Grammy Predictions: Best Urban/Alternative Performance

Gold Derby’s music experts Darrin Dortch and David Schnelwar reveal who will win and who should win in the category of Best Urban/Alternative Performance. In the days to come, they will be predicting the rest of the top Grammy races.

Here are their takes on the other R&B categories: Best R&B Performance By A Duo or Group with Vocals, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.

BEST URBAN/ALTERNATIVE PERFORMANCE
“Little One,” Bilal
“F*ck You,” Cee Lo Green
“Orion,” Carolyn Malachi
“Tightrope,” Janelle Monae and Big Boi
“Still,” Eric Roberson

Darrin’s take: Due to his General Field nominations and the ubiquity of the song, Cee Lo Green is a lock to prevail here.

Will win: Cee Lo Green, “F*ck You”
Should win: Janelle Monae and Big Boi, “Tightrope”
Spoiler: Janelle Monae and Big Boi, “Tightrope”

David’s take: Cee Lo Green’s “F*ck You” is a lock to win in this category due to his nominations for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Other previous Record of the Year nominees who won in this category are Outkast‘s “Hey Ya” and Gnarls Barkley‘s “Crazy.” Cee Lo is a previous winner in this category with Gnarls Barkley. Bilal, Carolyn Malachi, Janelle Monae & Big Boi, and Eric Roberson are not likely to upset.

Will win: Cee Lo Green, “F*ck You”
Should win: Cee Lo Green, “F*ck You”
Spoiler: No one
