The nominees for Record of the Year are:
- “Hello” by Adele
- “Formation” by Beyoncé
- “7 Years” by Lukas Graham
- “Work” by Rihanna feat. Drake
- “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots
Who Should Win: “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots
I would be totally fine with Beyoncé, Adele, or Twenty One Pilots winning Record of the Year, but as a fake Grammy voter I cast my ballot for “Stressed Out” because find the instrumentation of it great – the synthesis string work is a real ear-grabber, and the rapped verses and sung chorus really work.
Who Will Win: “Hello” by Adele
Again, I predict Adele will win all her nominations simply because she doesn’t typically lose. But, hey, “Hello” is an incredible record.
