Eminem, Jay-Z, & More Kill The Grammy Nominations

The Grammy nominations were announced last night. Find out how many awards your favorite YBF celebs are up for when you read on…

Eminem secured ten Grammy nominations, making him the most nominated artist this year. Some of the Grammy’s he’s up for include song/record of the year, album of the year, and best rap song.  And at the other end of the spectrum, Kanye only nabbed up 1 and it’s for Best Solo Rap Performance for "Power".  Very interesting.  But it may be because the Grammy deadline was in September .  Who knows.

Newcomer Bruno Mars picked up seven Grammy nods.  Hope he’s not locked up that night. Jay-Z follows closely behind with six and B.O.B. and John Legend each have five. Drake is nominated for two awards for best new artist and best rap album.  And Beyonce grabbed up 2 nods–1 for Best Pop Vocal Performance for her Live version of "Halo" and 1 for "Telephone" with Lady Gaga

Newbie Janelle Monae‘s "Tightrope" was recognized in Best Urban/Alternative Performance and Sade received two nods.  Yay!  Rihanna grabbed 4–3 of which are due to her featurette on Em’s "Love The Way You Lie". the other is Best Dance Recording for "Only Girl".
