Like most awards shows, the 2015 Grammy Awards will be a long night, with artists competing in 83 different categories! To keep this playlist succinct, we focused on the ten most competitive categories and featured one standout track from each to get you pumped for the big show—and psyched for your next workout. It's an eclectic gym mix that recaps some of the year's biggest hits and introduces stars of a few genres you might not otherwise be familiar with.

Kick things off with a slow but energetic track form the wildly popular Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX, and wind down with a sunny number from Kenny Chesney. Everything in the middle is 120 beats per minute (BPM) and up—with appearances from household names like Pharrell, rockers like The Black Keys, and new faces like Mr. Probz. All in all, the list below should give you plenty of reasons to move while you decide who you want to root for on the big night.
