The Song of the Year GRAMMY is awarded to the actual songwriters of a popular, beautiful single, and while that's not always the stars who turn it into a platinum smash, this time around, all of those in front of the piece also worked behind the scenes. 2018 promises to be a big year for songwriters at the GRAMMYs, and one of these five tunes might see those who actually came up with the words receive a golden gramophone. Click through to see our predictions of who can win!

#1Kesha, “Praying”

Real Kesha fans know that she has been one of the most talented songwriters in the game for years now, and that she can craft a hit like nobody else. Her previous electron-pop style never impressed GRAMMY voters much, but in 2017 she’s got a different sound and she’s got something to say. “Praying” was touching, and it’s truly one of the best examples of powerful songwriting released this year.
