f*** grammy’s it’s always the same nominees, it never changes. It seems to me like Rihanna, lady gaga and katy perry have always been nominated even though they hadn’t any album out at the moment. The choice they make is completly influenced by how famous the people they invite are, i though those kind of ceremonies were supposed to reward real musicians but it’s only focused on the audimat that they are going to make. AND WHERE THE F*** IS BLINK 182, THEY JUST RELEASED AN ALBUM WHICH WAS N°1 ON THE TOP WORLD FOR CHRIST SAKE, change the guys who choose the nominees if you want music industry not to totally sink into an ocean of shit.

I bet Childish Gambino will win a Grammy within a few years. His debut “camp” was incredible. and it’s only $5.99 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Camp-Explicit/dp/B00605YUQ4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1323055020&sr=8-2

Beyonce should have been nominated. The list of best R & B album is thoroughly disappointing. And Honestly, Lady Gaga’s last two albums were awesome, but Born this Way just doesn’t have the same appeal. So I don’t understand how she got the nomination over Beyonce.

I think rihanna and lil wayne should have had more nominations. The best rap performance, best rap/sung and the best rap are gonna be very competitive, i look forward to seeing who wins

No offence to Taylor Swift fans but I’m glad she wasn’t nominated for a grammy this year! She is overrated and most of the grammys she won weren’t even ones she fully deserved. Ever since the Kanye VMA incident, she’s been winning awards non stop. Coincidence? I think not! And no I’m not a hater for speaking my mind to any 12 year old Taylor Swift fan girls!

What? Speak Now isn’t up for album of the year? Why? Fearless won and Speak Now is ten times better! I’ve never even heard of the Foo Fighters… :( I was so hoping for at least the nomination! This stinks.

Wow, are you serious? The Foo Fighters have been around since 95. Dave Grohl formed them after Nirvana (if you have no idea who Nirvana is, then that’s very sad). Their album Wasting Light hit #1 when it was released. Although they are up against some hard competition, I would love for them to win.

Obviously this is why the Grammy awards ceremony is not for the younger crowd when people don’t even know nominees that that are artistsya who have been around for years. Completely uneducated in music should not watch this show!

great!! u haven’t heard of the Foo Fighters?! Are you for reals??!! they were around before Taylor Swift, dude. Go suck on ur mommas nipples and maybe she’ll tell u the story how the Foo Fighters came to be. Maybe you’ll forget about Taylor Swift. She’s too crappy anyways, she doesn’t deserve any Grammy noms, she’s sucky. Gu Fuck urself!

It’s unbelievable that Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” wasn’t nominated for album of the year.
