Thanks to some stellar performances on the recent Grammy telecast, the 2014 Grammy Nominees album is expected to conquer the top spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

The compilation, which features hits by brand-new Grammy-winner Kacey Musgraves and nominees Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean , is projected to sell somewhere around 85,000 copies. If the predictions hold true, the album will be the first in the series to score the #1 slot on the tally.

The 2014 Grammy Nominees album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart last week, selling 59,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As of right now, the 2014 compilation is tied with last year’s Grammy nominees album as the highest-charting release of the series: the 2013 edition also grabbed the #2 spot on the list the week after the 2013 Grammy Awards. That album features Tim  McGraw 's nominated collaboration on "Highway Don't Care" with Keith Urban and Taylor Swift .

The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday.
