At last some of the most important submissions for the 59th GRAMMYs had been leaked giving us a refreshed view on the possible nominations.
And we begin with the pop field packed with the biggest hits of the year, dance club tunes, teen-pop realness and of course Adele. Some of the early contenders such as Coldplay, Paul Simon and the 1975 had been switched to rock whereas Lady Gaga did not submit anything, despite “Perfect Illusion” being eligible.

This year’s top contenders include: 6-time GRAMMY winner, with seven nods this time, Justin Timberlake –represented in three out of the four field categories–; New Zealand’s wunderkind Lorde; Bruno Mars who is also up for the general field; among others. Now, let’s take a closer look at each category.
Best Pop Solo Performance: One thing is certain here. We will definitely a brand new winner (since Adele was not even submitted). We might also have the first male winner; in a category that has definitely been dominated by females.
