BIG TIME RUSH
BLACK EYED PEAS
The Rock Father™ predicts: BIG TIME RUSH. Aside from having their own show on Nick, the boy band is also the most kid-friendly in the bunch.
The Rock Father™ predicts: Is there any doubt that JUSTIN BIEBER will be the winner here?
The Rock Father™ predicts: TAYLOR SWIFT... though SELENA GOMEZ could pull it off.
Born this Way - LADY GAGA
Firework - KATY PERRY
Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO
Sparks Fly - TAYLOR SWIFT
The Rock Father™ predicts: This one is a tough call, but I'll go with GAGA for the simple fact that she encourages all of her little monsters to embrace their inner beauty.
There's two glaring omissions here - that being rock and hip-hop. Sure, you could say that BLACK EYED PEAS fit the latter bill, but let's be honest - they moved well into the pop realm years ago. Surely the kids like some true rock bands and rap artists, right? I certainly hope so. It seems that these nominees were selected by dart board.
