Despite the 12 votes "Swagga Like Us" will receive just from its songwriters, the sheer ubiquity of "Lollipop" will get the Grammy.

Who should win: "Low" - Tramar Dillard, M. Humphrey, Faheem Najm, Korey Roberson & Howard Simmons, songwriters
It's catchy like "Lollipop," but it doesn't drives us nuts. Plus we like boots with fur.

It's a lyrical avalanche.
