For "Stronger". Also in the same category are Taylor Swift with that annoying "Never Ever Getting Back Toghther" song, Gotye with "Somebody That I Used To Know" and somebody else that I've never heard of.
Kelly Clarkson just got a Record of the Year Grammy nom

fun. for "We Are Young"
Frank Ocean for "Thinkin Bout You"
Black Keys for "Lonely Boy"
Would have been a good group if they left T-Swizzle out of it.

No Lana del Rey for Best New Artist. So they can go fuck themselves.
(god, I hate the Grammies. no, I hate EVERY award show except the Oscars, the only one left with any integrity).

Damn, I think Frank Ocean is going to end up winning Album of the Year! Often that category is won by the one rock act or old-timer Jann Wenner favorite in the group because the bigger-name pop/rap/R&B nominees end up splitting the vote, but this year you've got Jack White, the Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, and fun. with Channel Orange as the only alternative to rock/guy with guitar music.

That stupid Gotye song is the most overhyped piece of annoyance in years.

A song titled after a cliche doesn't deserve to be nominated in this category. And I like Kelly too.

Can't believe that inane Taylor Swift song got nominated. It's like something your kid makes up in the back seat of the car during a long ride, making you wonder if abortion would have been the right choice, after all.

I'm surprised that Call Me Maybe got nominated for Song of the Year, but not Record of the Year.
If it had to be up for anything (and that's debatable) I'd think it would be for the production/mix of the record and not for songwriting.
Carly Rae was also not a new artist nominee, but she is not alone in that snub. She joins two notable acts that were complete studio/producer creations - One Direction and the previously mentioned Lana del Rey.

Aww, it's a Grammy.

Carly Rae has been around for a while in Canada, right? Maybe she doesn't qualify for best new artist.
I love the lyrics of "Call Me Maybe." It's a very sexy song.

Taylor Swift will win all the Grammy awards.... again, because the American Music Industry has become the Teengirl Music Industry.
(and nobody has been able to prove, yet, that Taylors schlock is ghost written)

Teen girls want to name the Grammys the Bieber-Swift awards.
(or for short, the "BS Awards")

Kelly Clarkson, love her or hate her, has a Grammy nomination because she can actually fucking well sing naturally.
I'd take Kelly Clarkson over Taylor Swift any day of the week in terms of pure pop singing.

Kelly Clarkson, um, she really sucks
|by Anonymous||reply 17||12/06/2012|
I think I'd rather listen to Ashlee than Kelly. Kelly kind of filled the void left by Ashlee's musical departure by flooding the radio station with plodding, faux-emotional rock ballads. Yuck. Ashlee's voice is more interesting and less try hard (in my opinion).
|by Anonymous||reply 18||12/06/2012|
She really doesn't suck. The way her voice sounds on recordings is exactly what she sounds like live. She's fantastically talented but often selects poor material.

Kelly Clarkson has no star quality and doesn't have a distinctive style to her singing or her image, for that matter.

Try as they might to look "edgy" and "outre", the Grammy nominations often look as conservative as a Radio Disney playlist chart. They still haven't embraced true "indie" and have instead gone after the major label versions of it (Black Keys, Lumineers etc). I'd have been impressed if they had given some noms to different acts like Grimes, Jessie Ware, Purity Ring, Tame Impala or Alt-J. Not even a nod to indie/blog darlings like Azalea Banks or Sharon Von Etten.
Re: the Del Rey snub: my theory is that many in the "industry" did not like having her forced down their throats and the "SNL" meltdown only confirmed that.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||12/06/2012|
Alt-J put out the best indie record of the year. Totally agree, R24. I like the Black Keys, but they're the current Kings of Leon. (I do have an odd affinity for folk indie rock, so I do like The Lumineers...)
The Grammy's are the silliest awards this side of the People's Choice Awards.

Madonna's crappy album was nominated for nothing, right?

Maybe not but I like her better than the generic jingles singer Kelly.

Madonna won best Electronic Album for Confessions on the Dancefloor a few years back. I bet she's pissed that she didn't get any nominations. Hopefully this will motivate her to actually release some nomination-worthy music.

The last best Dance Recording Grammy was when Janet won for "All For You".
