Grammy Experts: ‘Royals’ by Lorde will win Record of the Year

Our Grammy Experts are unanimous in their predictions as to what will win Record of the Year at Sunday’s Grammys: “Royals” by Kiwi newcomer Lorde. That solid support gives this track leading odds of 3/10. 

However, our Experts differ over what record is in second place. 

Four of them — Phil Gallo (Billboard), Edna Gunderson (USA Today), Lyndsey Parker (Yahoo! Music) and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) — have “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk and featuring Pharrell Williams. That gives it odds of 5 to 1. 

Glenn Gamboa (Newsday) has Robin Thicke‘s smash hit “Blurred Lines” in the runner-up slot; with its placement elsewhere by other Experts, that translates into odds of 33 to 1. 

And Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby) opted for “Locked Out of Heaven” by Bruno Mars which comes in at odds of 50 to 1. 

Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons rounds out the race at 100 to 1.
