This Sunday, the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards are held in a building filled with decorative napkins and pop-stars, and Spotify have decided to ruin things a few days out by broadcasting who they believe will be the big winners, based on their listening data, and possibly that dolphin who can predict Super Bowl finalists, too.
However, it doesn’t take too much data crunching to arrive at the predictions they did, with Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, and The Chainsmokers likely to be the big winners on the night.
In other shocking revelations, Trump’s Presidency has been rocky, global warming is real, and the Foo Fighters describe their new album as their most rockin’ to date.
