Grammy Predictions: Rock, Pop, & Dance

Best Rock Solo Performance

Should Win: Neil Young "Fork in the Road
Will Win: Bruce Springsteen "Working On a Dream"
Commentary: At least once a year Bruce wins a Rock Grammy.

Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals

Should Win/Will Win: Kings of Leon "Use Somebody"
Commentary: I'm hoping their Song and Record of the Year nominations means they can beat out the less deserving, but other Grammy-esque nominations.

Best Rock Song

Should Win/Will Win: Kings of Leon "Use Somebody"
Commentary: Because if they don't its a travesty.

Best Rock Album

Should Win: Green Day "21st Century Breakdown"
Will Win: Dave Matthews Band "Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King"
Commentary: Well Since DMB beat out U2 and Green Day for the Album of the Year spots, I say that it has a lot of support.

Best Dance Recording

Should Win/Will Win: Lady Gaga "Poker Face"
Commentary: With a lot of general category nominations, Gaga should easily sweep the Dance awards. Watch out though for Madonna and BEP

Best Electronica/Dance Album

Should Win/Will Win: Lady Gaga "The Fame"
Commentary: Duh?

Best Female Pop Vocal Performance

Should Win: P!nk "Sober"
Will Win: Taylor Swift "You Belong With Me"
Commentary: Since Beyonce really isnt a Pop vocalist, and P!nk is underappreciated, the whiny off-key Swift wins again.

Best Male Pop Vocal Performance

Should Win: Maxwell "Love You"
Will Win: Stevie Wonder "All About the Love Again"
Commentary: While most of these aren't really Pop acts, I think that Stevie has the best shot, simply because he is well...himself.

Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group w/Vocals

Should Win: MGMT "Kids"
Will Win: Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling"
Commentary: They have won this category before for much worse work, I say its a consolation prize if they don't win Record of the Year.

Best Pop Collaboration w/Vocals

Should Win: Ciara & Justin Timberlake "Love Sex Magic"
Will Win: Willie Nelson & Norah Jones "Baby It's Cold Outside"
Commentary: They tend to awards more seasoned pros in this category, but it is really up in the air in my opinion.

Best Pop Vocal Album

Should Win: Kelly Clarkson "All I Wanted"
Will Win: Black Eyed Peas "The E.N.D."
Commentary: If there is a God the Black Eyed Peas will not win this award, considering there wasn't really anything Pop or Vocal about it.
