Don't bet on it though.
Best Dance Recording
My Pick: DANCE IN THE DARK - Lady Gaga; Fernando Garibay & Lady Gaga, producers; Robert Orton, mixer (Track from: The Fame Monster) [Streamline/KonLive/Cherrytree/Interscope]
My Prediction: ONLY GIRL (IN THE WORLD) - Rihanna [Island Def Jam]
And don't count out LaRoux - they are the only ones in this category nominated for Best Electronic/Dance Album - so they may pull an upset...BUT, I think Rihanna's ties with R&B, Rap & Pop voting members will pull her through over La GaGa.
Best Electronic/Dance Album
My Pick & Prediction: FURTHER - [Astralwerks] - The Chemical Brothers
Chemical Brothers is well known and beloved in this category. However, and again, don't count out LaRoux. People who didn't for them in the previous category may think they are worthy here. And then there is always Groove Armada - just depends how electronic they want to go here.
Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album
My Pick & Prediction: LET IT BE ME: MATHIS IN NASHVILLE - Johnny Mathis
I really want Mathis to win, so I will predict him...lol, as if that will make it so. Michael Buble, Barry Manilow, Rod Stewart & Barbra Streisand are all here - WOW! What a competition, when you really look at it. Shall be interesting... Part of me still thinks Buble really, but I am putting the positive vibes in the universe to finally give Mr. Mathis his due already.
