Grammy nominations are out


LINK

quote:

Nominees for the 55th annual Grammy Awards were revealed Wednesday night, and six different artists are tied for the most nominations -- Kanye West, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons and fun.


quote:

The Black Keys' "El Camino" was nominated for album of the year, along with fun.'s "Some Nights," Mumford & Sons' "Babel," Ocean's "channel ORANGE" and White's "Blunderbuss." For best new artist, fun. and Ocean were joined by Alabama Shakes, Hayes and The Lumineers.

Record of the year nominees were "Lonely Boy" by The Black Keys, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" by Clarkson, "We Are Young" by fun., "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye featuring Kimbra, "Think Bout You" by Ocean and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Swift.


I don't get the appeal for Ocean, but lots of deserving people getting nods. I hope the Shakes take home noob of the year, but i'm sure fun will

Frank Ocean's Channel Orange is an amazing album. My vote for "Album of the Year" Grammy.

Frank Ocean is the truth. I'm seriously hoping he pulls through with 'best new artist'. If you didn't really care for his debut album -- download Nostalgia, Ultra. I truly believe that mixtape is superior to the majority of major label albums.

Frank Ocean will clean up with at least 3 wins.

If Frank Ocean or the Black Keys don't take home the AOTY award it's a debacle.

If Swift takes it I hope Ye punches her and gives it to Frankie.

Don't underestimate the role of his gayness will have on the results. The Grammy's won't want to go against the first openly gay hip-hop artist

Is it me or are those nominees not terrible? I mean, given the Grammy's history, this is a positively radical nominee list.

they aren't at all. i think ever since the arcade fire win, they are realizing they don't have to cater to the teeny bop people. nice to see people who actually deserve a few up there.

Will Hoge was nominated for Best Country Song for "Even if it Breaks Your Heart"

Eli Young Band recorded it but Will wrote it and his version is about 98873848 times better.
