Grammy's may bar top stars as awards try to crack China

Alabama Shakes, Elle King, Wolf Alice, Foo Fighters and Florence + The Machine are the 2016 nominees for the 58th annual Grammy Awards Best Rock Performance category -- but only one artist can take home the prize. We'll get to see which of these talents shines at the Grammys Monday, February 15 on CBS, but we're taking a look at who should win as opposed to who will most likely win.

You can check out more buzzing news coverage from Music Times right here!

NOMINEES:
"Don't Wanna Fight" -- Alabama Shakes
"Ex's and Oh's" -- Elle King
"What Kind of Man" -- Florence + The Machine
"Moaning Lisa Smile" -- Wolf Alice
"Something from Nothing" -- Foo Fighters

WHO SHOULD WIN: "Moaning Lisa Smile"

There's nothing in the mainstream music world like this song. Yeah, it would be nice for nostalgia reasons if "Something for Nothing" would win, but, from a strict performance point-of-view, this grungy song blows the other songs out of the water. Plus, that's a boring song, to be honest.

As we mentioned in our coverage of the Best Rock Song category, "Ex's and Oh's" is a pop song, so it really shouldn't be in the category, but whatever. Other than that, Florence and Alabama Shakes are most likely going to take home the win, just because of appeal. With that in mind ...

WHO WILL WIN: "What Kind of Man"

Florence Welch is arguably one of the best vocalists of our generation. While I just said that Wolf Alice should win, the world isn't perfect, especially when it comes to this awards ceremony, and "What Kind of Man" is a fine choice to take home the Grammy.
