    Two posthumous noms is something quiet strange, will they win tho?

    Such horrible choices. Not enough diversity in the tracks. Two posthumous nominations seems odd – will they cancel each other out? No one has heard of Kaleo or Nothing More, although I dig the “No Good” track by Kaleo… Looks like the Foo Fighters might be set up for a win here. Because they don’t have enough Rock grammys.

    Chris Cornell will win.

    Cohen will receive the award for best AR song.

    Cohen deserves it and it’s not close

    Kaleo’s No Good got nominated as a track from an album A/B which was submitted, but not nominated, during last GRAMMYS’ eligibility period (alog with their hit Way Down We Go). and that’s ok with Grammy rules becuase No Good wasn’t submitted for 59th GRAMMYs.

    same happened this year with a track from Maren Morris’s album – Hero.

    but the difference is that I Could Use a Love Song was still reaching new heights on Billboard charts during voting period, while No Good peaked in August 2016 & the last time it charted on any Billboard chart (Rock Airplay chart) was on September 3, 2016.

    nominations review committees usually tried to have a fresh set of nominees, rock committee once again proves it’s different 😉

    if only Cohen got the corresponding Rock Song nomination, I would bet on him. with another posthumous nomination for Cornell, i guess in the end it will be Foo Fighters.

    Honey, these nominees are shitastic. Kaleo and Nothing More are too unknown to win. Chris Cornell has potential. Foo Fighters don’t have the appeal they had six years ago. Leonard Cohen will likely prevail.

    SHOULD WIN: Don’t care
    WILL WIN; Leonard Cohen, “You Want It Darker”

    My bet is Cornell. He was a previous winner, his song made Oscar shortlist, this would be his last nomination and last year another dead musician won in this category.

    Cohen will win AR performance.  People who vote in that field usually are older than rock voters.

    Nothing More could be the dark horse.

    Foos’ song is really weak. Their last nomination in this category was “Something from Nothing” and that year the winner was A. Shakes.

    Kaleo won’t win.

    Leonard Cohen is the most likely winner. But I’m rooting for Chris.

    This is tough to predict.

    “Go to war” by NothingMore has been my favorite song since I heard it from youtube last week. It toatally deserves all its 3 noms and I think it could win rock song.

    “Run” is not really good as their previous winning tracks , but I wish it could win.

    There are 2 posthumous artists and none of their works are as deserved as “blackstar” from David. I am wondering why they usually nominate works by posthumous artists.
