DJ StoneRokk and DJ Graham Funke are certainly no slouches in the music industry and have become known as superstar party starters with a lengthy roster of A-list clients — Kid Rock, Rihanna, Jermaine Dupri, Danny Masterson, Lauren Conrad, and Audrina Patridge, to name only a few. The DJs have been spinning in clubs across the country for 15  years and certainly know what's hot when it comes to music.  The duo has gone from humble roots performing at house parties to lavish celeb soirees to a Presidential fundraiser for tax breaks.

With excitement building for 52nd Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday, the dynamite deejays to the stars share with OK! their winning picks for the biggest categories of music's biggest night.

RECORD OF THE YEAR

Poker Face - Lady Gaga

It would be refreshing to see a departure from pop music like Kings of

Leon take it, but the most influential track of 2009 comes courtesy of

Lady Gaga, hands down.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

I Am Sasha Fierce - Beyoncé

To avoid a Kanye West interruption, we suggest the Recording Academy

award the Grammy to Beyonce.

BEST NEW ARTIST

MGMT

MGMT was able to transcend genres in 2009, appealing to fans and

artists alike, despite the predetermined demographics, and conquered

all airwaves, clubs and festivals along the way.

BEST FEMALE POP VOCAL PERFORMANCE

"Halo" - Beyoncé

All offerings here seem introspective, but it's this track in which the

lyrical content and execution shine most for us.

BEST MALE POP VOCAL PERFORMANCE

"This Time" - John Legend

Wow. 80% of the nominees are soul singers; Statistically, the odds are

stacked against Jason Mraz. That in no way tarnishes his shot at a

win, but we feel that John Legend will take the Grammy so he has

something for "show & tell" at the White House.

BEST POP PERFORMANCE BY A GROUP

"The E.N.D." - Black Eyed Peas

There is not much to discuss.

BEST DANCE RECORDING

When Love Takes Over - David Guetta ft Kelly Rowland

Really, this is the only record that is true to genre. Granted, some

of the other nominees have had success here, but in 2009, they are but

visitors to the kingdom which is David Guetta.

BEST ELECTRONIC DANCE ALBUM

Party Rock - LMFAO

The singles from this record all mix nicely with singles from the

other nominated artists, as if LMFAO is the glue that holds it all

together. 2009 was a bummer year for a lot of people; LMFAO motivated

them to "party."

BEST ROCK SONG

"Use Somebody" - Kings of Leon

Though up against veterans that defined the very sound one might

associate with this band, this song is a sterling example of passing

the torch.

BEST RAP SOLO PERFORMANCE

"Day & Nite" - Kid Cudi

Even though we were sent this track in 2007, a remix by Crookers

helped this track make a splash in 2009, and it had legs throughout.

BEST RAP SONG

"Run This Town" - Jay Z ft Rihanna & Kanye West

This truly is a collaboration of massive proportions, and the tender

melody coupled with lyrics centered around domination should translate

into an award here.

BEST RAP ALBUM

R.O.O.T.S. - Flo Rida

Regardless of who we would prefer win this category, Flo Rida will

most likely walk away with the Grammy as the album had mass appeal; We

don't remember any other nominees performing on "Ellen".

BEST ALTERNATIVE MUSIC ALBUM

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix - Phoenix

The overall "sound" of this record, which they developed on their

prior release, has essentially defined the category for us. We are

actually bigger fans of their first two albums, though it's nice to

see them get their just desserts.

BEST R&B SONG

"Pretty Wings" - Maxwell

We feel that this will be the category in which the Recording Academy

voters award the artist that most of the ceremony viewers have never

heard of; And well-deserved, to boot.
