Slumdog Millionaire - which song will win?

OK, so I'm going to go public now with my complete and hopeless addiction with Slumdog Millionaire. I have seen the movie twice in the theaters, and have listened to the soundtrack probably in excess of 100 times all the way from beginning to end.

I think obsession might be a better word for it.

Obviously, I think the soundtrack is amazing. And apparently the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences agrees with me, as 2 of the 3 nominees for best song are songs A.R. Rahman created for Slumdog Millionaire.

I'm curious - which one do you think will win? (I'm totally not giving the Wall-E song a chance here.) My prediction is behind the cut after the poll.

Poll #1337905 And the Oscar goes to...

Which song will take the Oscar home?

Jai Ho (this song was used for the Bollywood-esque dance number before the credits rolled)
O Saya (the song behind the chase scene at the very beginning of the movie, with vocals by M.I.A.)

I think O Saya is the better song, with different song styles mixing together. So, I want that one to win. But Jai Ho is the more memorable song because of the dance number. No plot to pay attention too, just happy looking people getting down. It's Jai Ho that gets the nod.
