Grammys 2013 Predictions: Who Will Win, Who Won't, and Why

Best Pop Solo Performance

Nominees:

Adele — "Set Fire to the Rain" (Live)
Album: Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Kelly Clarkson "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)"
 Album: Stronger

Carly Rae Jepsen "Call Me Maybe"
Album: Curiosity

Katy Perry "Wide Awake" 
Album: Teenage Dream

Rihanna "Where Have You Been"
Album: Talk That Talk 

Predictions: 

Lauren: Wow, GIRL POWER. If Adele doesn’t win, I’ll be confused. She’s nominated for a live song. I don’t think Katy Perry deserves it, I’d be happy for Clarkson, and Carly Rae should get best song. But, while I am (was) Rihanna’s biggest supporter, you can’t put her voice up against Adele’s. It’s not fair.

Ernest: Rihanna deserves it. Adele will win it. The Grammys are not giving Perry, Rihanna, or Jepsen a statue for vocals. Only potential upset would be Clarkson taking instead.

David: I’m not Rihanna’s biggest supporter, but this song was low-key one of Rihanna’s best songs. Great production pretty incredible balance of fragility and power. I do like Adele too, and her singing voice is impeccable, so it’s a close call, but “Where Have you Been” is so dynamic.

Should Win: Rihanna. 

Will Win: Adele.
