Without being biased, the winners of the categories should go as follows: Best new artist: Drake Best female r&b/soul: Chrisette Michelle (defines the category with her music) Best male r&b/soul: Maxwell (saw him in concert: dope) Song of the year: Prefer "Turnin' Me On" but "Single Ladies" will probably win. Album of the year: Maxwell Record of the year: Knock You Down Best Collaboration: Monica/Keyshia Cole or Keri Hilson/NeYo
