the 55th annual Grammy Awards.

Aside from Mumford & Sons, Spotify projects Australian musician Gotye will soon snag two gramophones: one for record of the year and another for best pop duo/group performance, for his collaboration with Kimbra on the hit "Somebody That I Used to Know."

Additional Spotify predictions: The Lumineers will win best new artist [watch our interview with the band at left], Carly Rae Jepsen will pick up best pop solo performance for "Call Me Maybe," and Carrie Underwood is expected to win best country song for her single, "Blown Away."

Listeners can also weigh in with their own predictions on Spotify's Facebook page.

The 55th annual Grammy Awards will air Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
