    Sorry for the double threads. The board was slow and I hit submit twice. I can’t delete the other thread, so we’re using this one.

    I’m going with Adele here. She is to Pop Solo Performance what Anita Baker and Toni Braxton were to Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in the ’80s and ’90s.

    “Hold Up” is an interesting track, but I can’t see it winning here against bigger hits. Beyoncé will win elsewhere.

    Justin Bieber has a strong entry here, but the amount of (female) talent he’s up against is too much. His nomination is his award.

    People who are tired of Adele and fans of Kelly Clarkson are hoping for an upset on Kelly’s behalf, but “Piece By Piece” came and went. I just don’t see an upset against the mighty “Hello.”

    “Dangerous Woman” is a good performance, but pretty lightweight in terms of ubiquity. It won’t win.

    Adele for the win!

    We can immediately eliminate Ariana Grande. Kelly Clarkson has no chance. Justin Bieber won’t factor. Beyoncé will win elsewhere. This is another easy win for Adele.

    ShOULD WIN: Adele, “Hello”
    WILL WIN: Adele, “Hello”

    Adele, obviously, but I think it’s interesting that Kelly showed up here (I know she doesn’t have a chance). Kelly has received nominations, even if regulated to the pop field, consistently throughout her career. I think it’s more impressive when you consider that pop nominations are typically for artists at their commercial breakthroughs or peaks, which she is clearly past at this point. It makes me wonder if she some day puts out an album with a lot of acclaim with decent commercial success if she has a shot at winning big in the GF. I think it would have to be an acclaimed album that also crosses genres–something country or R&B influenced.

    I wouldn’t count out Clarkson. She could certainly upset. With that being said, I’m giving it to Adele.

    Adele’s got the edge. She beat Kelly a few years ago for a song that was a smaller hit and a live version.

    The Grammys like minimal production for wins in pop categories. For example: Say Something, Someone Like You,Royals , 21, In the Lonely Hour over flashier sounding songs. Piece by Piece (Idol Version) is basically acoustic and a raw vocal… an upset is not out of the question IMO.

    “Hello” is so iconic. She won the GRAMMY as soon as the track dropped. bloop.

    I’m surprised Timberlake wasn’t nominated. I still hate these categories as men vs. women.

    It’s hard because I don’t think Adele is bad winner for Hello, but Kelly deserves this much more and her song is much better.

    Get real! “Hello” shits all over “Piece By Piece.”
