    This category is rather blah.  Hiatus Kaiyote and Jeremih & J. Cole have no shot at winning.  Andra Day could surprise.  Tamar Braxton deserves to win for such a strong, powerful vocal.  However, The Weeknd will win due to his successful year.

    SHOULD WIN: Tamar Braxton, “If I Don’t Have You”
    WILL WIN: The Weeknd, “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)”

    The Weeknd can’t sing IMO, but they will give him this. Tamar should win this easily if it was *based on performance* and not politics.

    I agree that this category really is blah. My personal choice of nominees would be

    R&B Performance (Better Alternatives)

    D’Angelo and
    the Vanguard – Really Love

    Tamar
    Braxton – If I Don’t Have You

    Andra Day –
    Rise Up

    Monica –
    Just Right for Me

    The Weeknd –
    Earned It

    with Really Love taking the win. I also agree that The Weekend has no business winning an R&B Grammy for vocal abilities but most likely will due to “politics”

    Andra Day is the class of this category with the best vocal performance. I hope she wins somehow, and it’s nice to see her unexpected corresponding R&B Album nomination for “Cheers to the Fall.” Tamar’s vocal was strong on “If I Don’t Have You” and would be a deserving winner, but I liked “Love & War” better. “Breathing Underwater” is a bizarre song, so no to Hiatus Kaiyote. “Planes” is just awful. Both of these songs making it in over “Really Love” is insane. “Earned It” wins out for The Weeknd’s huge year, and that’s good enough, I guess. I’m kinda over this song and wish that “The Hills” had been submitted here and chosen instead. I’d still pick Andra Day to win, but at least it would have been more of a race.

    WILL WIN: The Weeknd, “Earned It” 
    SHOULD WIN: Andra Day, “Rise Up”

    It’s hard to upset in category where there is only one crossover hit and the rest are songs people never heard of.

    But Andra Day is probably the closest thing to a threat here. “Rise Up” is always in those commercials.
