Imagine Dragons have the slight edge overall, getting 2/1 odds for “Demons.” This is their third consecutive nomination in this category, following unsuccessful bids for “It’s Time” (2012) and “Radioactive” (2013). Will the third time be the charm?
Close behind is Lorde for her recent Grammy-winning Song of the Year, “Royals,” which gets 23/10 odds, but she has the support of the majority of our Editors – three out of four pick her to win – while our Users are betting she’ll be vanquished by Dragons.
Linkin Park ranks third with 11/2 odds for “Until It’s Gone,” but we’d be foolish to underestimate them. This is their seventh bid, which makes them the second most nominated artist in the category’s history. They’ve won three times, which also makes them the second most awarded. Aerosmith holds both records, with eight nominations and four wins.
Do you think Imagine Dragons and Lorde are really neck-and-neck for the win, or will Linkin Park tie Aerosmith’s record? Make your predictions below.
