Our four pundits -- Gold Derby forum moderators Darrin Dortch, Rob Licuria and David Schnelwar -- and Gold Derby executive editor Paul Sheehan agree on three of the five nominees for Record of the Year at this year's Grammys: "Bad Romance" (Lady Gaga), "Empire State of Mind (Jay-Z & Alicia Keys) and "Need You Now" (Lady Antebellum). Three of the four think that "California Gurls" (Katy Perry) will earn a bid while a different trio believe "Love the Way You Lie" (Eminem & Rihanna) will contend as well.
Nominations will be announced during a CBS prime-time special on Wednesday. The 53rd annual Grammy Awards take place on Feb. 13 in Los Angeles with the top awards, including this one, handed out during the CBS portion of the event. This Grammy -- one of just four in the General Field along with Album, Song and New Artist -- goes to the performer, producer, engineer and/or mixer of the record. Last year's winner was "Use Somebody" performed by Kings of Leon, produced by Jacquire King and Angelo Petraglia and engineered/mixed by King.
