Grammy Nominations...Adele nabs 6 nods! Kayne West rustles up buzz for best song!
The glitzy high-profile "Grammy Awards" show is in everyone sights in the music biz now that the nominees were announced with a lot of pomp-and-circumstance on a dazzling show-stopping special the other eve.
Adele, Bruno Mars and Foo Fighters each rustled up 6 nods!
Lady Gaga - proving she's no flash in the pan either - was blessed with 3.
But, there were a number of snubs and controversies in the wake of the envelope-opening ceremonies.
Surprisingly - although Taylor Swift was singled out in three categories - she was shut-out for Best Album (Speak Now) which was an eye-brow raiser to many!
Meanwhile, talented upstarts like "The Band Perry" - soaring in popularity in recent days - scored big with the ballad "If I die Young".
Kanye West had a lot to crow about, too.
The Pop Star Wonder not only racked up 7 noms, but got singled out for "song of the year" (by virtue of his hit "All of the Lights").
Curious, when you consider that the album is was coined on - "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" (which critics have raved about) - failed to make it into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
An infamous tune now, perhaps?
Meanwhile, Paul Simon must be licking his musical wounds.
His critically-acclaimed - "So Beautiful or so What" - got a big thumbs down, too.
Sometimes, the choices don't make any sense, or is it just the luck of the draw?
The Grammy Award Show will broadcast on February 12th live from downtown Los Angeles.
See 'ya there!
