    Tony x Gaga. The only one I see spoiling is Jon Batiste.

    I think this is a 4-horse race between Tony/Gaga, Billie, Olivia and Jon Batiste.

    I agree that Tony/Gaga are winning. I saw this tweet about how Gaga is doing like 3 documentaries during voting, so she’s absolutely campaigning. That ludicrous Music Video nomination says a lot about how much support they have. They’re almost certainly winning engineered which will give them a good boost.

    Next I think is Billie. Underestimating her is this forums favourite thing to do. She’s a darling and the album is well-liked so I wouldn’t rule her out that easily.

    I think Power said it perfectly with how Jon could be who a few of us thought Jacob Collier would be. Nominations in Visual Media, Music Video, Classical, R&B, Jazz and Americana is the definition of cross-genre appeal. He’s probably the dark horse here.

    With 7 pop albums here, I don’t really think Olivia can win. Unlike Billie and Tony/Gaga, there is no other genre that’s gonna rally behind Sour. I think votesplitting will kill her chances. However, it’s by far the biggest album nominated so because of that I don’t wanna entirely rule her out.

    My ranking:
    1. Love For Sale
    2. Happier Than Ever
    3. We Are
    4. Sour
    ——————–
    5. Back Of My Mind
    6. Planet Her
    7. Montero
    8. Justice
    9. Donda
    10. Evermore

    Honestly, I think it’s a race between Tony x Gaga and Billie. Really no idea which way it will go.

    Tony x Gaga of course have the narrative and popular vote. But Billie could easily take it, we know how much voters love her too. It will be a tough race.

    I’m not too sure of Sour’s chances. Whilst it did very well and is a commercial success, I just can’t see Billie or Tony x Gaga losing to it. Although a young and successful singer-songwriter is usually a path to Grammy success, it feels like Sour doesn’t have the edge and unique sound/story that Billie had with WWAFAWDWG. As strong as the album is, we’ve heard plenty of albums like it before.

    Billie can upset. But the Album of the Year actual and factual, “Sour” by Olivia Rodrigo. Case closed.

    Love For Sale winning feels like a throwback to the old days. I’m here for it. Gaga has been in the Album of the Year conversation for years now and this seems like her best shot. Especially with it being Tony Bennett’s last project. I wouldn’t underestimate the power of Billie Eilish. But I’m confident 2021 will be the return of veterans.

    The one who slays in acclaim AND a collection of huge hits AND big album success is Sour. Fellow teen winner when we all fall asleep’s original release had just one t10, while Sour’s 3 huge smashes spent over a year in the t10 combined.

    Tony could win for sentimental reasons.

    Will win: Love For Sale
    Could win: Happier Than Ever

    I would’ve definitely predicted Happier Than Ever. But the fact it missed Best Engineered Album and Finneas missing POTY doesn’t bode well for her. It seems that the group of voters that helped her win in previous years are not very invested this time around.

    The goods news is Pop voters are still here for Billie especially since she got nominated in the Pop Categories and BMV. But she faces stiff competition from Olivia who also did very well. I really think that Billie and Olivia will cancel each other out.

    Could win: We Are

    Should win: Happier Than Ever

    Sour is great album but it’s still light pop record about teen love. I don’t see 60 y.o. voters choosing it before Love For Sale, We Are or Happier Than Ever. Billie Eilish is other case. WWAFA,WDWG was innovative, Sour is not.

    What’s innovative about “i’m a bad guy, duh” and “I just kinda wish you were gay
    To spare my pride” ?
