I think given Yo Yo Honey Singh‘s international fame over the past year, it is clear who will win. Maybe we will see a surprise but I highly doubt it.

- Maatibaani feat. JoyShanti – Tore Matware Naina
- Sonu Kakkar – Mahi Bin
- Neeti Mohan – Ja Ja
- Vasuda Sharma – Jaagi Jaagi Raina

The female category looks fairly open. From my first listen Sonu Kakkar stands out, but it is tough to say who will win. I for one will be following this one closely.
Who do you think will win?
