    Right now, Adele is considered a lock by most pundits to win most of the general field categories.

    Which raises the question…who could POSSIBLY pull an upset?

    Sound off.

    You tried it. 

    I think this “lock” stuff needs to stop. It could potentially jinx Adele, and I wouldn’t want that to happen because she deserves at least two of the top categories.

    In theory, there are really no “locks” with the Grammys since they love to shock people at times. I guess we would have to actually see if she is nominated and who she is nominated against. At this point, I guess her closest threat is Tony Bennett and his schlock.

    To be honest, I think any number of artists could “upset her” in AOTY. Although, I wouldn’t consider that an upset. She’s no sure thing in that category. That race is far from over, and will depend heavily on who else is nominated.  An upset would be another artist snatching ROTY or SOTY. I do think she has those on lockdown right now.

    I would have to see the nominations first in order to answer this question.  I believe Adele is the most vulnerable in AOTY.

    I just have a feeling, though I hope it does not happen, that Adele is going to lose ROTY. God I hope it doesn’t happen, but something is telling me ALOT of people will be throwing fits come GRammy night.

    Who could upset Adele in a GF category in particular?

    ROTY – SOTY (submission: “Rolling…”) I particularly don’t see any artist challenging Adele’s frontrunner status as of now. The other possible contender was Tony Bennett…. until his label submitted “Lady Is A Tramp”. “Body And Soul” would have given more competition.
    AOTY (submission: 21) I am not so sure about this one. I think sometimes that the AOTY nomination kinda validates anything else you are nominated for, so if she gets it, I would be 100% conviced she’s winning the other two. Part of thinks she could be snubbed here to give way to a veteran (Foo Fighters, Tony Bennett, Jay-Z/Kanye, Beyonce -gasp!-), but that would mean NARAS intentionally “kneecapping” Adele’s chances and, to be honest, I would be VERY surprised if she got snubbed in AOTY, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she will win. There are contenders with far more acclaimed albums (Kanye, Bon Iver).

    I agree that Adele is most vulnerable in AOTY. If she is nominated throughout the GF, voters might feel reluctant to give her all 3 awards if there are other deserving nominees and veterans. It all depends on the AOTY nominees though. She is unstoppable in ROTY/SOTY at this point. That might not have been the case if “Body and Soul” was submitted, but the GaGa duet is not winning.

    The only albums I could see beating out “21” in AOTY are “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” “Bon Iver” or “Duets II”  

    It would be a joke if “Rolling in the Deep” was not nominated. An absolute joke

    If My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is nominated, then it will be a HUGE threat. It means that NARAS listened to it, and that it is a serious contender. I think that Bon Iver, if nominated, could definitely have an impact. I may have said this before, but did you know that Adele is actually a fan of Bon Iver? How weird would it be if they are nominated with each other?

    Bon Iver is not getting nominated for AOTY. Just forget that. A nomination for them would be unprecedented in the history of the Grammys. 

    I can’t come up with anyone who has a chance to beat her in the GF. I guess Kanye might be the closest, but he has already lost this category multiple times. Why would he win in the year when he is up against the strongest contender in recent memory? 

    Record and Song, no one will come close. It wouldn’t surprise me if she got half the votes in both categories.

    Adele better look out for Ciara’s Masterpiece Basic Instinct, and Keri Hilson’s No Boys Allowed in AOTY. Hell Keri Hilson might sweep the GF field for her masterpiece legendary anthem “Pretty Girl Rock”. Oh well Adele you always have next year….
