    Which of these albums do you think will win Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album?

    My analysis:

    Two of these albums can be immediately ruled out. Barbra Streisand has been nominated in this category 12 times previously with no wins. Even her hugely successful Partners album could not win this category a few years ago. She has also not won a competitive Grammy in over 30 years. Walls, which was a commercial underperformance, is unlikely to change that trend.

    Christmas albums never win this category. Not even Michael Bublé’s blockbuster album could do it. John Legend is not likely to win.

    That leaves Andrea Bocelli, Michael Bublé, and Elvis Costello. Bocelli has one previous nomination in this category. This is Costello’s first nomination here. Bublé has been nominated here 8 times, winning 4 times. Bocelli may get some support from the classical branch and Costello may get some love from rock voters, but it’s hard to bet against Bublé, even with his 50/50 track record here. Three of Bublé’s losses were to Tony Bennett, who is not nominated this year. (The fourth was to Paul McCartney.) I’m predicting him to win.

    Bublé could also get some sympathy votes after what his son went through.

    Buble’s album is perfection in my opinion. His best yet. I’m going with him

    To be fair, that didn’t help him last time he was nominated.
