Grammys Grammy Awards Miguel Usher Estelle music entertainment news 13579086

Our two music awards editors -- David Schnelwar and Darrin Dortch -- agree on the winner of Best R&B Performance at this Sunday's Grammys. 

Estelle - “Thank You”
Robert Glasper Experiment - “Gonna Be Alright (F.T.B.)”
Luke James - “I Want You”
Miguel - “Adorn” -- David, Darrin
Usher - “Climax”

David's analysis
With the unexpected snub of Frank Ocean in this category, Miguel is the frontrunner with five nominations including Song of the Year.

Usher is Miguel’s primary competition. He is a seven-time Grammy winner.  This includes three wins for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for “U Remind Me” (2001), “U Don’t Have To Call (2002) and “There Goes My Baby” (2010).

Darrin's analysis
With Ocean snubbed here, Song of the Year nominee “Adorn” is a lock for the win.
