2012 Grammy Nominations Announced

on Dec 01 in GrammysLady GagaTV

I was up early/stayed up late enough to briefly scan of the nominees for the 2012 Grammys and?... well, it’s pretty much what I expected.

So, the “Single Ladies” video’s number one fan scored seven noms which means the chances of having to endure an insufferable acceptance speech from him come Grammy night are uncomfortably high.  What is also surprising is not that Adele got 6 nods, but that she didn’t get more.  Was I the only one who thought 21 and its lead single “Rolling In The Deep” was gonna pull a Thriller and dominate every category it possibly could?  Adele’s collection of heartbreak jams is essentially a soccer mom album that we can all rock with and I assumed that an album that appeals to the Tupperware set, the Bieber nation, the Jersey Shore crowd and the ‘hood would be catnip to Grammy voters, no?  Don’t get me wrong, six nominations is decent but heck, Rihanna’s whips ‘n’ chains lovin’ a$$ scored 4 nods and she is uh… let’s say not quite as vocally blessed as ol’ Delley-Del.

In any case, congrats to all the nominees and Taylor Swift might wanna bring some “Just In Case” podium security with you know who being in the building too.  Check out a partial list of categories below or you can peruse over all 756 categories here.

Oh, and also take a lil’ peek at this rockin’ honkey tonk duet between Lady Gaga and Sugarland as they tackle Gahg’s “You and I” during the Grammys Nominnees special that aired on CBS… pretty dope.
