The Black Keys, ''Lonely Boy''
Kelly Clarkson, ''Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)''
fun. feat. Janelle Monée, ''We Are Young''
Gotye feat. Kimbra, ''Somebody That I Used to Know''
Frank Ocean,''Thinkin Bout You''
Taylor Swift, ''We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together''
Who Should Win: Gotye, because ''Somebody'' actually didn't sound like anything else on pop radio in 2012.
