Song of the Year is the reward to song-writers, and Sia Furler's had this one coming. Despite having written hits for many popular artists over several years, Sia has never gotten a nomination of her own. But "Chandelier" blew everybody's hair back, with perhaps "Shake It Off" -- the song that deliberately signalled the end of Taylor Swift's country and folk days -- only nipping at its heels.
Who will win: Sia, "Chandelier"
