I feel this is going to Beck or Gaga.
I don’t see the Grammy’s voting for Camila and Ariana. Also Shallow’s overperformance might help Joanne here, as pop voters may just check Gaga’s name across the board (I suspect it’s what they did in the nominations process, hence why we saw a surprise joanne nomination).December 8, 2018 at 10:25 am #1202694359
Joanne is a filler nominee, make no mistake. It being here boosts Gaga’s chances in every other category, but it’s not going to win.December 8, 2018 at 10:26 am #1202694362
This is Gaga’s weakest category though. And it won’t be televised. So it’ll be a good pre-show indication: if we see that she wins here, you can bet she’s going to sweep in all other categories later in the show.December 8, 2018 at 10:30 am #1202694367
Havana. No doubt. GIAW runner up.December 8, 2018 at 10:30 am #1202694368
Joanne is not winning. It was a name check nomination, much like Hold Uo by Beyoncé a few years ago (though that was more famous than Joanne).
I still have a hard time buying a Beck win, but he could upset Havana. He seems like the dark horse.
God Is A Woman would be a very appropiate winner based on the whole female stuff (lol). But for real tho, I could see God Is A Woman winning if they want to give Ariana a consolation prize or something, or if some voters are not inclined to vote for Camila because she’s too new. But it’s a 3rd place.
Rap songs don’t win in the pop field. If Fancy lost to Say Something, then I don’t see Post Malone winning.December 8, 2018 at 10:36 am #1202694375
Beck or Ariana. I just don’t see the Grammys nominating someone like Camila.
Well, they’ve already nominated her twice.
This category is so obviously Cabello’s for the taking that all the what-if talk seems ludicrous. Her surprise second nomination in Pop Album has virtually sealed the deal for her. There are going to be a lot of upset Ariana Grande fans in a few months.December 8, 2018 at 10:43 am #1202694382
Why? Ariana Grande still has, you know, talent.December 8, 2018 at 10:51 am #1202694388
There are plenty of talented people nominated in this category. There are plenty of talented people who never win Grammys. What is your point?December 8, 2018 at 10:55 am #1202694395

You said Grande fans will be mad. I don’t see why they would. Plus, Camila Cabello and Ariana Grande are close friends anyways.December 8, 2018 at 11:00 am #1202694399
I don’t think “God Is A Woman” is out of the race, and I don’t think “Havana” (Live) is unbeatable either.
I’m predicting “Colors.” If I’m wrong, I’m wrong. How did it get here?December 8, 2018 at 12:31 pm #1202694484
I think Beck will win this one.
Havana doesn’t sound a “respectable song” like the previous winners of the category. I don’t think Grande’s song has a chance. It has two disadvantages: It’s a Max Martin song and it’s explicit. Post Malone is the male Katy Perry of the category and Lady Gaga is relevant to Pop Duo rather than Pop Solo.December 8, 2018 at 12:44 pm #1202694499

These are some of the most nonsensical arguments I’ve ever seen on this forum.
I do think that IF anything is going to beat Havana, it’s Colors since alternative and alternative-leaning songs have done well in Pop Duo/Group (and Royals won here some years ago), and it appeals to a much different audience than the other nominated songs, but traditionally, the biggest hit wins this category, and I don’t see any compelling reason why that tradition would change this year.
