    I don’t know what idiot keeps nominating Ariana Grande but it has to stop.

    Because, unlike her teen contemporaries, she can actually sing

    Ariana can sing, yes, she can, but her songs suck.

    I’m predicting an upset by Kelly Clarkson here, but I want Adele to win, “Hello” is truly iconic.

    Kelly Clarkson is the only one in this category who has a chance at beating Adele, although I doubt it happens.

    Adele will rightfully take her third win in this category for “Hello.”

    this category is usually won by a song that charted on many genre Billboard charts, so it’s Adele.

    The live version of “Happy” didn’t chart anywhere and it still won lol. (Granted, due to a submission technicality, but still).

    Also this category is still pretty young. I doubt Kelly wins but I wouldn’t say she doesn’t have a shot, same way she surprisingly won Pop Vocal Album a few years back.

    “Happy” spent 10 weeks at #1. I doubt people care that it was a live recording. Essentially, the voters voted for “Happy”(Live) because the original was so huge and well-known.

    Of course, Adele is gonna win this. No doubt about that. She break the charts and Hello is a masterpiece and truly iconic.

    Maybe Kelly can somehow upset Adele here.
    Maybe voters will see it as not only an award for Kelly but a nod to the end of Idol.

    Get real! Voters don’t care about American Idol. Kelly Clarkson’s reward is her nomination here.

    Unlike previous nominees such as “Happy (live)”, “All of Me (live)”, “Stay With Me (Dark Child Version)”, and “Set Fire to the Rain (Royal Albert Hall)”, it is important to note that “Piece by Piece (live)” is technically, the first song<i> </i>to be nominated in this category that was actually the hit version itself, not the original version, this could give kelly some momentum. Yes, “Happy (live)” and “Set Fire to the Rain (Royal Albert Hall)” won, but we all know they based it off of the original version, not the live performance itself.

    “Piece By Piece” wasn’t really that big after the performance week, so it’s nothing like those other songs.

    Really? Look at all the people from idol that have revieved nominations over the years. Pop, country, r&b, Christian, urban, rock, general categories, etc.

    Is it because of Idol or those artists’ own merits?

    Well without idol, none of them probably would have gotten record deals. So i think idol played a part
