    This is an interesting category. Take Posner and Graham out for sure. My thought is that “Hello” will take Record and Song Of The Year, while “Lemonade” takes Album…but if they want to screw Beyonce in that category again, maybe she wins here. There’s no way she’s winning over Adele in Record Of The Year, given the Academy’s avoidance of urban music in that category.

    Also, “Love Yourself” is actually a major contender here, especially given Ed Sheeran’s involvement.

    A split between ROTY and SOTY for two songs nominated for both hasn’t happened since the 1994 Grammys when “All I Wanna Do” and “Streets of Philadelphia” split the categories. Chances are, whoever takes one will take the other, and given the voters’ love for huge pop hits within the last several years, the winner looks to be “Hello.”

    I may be wrong, but I can see Adele edging out Beyoncé in three categories (Pop Solo, ROTY and SOTY) but losing to Beyoncé in AOTY.

    “Love Yourself” would have had a chance had it not been snubbed in ROTY, so I think it’s out in this Adele vs. Bey throwdown.

    “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” is just here for the ride. There are no corresponding nods to support a win for it here.

    “7 Years” managed to get these big nominations, but I don’t feel like they will make it passed a Pop Duo Group win.

    In conclusion, this is a “Hello” vs. “Formation” category, but “Hello” will win by a hair.

    This is an easy call. For almost 10 years now, the winners in this category have been huge songs that had mainstream impact in their respective years. “Hello” is a slam dunk here.

    “I Took a Pill In Ibiza” should be happy its nominated. “Love Yourself” is impressive, but doesn’t scream winner. “7 Years” pales in comparison. “Formation” made a political statement and had major impact. It could upset. My money is on “Hello.” Voters will sop Adele and Greg Kurstin up like a biscuit dipped in gravy.

    SHOULD WIN: “Hello” – Adele & Greg Kurstin, songwriters (Adele)
    WILL WIN: “Hello” – Adele & Greg Kurstin, songwriters (Adele)

    This is a good stat. But stats are meant to be broken. I feel like Formation could take Hello down, especially since this looks like Beyonce’s year.

    I think 7 Years will win this category. This song seems factory made for NARAS. Also, Hello didn’t not have the longevity RITD had it’s year.

    Yes Formation is upbeat, but is very well written political song. Political songs don’t win Song of the Year unfortunately…

    Should Win: Formation by Beyonce
    Will Win: Hello by Adele

    That’s a pretty grand statement to make.

    Didn’t the Dixie Chicks win with an extremely political song? Yes, yes they did.

    Ugh, Hello is such a boring song. Formation or Love Yourself should win here. I just realised Love Yourself is not a ROTY nominee, I thought for sure it was all day long. That hurts its chances but Ed Sheeran is a huge plus for this song to take this award. I can see Formation winning, it’s a statement song and Single Ladies did win here, so if another urban song is winning, wich is rare, why not a Beyonce song? But as with other categories, Adele is here too so you never know. I’ll go with Hello for now because they’ll screw Beyonce again.

    Will win: Hello
    Should win: Formation / Love Yourself

    “Hello” is nothing short of breathtaking. The lyrics, vocals, and production soar. A win in both ROTY & SOTY are totally deserved.

    Some people need to get real “Single Ladies” only won SOTY because that was the only general field award Yawnce entered it and she “claims” co (cough)wrote “Single Ladies” should have been ROTY and “Use Somebody” should have won SOTY

    The power of Beyoncé to make people think “Formation” is a “political song.”

    I see it, I want it, I stunt, yellow bone it
    I dream it, I work hard, I grind ’til I own it
    I twirl on them haters, albino alligators
    El Camino with the seat low, sippin’ Cuervo with no chaser

    Yeah, not really.
