Best Dance Recording
▪ “Rocket” – Goldfrapp
▪ “In for the Kill” – La Roux
▪ “Dance in the Dark” – Lady Gaga
▪ “Only Girl (In the World)” – Rihanna
▪ “Dancing on My Own” – Robyn
In what will most likely be the most exciting category of the night it seems as though Electronic artist Goldfrapp stands no chance; the category will most likely go down to the other four divas. La Roux’s In For The Kill is lacking without the Kanye West verse he added on the remix, and Lady Gaga’s Dance in the Dark was praised in reviews of her album The Fame Monster last year, but the song lacks the popularity for Academy members to select it. The category will most likely come down to the commerical pick (Rihanna) and the indie fav (Robyn).

Dancing on my Own is one of 2010’s best pop songs. It features synth beats and its lyrics allow it to be a universal message for all listeners. The song lacks the popularity which would allow Academy voters to choose it.
Rihanna’s Only Girl is one of the best production songs of the year, and would be an easy choice for Record of the Year, if she hadn’t already controlled the category with Eminem. Rihanna’s solo efforts Rated R and Loud were some of the biggest snubs of this year’s Grammy’s, and voters may be sympathetic to the barbadian superstar.
