It was always typical of the Grammy Awards that when considering the Record of the Year and Song of the Year contenders to draw similar conclusions between the near identical lists for the track categories. Every few years though we see two very different lists of songs in each category, ideally proving the difference between a big hit and a well written song. This year sees just one song appear in both categories, with two other artists submitted different tracks for Record than they did here. Only one can win on the night, will it be the same as I predicted for Record?
Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga make up just some of the previous nominees who could be in for another Song of the Year nomination in 2018. There are a lot of potential tracks here, but I attempt to break down the chances of each, while throwing in a few curve-balls who could sneak in when nominations are announced in November.
