    Sam Smith is the frontrunner with a possible upset by Ed Sheeran.

    I actually think this is pretty open as of now. Sam Smith has the edge because he is the man of the moment but other than that i wouldn’t be surpised if it was coldplay/ed/miley.

    How i rank as of now…

    1. Sam
    2. Ed.
    3. Coldplay
    4. Miley
    5. Katy
    6. Ariana

    We can immediately rule out Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande.  Their albums, especially the former, are too bubblegum.  Katy Perry will continue her losing streak.  Coldplay are always a contender.  They are well liked.  NARAS is starting to cream their pants over Ed Sheeran.  If they want him to finally win a Grammy, it will be here (since he won’t win AOTY).  The ROTY, SOTY, BNA and Pop Solo noms push Sam Smith into frontrunner status.

    SHOULD WIN: Sam Smith, In The Lonely Hour
    WILL WIN: Sam Smith, In The Lonely Hour

    This year’s nominees are a joke. Sam Smith is the only serious contender here. Lana del Rey’s Ultraviolence was definitely the biggest snub. And Sia’s 1000 Forms of Fear should have been there instead of Miley, Ariana, and even Ed.

    My Winners Ranking:
    1.In The Lonely Hour
    2.PRISM
      =X
    4.Ghost Stories
    5.Bangerz
    6.My Everything

    I don’t like to say someone is DEFINITELY not winning,but I’d rule out My Everything and Bangerz right away.They were the albums that probably got the tie.The Grammy’s love Coldplay,but PRISM,X and In The Lonely Hour had a bigger impact.Ultimately,I see Sam taking this with both Katy and Ed possibly upsetting Sam.In a crazy scenario,Sam and Ed,who are both up for AOTY could split votes which could see Katy coming out on top.But if I have to put my money on someone winning,I’d pick Sam

    I’m pretty sure Sam’s winning. However if they wanna reward Ed then they will do it in this catagory.

    Who Will Win: Ed Sheeran – X
    Who Should Win: Sam Smith – In the Lonely Hour
    Dark Horse: Miley Cyrus – Bangerz  

    Ed Sheeran’s album received better reviews by the critics and is only honored this year by the Grammys for his album as a whole (at least in terms of X… I know he has that LOTR movie song nom). He hasn’t won a Grammy yet and this his 3rd year of nominations. I think they will want to give him Pop Album and spread the wealth a little amongst the Brits. I liked both Ed and Sam’s albums. I believe Sam’s album is brilliant and don’t get why people seem to think its weaker than Ed’s… to which I say “whatever.”

    I think Miley is a real dark horse and here’s why… She had a whole era with this Bangerz album. It was almost like a movement. It was her big shock factor return to the music scene after previously releasing an album that didn’t do so well. This was her make it or break it moment and she made it. She scored 2 massive hits (“We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” and another Top 40 hit), sold over a million copies (one of the few albums to do so in the category actually) and had her crazy, successful and well-publicized Bangerz tour. She’s only, what 20 and a veteran to the music scene? I could see NARAS going left-field an awarding this album over AOTY nominees (a la the times they gave Kelly Clarkson her Pop Album wins).

    Nah, Miley has no chance. If they want to go another way, it would be Katy, Coldplay or even Ariana Grande. Miley had to be tied with someone to get in as a 6th nominee. She has no chances at winning.

    My Everything and Bangerz are joke. Anyway, I really hope Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour to win the Best Pop Vocal Album.
    But, let’s see Metacritic’s rating of the albums:
    Ghost Stories:  61/100
    Bangerz: 61/100
    My Everything: 64/100
    Prism: 61/100
    X: 67/100
    In the Lonely Hour: 62/100

    X gets the highest rating but whatever I’d go for In the Lonely Hour. I honestly want Sia’s 1000 Forms of Fear to be in the nominees which getting 76/100 from Metacritic!

    In The Lonely Hour will win this. Out of all of the albums nominated here, it’s the most relevant one during voting. It currently sits at #5 on Billboard 200 and “I’m Not The Only One” is peaking at the right time. Ed poses a threat (his album was the most streamed album on Spotify in 2014), but he failed to get a Pop Solo nomination which tells me that he probably won’t have as many supporters as Sam Smith. 

    The others really have no chance, but if Sam and Ed split the votes (which they won’t), I can see Katy or Coldplay snatching the Grammy, but that’s highly unlikely. Miley and Ariana (who people underestimated in this category) should just be happy that their Disney/Nick days did not affect them from earning their first nominations.

    This is Sam’s award. 

    1. Sam Smith
    2. Ed Sheeran
    3. Katy Perry
    4. Coldplay
    5. Ariana Grande
    6. Miley Cyrus
