Hey y'all, if you are looking for the Grammy Nominees click here.
Here are some highlights!
*Imogen Heap, one of our "Monday Morning Music" artists is nominated for Best New Artist along with James Blunt, Chris Brown, Corinne Bailey Rae (who is amazing), and one of my favorite Idol winners, Carrie Underwood.
*Ladysmith Black Mambazo...remember this from mean girls, when Lohan's momma in the movie goes "But you LOVE Ladysmith Black Mambazo"...well, they are a real group and are nominated in the World Music Category for Best Contemporary World Music Album.
*Mary J. Blige leads the nominations with eight! One of her nominations is for "One" which she recorded with U2's Bono. If you haven't listened to this, download it right now because it is amazing.
*The Red Hot Chili Peppers are rockin it this year with six nominations.
*JT has four nominations for his album "FutureSex/LoveSounds." Other artists with four nods are Beyoncé, Bryan-Michael Cox, Gnarls Barkley, Israel Houghton, T.I. James Blunt, the Dixie Chicks, John Mayer, Danger Mouse, Prince, Rick Rubin, will.i.am and John Williams each earn five nods.
*That awful song "My Humps" is nominated. Honestly that could possibly be the worst song I've ever heard.
*There are wayyyy to many categories to post a full list of the nominations but check it out for some new tunes. Obviously "Grey's" soundtrack music is all over the Grammy nods so I really do hope they win for their Soundtrack.
49th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on "GRAMMY Sunday," Feb. 11, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
You bet the Beet will give you full coverage, it possibly will include nip slips and crotch shots but here at the Beet we also take time to sit back and enjoy the music.
