    What song is the frontrunner here? Is this category more competitive than originally thought? What are some notable snubs and surprising inclusions?

    Everything about LFS is screaming Genius Loves Company round 2 to me so I went with IGAKOY.

    I want to predict HTE but cant believe she will get 3 times in the spawn of 4 years

    Guess its between IGAKOY, LTDO, Freedom and Dricers License, and maybe a lucky chance for Montero

    Literally does because wasn’t that Ray’s last recorded album too ? It corresponds so well. I’m thinking of changing ROTY to Tony & Gaga too lol

    I think I’m going with Tony and Gaga, but I hope they don’t win it. It’s not the “record of the year” by any stretch of the imagination. “Leave The Door Open” would be a typical winner, but I’d prefer that over IGAKOOY.

    I can deal with Tony and Gaga winning AOTY but I Get a Kick Out of You winning ROTY would be  a huge disappointment, especially when Happier Than Ever and Leave the Door Open are right there.

    I would actually prefer I Get a Kick Out of You winning ROTY over Love for Sale winning AOTY.
    Love for Sale has some filler and IGAKOOY highlights Tony and Gaga’s performance. But I would love to see Billie win for the third year in a row

    I still have LTDO winning but you guys are almost convincing me to change to IGAKOOY (it’s my second place for now). The Genius Loves Company comparision is just too perfect.

    I could see other songs winning but from a prediction standpoint, it’s hard to bet against LTDO. Just seems like an incredibly easy and logical win, no matter who their competition is.

    they didn’t even get in through a straight vote, only through alphabetical the last min expansion slot and w no Pop/Duo nom to help, the old geezers will flock to Bennett instead

    i think it’s ltdo vs hte vs dl. ltdo would probably be the safest option but also a boring one imo. i’m rooting for dl cause i don’t wanna see yet another billie win, and bruno in that case as well.

    I personally see only four songs being competitive.

    Leave the Door Open – Silk Sonic has all the qualifications to win: chart topper, excellent production, and two Grammy favorites. It’s also a very safe winner and it would be hard for anyone to argue a win for LTDO.

    Happier than Ever – The voters love Billie. Need I say more? Just kidding, but she has won five times in the GF in the last two years, including ROTY twice. We thought she wouldn’t be able to win twice in a row, yet she did. The odds are against her in that sense- winning Record three years in a row seems unfeasible by anyone. However, Happier Than Ever is easily the best song in the lineup and best of her discography, and it would be a shame for this one to lose when bad guy and everything i wanted are winners. It’ll come down to if they want to award Billie for her best song and have her win three years in a row or choose someone else to reign.

    I Get a Kick Out of You – Gaga and Bennett received a plethora of nominations everywhere, including Best Engineered Album and Best Music Video, which no one saw coming. The Grammys showered love for the duo’s album, perhaps because it is Bennett’s final record, and perhaps they think it was good enough to deserve the nominations. One could feel pretty confident in believing that they will be one of the biggest winners of the night, even though Record might not be the most deserving place for them to win. Gaga and especially Bennett sound fantastic, so it’s very plausible for them to take the win.

    driver’s license – The song that blew up out of nowhere and became one of the defining song of 2021 by the hottest new artist. If Olivia wins, it would be well deserved as she completely dominated the year. I think this song would be more competitive in Song, but it could sweep and claim both trophies. Since this is her first time submitting, we don’t know how the Grammys will react to Olivia, if they feel she’s more deserving than the beloved and veteran acts she’s up against. They do love their young female singer-songwriters, so she shouldn’t be off the radar, but her competition is fierce.

    Happier than Ever is criminally overrated.

    I agree with this. ROTY and SOTY seem fairly open – I could see any of those 4 winning either/both.
