THE GRAMMY AWARDS ARE UPON US once again (CBS, Wed., March 1, 8 p.m. ET). That means it's time for my uncanny forecasts of the winners in the four major categories.

SONG OF THE YEAR: Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," from The Lion King soundtrack, is a lock. It has pure Grammy pedigree, a sappy-tune with ties to a hit film. Simba rules!

RECORD OF THE YEAR: Boyz II Men deserve to win, but merit rarely figures into the Grammys. After jilting Bruce Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia" as Song of the Year, the Academy pays him back by giving him the nod here.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR: Voters go with the one record none of them has heard: The 3 Tenors in Concert 1994. Hey, Pavarotti & Co. Must be classy.

BEST NEW ARTIST: Process of elimination. Ace of Base? Too foreign. Green Day? Too rude. Counting Crows? Too flighty. Crash Test Dummies? Who? Winner: Sheryl Crow.
