    A full list of the nominations can be found here. I don't feel like typing anymore, haha.

    Janelle Monae had better get fucking nominated for something, because her album wipes its ass with everything listed above.

    Record Of The Year noms are abysmal.

    Ugh, everything is updating so slowly. I can't find the full list yet!

    Chris, I heard Robyn was nominated for Best Dance Recording! I'm glad she was recognized.

    I just saw that about "Dance in the Dark!" Was it released to clubs or something? Because why would it be nominated if it was just an album track? Ugh. I get upset about the Grammys every year and I don't know why, haha. This is what they do.

    LoL I think it was release as a download to generate buzz for the album, but i wouldn't have thought that counted. But then again, apparently a live version of Beyonce's "Halo" has been nominated for Best Female Vocal so i guess anything is possible.

    The Grammy's are so infuriating, i don't know why i bother. I know they are bullshit, but i can't help it! :P

    I want to know how "Don't Stop Believin'" got nominated. Didn't that come out in May of 2009, making it eligible for the 2010 Grammys? I don't understand this Grammy nonsense!

    I definitely agree with Chris on the Janelle Monae front! The album is spectacular!

    I really hope 'Fuck You' and 'Love The Way You Lie' take in at least one each, both are phenomenal!
    The AOTY noms definitely ARE ridiculous! 'Teenage Dream'? Srsly?
