    Has Coldplay ever gone pop before? Do they stand a better chance here?

    If Aguilera releases in time, she’ll have a good chance with ‘Your Body’ in Best Pop Solo Performance, since it’s rumored to be a good vocal work. I mean, she’s won 4 grammys in this field out of 18 nominations, 6 of those were for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

    “Your Body” will be released in time.  Christina Aguilera is scheduled to release the single next month.

    Glee was previously nominated in Pop Performance by a Group and Compilation Soundtrack. It’s not Traditional Pop at all.

    Why is everyone listing Mylo Xyloto in pop ? They are sure leaning towards a more electronic sound but I still think they should be submitted for Rock. I can’t regard it as a pop album… And so should be Making Mirrors by Gotye. Some Nights by Fun. might be submitted for Alternative album.

    they are listed here just as a possibility because till we see the entry lists, we do not know where those albums will be submitted.

    Isn’t Florence a solo artist? If I remember correctly, she was submitted as a solo artist previously. I mean, I know she has a backing band, but then again, so do a lot of artists.

    Anyway, I’m rooting for her and Kelly Clarkson in the Pop Field.

    i can’t wait for the submission lists as only then we will know where albums by Rihanna, Coldplay, John Mayer, fun., Gotye, Florence + The Machine & No Doubt will end up.

    i think it can look like this:
    Rihanna, Talk That Talk -> Urban
    Coldplay, Mylo Xyloto -> Rock
    John Mayer, Born And Raised -> either Americana or Folk
    fun. -> Alternative
    Gotye -> Alternative
    Florence + The Machine -> Alternative
    No Doubt -> Pop

    with No Doubt, Pink, Maroon 5, Justin Bieber & Kelly Clarkson nominated in Pop Album. still, One Direction is the best selling pop album released in 2012…

    ^I think you’re probably right about Rihanna and Coldplay, though No Doubt could submit to Rock as well, but again, I think you’re probably right. Florence + The Machine submitted to Rock previously, so they could again, though I can definitely see them trying for Alternative this time.
