So this year’s televised Grammy Nomination Special was larger then ever. With anything large comes performances from Lady Gaga, Usher and appearances by Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry. The entire special was actually pretty entertaining as Gaga tore up the stage with her Marry the Night performance and then closed the shoe with a duet with Sugarland. But enough about the performances! How about the nominations?
Adele (of COURSE) got nominated for her song Rolling in the Deep and album 21…she pulled in 6 nominations this year including Album of the Year, and Record of the Year.
Kanye West got nominated for 7 Grammy’s but didn’t score an Album of the Year nomination for “My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasy” which in my opinion is easily one of the albums of the year.
But in Kanye West fashion, 7 Grammy’s wasn’t enough for him so he decided to file a complaint. His reasoning for not being nominated for Album of the Year is because he has put out too many albums.
Yeah, okay Kanye just keep on making that music we all love.
But who got snubbed?
Taylor Swift only got nominated for 2 Grammy’s. Someone who puts her heart and soul in to her albums that are so HONEST should get dozens of Grammy nods. I mean I’m sure she is humbled by getting nominated but come on Grammy people! She is one of the artists who shows a clear story line in her music and for that she should have gotten more nominations.
Beyonce was only nominated for 2. Best Collaboration for her song Party with Andre 300 and Best Live for her I Am world tour. Really? Beyonce that just released her most true to life album yet called “4″ couldn’t even get 4 nominations?
My theory: The people who vote for the Grammy’s love people who can be buzzed about. Adele, Nicki Minaj, J Cole, The Band Perry…they are all artists who have massive hits on the radio so it’s obvious that they would get nominated. I mean we all know that Adele is going to clean house which is fine because she is a musical mastermind.
But let’s talk Skrillrex, he came out from the d-j booth and just slapped EVERYONE in the face when he got nominated for 5 Grammy’s! Not only did he get nominated but if he wins it’ll be like when Jennifer Hudson won a Oscar. I’m not sure why I compared it to that but just go with it.
Who do you think got snubbed, or who do you think is going to win?
