Other nominees for the Best Pop Solo Performance award are Set Fire to the Rain (Live), Adele; Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You), Kelly Clarkson; Wide Awake, Katy Perry; and Where Have You Been, Rihanna.

The 55th annual Grammy Awards will be handed out Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
