Only two of this year's Record of the Year Grammy nominees are also in contention for Song of the Year: Fun.'s "We Are Young" and Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesnt Kill You)."
Unlike Record of the Year, which is awarded to the artist, producers, engineers, and mixers, the Song of the Year prize is awarded only to the songwriter, and "We Are Young," written by Fun. band members Jack Antonoff, Andrew Dost, and Nate Ruess, along with producer Jeff Bhasker, is tipped to win by seven of our nine experts: Phil Gallo (Billboard), Glenn Gamboa (Newsday), Leah Greenblatt (Entertainment Weekly), Edna Gundersen (USA Today), Shirley Halperin (Hollywood Reporter), Lyndsey Parker (Yahoo! Music), and Gold Derby's Paul Sheehan.
"We Are Young" is also the frontrunner to win Record of the Year.

Our remaining two experts, Chris Willman and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil, are betting on Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," written by Jepsen, Tavish Crowe, and Josh Ramsay.
None of our experts predicts a win for "Stronger," which was written for Clarkson by Jörgen Elofsson, David Gamson, Greg Kurstin, and Ali Tamposi.
Rounding out the category are singer-songwriters Ed Sheeran ("The A Team") and Miguel ("Adorn"), who are also expected to sit out this race.
