    This is the easiest to predict category of the main 4. “Hello” has this on a lock. The Academy doesn’t like urban in the main categories, and Beyonce and Rihanna will split any Urban vote there is.
    “Hello” is so a ROTY type song (and deservedly so).

    Four out of five of these nominees are shitty. Rihanna & Drake are out for obvious reasons. Twenty Pilots don’t have enough name recognition. Lukas Graham made a Grammy-baity song. Beyoncé has a lot going on in her favor. However, NARAS adores Adele and her song is the biggest hit in this bunch.

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

    “Hello.” It’s like the academy purposely filled ROTY and SOTY with middling performing meh acclaimed songs to make sure Adele wins. At least when they stacked categories in her favor the last time around they filled it with stuff like Bon Iver. I say this all as a big fan of Adele…but seriously…are some of these songs even close to being anyone’s top 5 records of the year? Even top 20?

    I wouldn’t discount “Formation” for Record of the Year just yet. “Hello” is by far a huge hit, memorable and clean. But “Formation” is an anthem. Did you go to a Beyonce concert this year? When she performed that song the crowds literally WORKED with her- all the moves, all the passion. Her tour made so much money and buzz it’s ridiculous. And “Formation” became more then just a track. Similar to “Single Lades”. And I remember when “Single Ladies” surprised everyone in 2009 when it won Song of the Year. It was that impactful. If Beyonce had submitted that (and not “Halo”) she would have won.

    I know the odds are in Adele’s favorite here, but seriously- it doesn’t really feel like her year like it does for Bey. The only reason I am skeptical about Queen’s chances are that she missed the R&B nods for the track. That is truly odd and again, I would love some recounts to see what was really going on.

    “Hello” is a nice song. “Formation” is a movement.

    PREDICTIONS
    Album of the Year: Beyonce, Lemonade
    Record of the Year: “Formation”, Beyonce
    Song of the Year: “Hello”, Adele
    Pop Vocal Performance: “Hello”, Adele

    Hello probably the biggest lock in this category since… Rolling in the Deep.

    One thing that needs to be noted is that Greg Kurstin is up for Producer of the Year. That helps “Hello” even more here.

    What the fuck is Work doing here?.

    I’m not the biggest Beyonce fan, but I find myself rooting for her in all three GF categories and I was bored to death by Adele and this album except for Send My Love. So if it were up to me, Beyonce would clean the GF, but there’s no denying Hello will be the winner here.

    I think Formation is an anthem, everybody knows about the song, but I don’t get the feeling that everybody likes it, enjoys it or knows it very well. However, that means it wouldn’t have even been nominated (look at the R&B field snubs), specially for SOTY, so maybe there’s a chance voters are actually into it. But again, specially with these two categories, Adele looks very hard to beat.

    Will win: Hello
    Should win: Formation
