Grammys Grammy Awards Michael Buble Paul McCartney Carole King music entertainment news 13579086

Our two music awards editors -- David Schnelwar and Darrin Dortch -- agree on the winner of Best Traditional Pop Album at this Sunday's Grammys. 

“Christmas” - Michael Buble -- David, Darrin
“A Holiday Carole” - Carole King
“Kisses On The Bottom” - Paul McCartney

David's analysis
A holiday album has never won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. This may be the year that ends.  

After all, Michael Buble pulled off the impossible in this category by stopping Tony Bennett’s undefeated streak in 2009. Buble has won in this category three times.

“Kisses On The Bottom” was highly publicized but, surprisingly, Paul McCartney is not a Grammy favorite as of late. He lost Best Pop Vocal Album twice, first to Kelly Clarkson (2005) and then Amy Winehouse (2007).

Darrin's analysis
Christmas albums never win Grammys, but Buble’s disc sold extremely well. Plus, he’s a three-time winner in this category. He’ll edge out veteran Paul McCartney (“Kisses On the Bottom”).
