This Bahamanian babe claimed this award in 2008, the only other time she contended. The choice of all our Editors as well as a plurality of our Users, she has odds of 10/9 to pick up a bookend.
Rihanna is also leading among the five nominess for the top award -- Artist of the Year.
Her nearest rival in this race is Katy Perry. Third time is not likely to be the charm for this California girl who is also nominated for Artist of the Year.
Nicki Minaj won Best Rap/Hip-Hop Artist last year but is likely to lose his first bid in this race.
And Kelly Clarkson who won this award in 2006 after losing in 2005 is all but certain to lose her third nomination.
