Grammy Predictions: Pop and Dance

Best Pop Vocal Album
Will Will/Should Win - Lady Gaga "The Fame/Monster"
Commentary: The album that should win Album of the Year may face competition from Perry and her nod in both categories, and unfortunately Bieber also has a shot, but I think they will go Gaga for Gaga.

Best Female Pop Vocal Performance
Will Win/Should Win - Lady Gaga "Bad Romance"
Commentary: Still shocked that it was snubbed for Record of the Year, but should win this category with ease.

Best Male Pop Vocal Performance
Will Win - Michael Jackson "This is It"
Should Win - Michael Buble "Haven't Met You Yet"
Commentary - Buble and Bruno Mars are the biggest spoilers, but I think the Grammys will take one last opportunity to reward the King of Pop.

Best Pop Performance by a Duo/Group w/Vocals
Will Win - Train "Hey Soul Sister (Live)"
Should Win - Sade "Babyfather"
Commentary - Sade's smooth vocals would be nice, but my guess is that Grammy favorites Train take home the prize.

Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals
Will Win - Elton John and Leon Russell "If It Wasn't For Bad"
Should Win - Lady Gaga and Beyonce "Telephone"
Commentary - Gaga should win another one, but my guess is that John and Russells legendary matchup will take the prize. Also look out for Imagine, simply because of the starpower.

Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album
Will Win/Should Win - Barbra Streisand "Love is the Answer"
Commentary - Babs is back, and is performing. My guess this is her welcome back gift.

Best Electronica/Dance Album
Will Win/Should Win - La Roux "La Roux"
Commentary: Their crossover hit Bulletproof should help them secure them over previous winners The Chemical Brothers.

Best Dance Recording 
Will Win - Lady Gaga "Dance in the Dark"
Should Win - Robyn "Dancing on My Own"
Commentary - I would love to see Robyn take home a Grammy for her Techno comeback, but my guess is that Queen Gaga sweeps. Also watch out for Rihanna.
