So for the handful of music lovers that happen to follow the grammys (I know many don't give a poo) ...the nominations were handed out tonight.

I'll do the big 4 categories:

Record of the Year

- Lonely Boy: The Black Keys

-Stronger: Kelly Clarkson

- We Are Young: Fun

- Somebody That I Used To Know: Gotye

- Thinkin Bout You: Frank Ocean

- We Are Never Getting Back Together: Taylor Swift

Album of the Year

- El Camino: The Black Keys

- Some Nights: Fun

-Babel: Mumford & Sons

- Channel Orange: Frank Ocean

- Blunderbuss: Jack White

Song of the Year

- The A Team: Ed Sheeran

- Adorn: Miguel

- Call Me Maybe: Carly Rae Jepsen

- Stronger: Kelly Clarkson

- We Are Young: Fun.

Best New Artist

-Alabama Shakes

- Fun.

- Hunter Hayes

- The Lumineers

-Frank Ocean

All the categories: http://www.grammy.com/nominees

Biggest surprises to me was no best new artist nom for Ed Sheeran, Frank Ocean (MUCH deserved) and Miguel getting best song nom (Also much deserved. Awesome album)

Hunter Hayes and whoever the Alabama group is getting nommed over Ed Sheeran. Hahaha.

And Call Me Maybe going for SOTY -_-

Maybe Ed doesn't count towards this year's noms because his album release was fairly late in the US, while A Team released as a single before hand? I dunno...

I think thats the same reason there was nothing for Kendrick Lamar in the rap categories.

Call Me Maybe for song of the year? I thought the Grammy's were respectable?

I'm a country and rock fan so I really don't know who most of these people are. I REALLY don't understand why the Grammy's are sucking Hunter Haye's dick though. From what I've seen all of the nominations are a huge joke.

My dad won a Grammy a while back so I get tickets every year and I get to vote for the nominees. This year was probably one of the worst and least interesting of all time.

I liked channel orange and el camino, neither would even sniff the album of the year in recent years. Funs album is pretty good too, those guys really have some talent.

Sheeran is talented, but in this business, people get bored of just some guy with an acoustic guitar.

It really isn't that fugging hard to right catchy finger picking songs on an acoustic, trust me.

I should neg rep you for bagging on the most talented musician of our generation, I really should.

To write his music off simply as "catchy" is ridiculous. He has some of the deepest, most lyrically entrancing and genius tracks that have ever been released in the acoustic genre.
