Grammys nominations predictions: Song of the Year

Our four pundits — Gold Derby forum moderators Darrin Dortch, Rob Licuria and David Schnelwar — and Gold Derby executive editor Paul Sheehan concur on just one of the five nominees for Song of the Year at this year’s Grammys: “Need You Now” (Lady Antebellum)

“Recovery” (Eminem) and “The Suburbs” (Arcade Fire). Three of the four think that “The Fame Monster” (Lady Gaga) will contend while while different trios believe “Live at the Troubadour” (James Taylor & Carole King),and “Soldier of Love” (Sade) will make the final cut. 

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, Record and New Artist — goes to the composers. Last year’s winner was “Single Ladies” performed by Beyonce and co-written by the singer, Thaddis “Kuk” Harrell, Terius Nash and Christopher Stewart.
