    This is such an interesting category.

    Two artists benefited from a couple of rule changes (The Chainsmokers, Chance The Rapper).

    Two country starlets (Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini)

    Two critically acclaimed urban acts (Anderson .Paak, Chance The Rapper)

    The Chainsmokers produced three big hits, including one that was #1 for multiple weeks. After Meghan Trainor won last year, I am almost ready to predict a win for them.

    However, Chance The Rapper is one of the most nominated artist of the year, and has been campaigning rather hard (and shamefully).

    Even though Maren Morris may have more country support, I’m sure that Kelsea Ballerini has some supporters somewhere in that bloc, so a vote split is always possible.

    Anderson .Paak is odd. It’s always safe to count him out, and he’s close enough to Chance The Rapper’s genre to cause a vote-split or at least siphon some votes away from Chance The Rapper. I just don’t know what to think of his chances.

    I am hoping and predicting a Chance The Rapper win with The Chainsmokers as my close second pick, but I’m not confident in my prediction at all.

    Kelsea Ballerini is in last place. Anderson. Paak has a lot of critical acclaim as do Chance the Rapper. Urban/Hip-Hop acts rarely win this category. The Chainsmokers had an impressive year on the charts. However, The Chainsmokers feel like a “here today, gone tomorrow act.” That leaves Maren Morris. She scored multiple Country nominations. NARAS loves female singer-songwriters. She fits the mold of past Best New Artist winners. Morris prevails.

    SHOULD WIN: Chance the Rapper
    WILL WIN: Maren Morris

    It’s between Maren Morris and Chance the Rapper. I think Maren Morris will make the trip to the podium come February.

    Very glad to see Anderson.Paak among the nominees. My vote goes to him.

    Should win: Chance the Rapper, hands down.

    Will win: The Chainsmokers. Trainor won last year, and I think Maren and Chance will suffer from vote splitting (against Kelsea and Anderson .Paak)

     

    Also I really like that we have polls/threads for every category

    Why wouldn’t the country girl with multiple country nominations win this award against urban artists, the other country girl that didn’t get much support and soon to be has beens?

    Will win: Maren Morris
    Should win: Honestly, I don’t care.

    There is a god! Both Chance and Anderson got in! Woo!

    However, Maren Morris is the safe, predictable, choice. I would love an upset by Chance.

    WILL WIN: Macen Morris

    Hey! If you don’t mind my asking you, why do you spell her first name with a C in the middle of it when it should be an R instead?

    God bless you always!!!

    There’s this thing called a typo

    Alessia Cara was robbed.

    She was. Anyone wanna guess why?

    ^^^ I know that typos can happen, but I have seen that girl’s name be misspelled in other messages from the person who writes her name like that and so I wondered if they are under the impression that the girl’s name is Macen when its really Maren.

    God bless you and them always!!!
