"Love the Way You Lie"
Cee-Lo Green - 
"Forget You"
Jay-Z and Alicia Keys -

DAVE PICK: "Love the Way You Lie"
WHY?
Had to give this one to Eminem/Rihanna. This song hit such an emotional chord with listeners and was an instant hit right out of the box. Plus what an incredible comeback year for Eminem!
 
LEE PICK: "Empire State of Mind"
WHY?
Production is awesome and a great example of contemporary music.
 
SONG OF THE YEAR

Lady Antebellum - 
"Need You Now"
Miranda Lambert - 
"The House That Built Me"
Eminem f/Rihanna - 
"Love the Way You Lie"
Ray LaMontagne - 
"Beg, Steal or Borrow"
 
DAVE PICK: "Need You Now"
WHY?
I have to agree with Lee on this one! Such a great song and a rare number that bridges different genres. Was a hit on Pop radio as well as country! And Lee says it perfectly, “brilliant lyrics.”
 
LEE PICK: "Need You Now"
WHY?
Brilliant lyrics, old theme but great new words. Represents multiple genres.
 
ALBUM OF THE YEAR
Arcade Fire - 
The Suburbs
Eminem - 
Recovery
Lady Antebellum - 
Need You Now
Lady Gaga - 
The Fame Monster
Katy Perry - 
Teenage Dream
 
DAVE PICK: Teenage Dream
WHY?
No one has had a bigger year than Katy Perry. Huge album, multiple hit singles, pop culture icon, marriage to Russell Brand… couldn’t get much better!
 
LEE PICK: Teenage Dream
WHY?
Multiple Yop Ten hits. Rockin!
 
BEST NEW ARTIST
Justin Bieber
Drake
Florence and the Machine
Mumford and Sons
Esperanza Spalding
 
DAVE PICK: Justin Bieber
WHY?
Please, please forgive me, but except maybe for Drake, I really don’t see an artist on this list that had as much of a cultural and musical impact as Bieber Fever had in 2010. The question is now how long will he remain in the game? Did someone just say puberty?
 
LEE PICK: Justin Bieber
WHY?
Teen heartthrob like so many before.
 
BEST FEMALE POP VOCAL PERFORMANCE
Sara Bareilles - 
"King of Anything"
Beyonce - 
"Halo"
Norah Jones - 
"Chasing Pirates"
Lady Gaga - 
"Bad Romance"
Katy Perry - 
"Teenage Dream"
 
DAVE PICK: "Bad Romance"
WHY?
Sorry Katy Perry, but have to give this to Gaga. With each song, her vocal abilities continue to shine and what’s sad is the songs you haven’t heard yet unless you own her albums are vocally her best! Can’t wait for new Gaga in Spring 2011!
 
LEE PICK: "Teenage Dream"
WHY?
Awesome rockin! Everybody can relate to this song regardless of age. Skin tight jeans have always been hot J
 
BEST MALE POP VOCAL PERFORMANCE

"Haven't Met You Yet"
Michael Jackson - 
"This Is It"
Adam Lambert -
"Whataya Want From Me"
Bruno Mars -
"Just the Way You Are"
John Mayer - 
"Half of My Heart"
 
DAVE PICK: "Just the Way You Are"
WHY?
This was a tough one cause I do believe Adam Lambert definitely deserves this one. But Bruno Mars should be the winner! His vocals are amazing and his album is one of the year’s best!
 
LEE PICK: "Whataya Want From Me"
WHY?
His performance has more power than the other nominees.

"Don't Stop Believin' (Regionals Version)"

"Misery"
Paramore - "The Only Exception"

DAVE PICK: "The Only Exception"
WHY?
This one definitely deserves to go to Hayley Williams and the guys in Paramore! Amazing song, amazing lyrics, and a great vocal performance.
 
LEE PICK: "Don't Stop Believin' (Regionals Version)"
WHY?
Well duh…. It’s my favorite show!

DAVE PICK: "Airplanes II"
WHY?
Another tough one but give it to B.O.B, Eminem and Hayley Williams. One of the catchiest songs of 2010 and truly made people look at the sky and wish on shooting stars. Wouldn’t be surprised is Katy & Snoop steal this one too!

Classic song with numerous great vocalists.
