Ok so it should be no surprise to anyone that Taylor Swift and Beyoncé are the leading nominees for the Grammy’s.  “The big Three,” which are Album, Record, & Song of the Year are up for grabs by both women. Swift is also the youngest person to ever hold the nomination for Album of the year. She will be 20 years old and one month when the Grammy’s are presented on Jan 31.

Can the leatard take it home ?!?

But you know there is always trouble for some artist. So is it just me, BUT is Kanye getting overlooked on purpose? surprisingly, all of his previous albums have been nominated for Album of the Year, and Heartless his smash hit from his album 808s & Heart Break, topped the charts this year. So what is REALLY going on? Whitney Houston also didn’t receive the nomination for Best R&B Album after her comeback album I Look to You also hit the top of the charts. 

Black Eyed Peas received six nominations, which puts them in a tie for third place for most nominations with Maxwell and Kanye West. DJ David Guetta, Jay-Z and Lady Gaga each received five nominations. 

Well I hope this years show is exciting !
