      sara smile by hall & oates, didnt that song came out in the 70?? and i agree alycia, taylor swift is nominated for every damn thing!

    • oh yes!

      go beyonce!

    • marie

      i agree
      she is so over-rated
      if she knew what’s best for her, she would take a long break
      i’m just sick of her winning everything
      and most of the awards she doesn’t even deserve

    • Little Bit Of Info

      sara smile by hall & oates? didnt that song come out in the 70s?? and i agree alycia, taylor swift is nominated for every damn thing!

    • Genesis

      I agree with the person above me. Not only is she always nominated for something, but she wins everything. I mean the girl is really sweet, and she’s got some sweet songs but she isnt that great :/

    • whatever, yo

      why isn’t Jason Mraz on there… his song was killer this year!

    • Elena

      Congrats to all of these artists.
      I’m secretly hoping that Lady Gaga wins something. I wasn’t too sure about her at first, but the woman is rather talented. And I agree with the whole Taylor swift thing. She’s sweet and all, and I am a fan, but her music isn’t as great. But congrats to her anyway. For 19, she’s achieved a lot.

    • Whoever

      If Kanye West knew that interrupting Taylor Swift would only propel her fame, I bet he would not have done it! I like her songs… their cute and catchy…. but she is limited vocally and I could probably find a random chick that could be just as good as she is…. hell i could probably do it

    • Mr. Grammy

      This has ‘got’ to be the worst grammy nomination list in ‘many’ years. Lady Gaga? Taylor Swift?

    • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

      why yall mad?!? where the beyonce haters?!?!?! ahahahahahahaha.. BEYONCE OWNS THE GRAMMYS.. AGAIN! ahahahahahah.. i love it. and taylor swift is is owning everyone (expect beyonce). don’t know why people dont like swift, she’s adorable.

    • Pam

      Beyonce and Taylor shouldn’t be in the Pop Female category!!!All the Lip Syncing around the world has hurt Britney with Grammy voters…If she wins for Best Dance the award should go to the Robotic Chipmunk that recorded her vocals.

    • SARAH


    • Little Bit Of Info

      i agree with both @Whoever and @Mr. Grammy because the reason kanye did that was for her not to win many awards, but in fact she winning every one she’s been nominated for! Plus this is an horrible list, mos def, keri hilson, ac/dc?? what the hell?? lol

    • Jennyfer

      @Mr. Grammy: Excuse me, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift are two very impressive artists. Both have written their own songs on their CD, and I think that they can both sing pretty well. I rather have them than some artist who is manufactured and lip syncs all the time.

    • Audra


      I know right?! The media feels like they need to kiss her ass now just because Kanye was a jerk to her. SHE DOES NOT DESERVE ANY OF THESE BULLSHIT AWARDS SHE’S BEEN WINNING. Okay, perhaps the songwriting one because she can actually write really well. It’s just the singing department that she is completely lacking in.

    • lmao

      The industry is dead. Look who is nominated. The same crowd over and over and over at the MTV’s, The VMA’s, The AMA’s, now the Grammy’s. The same people with their so called “music” lol

    • Liz


      I think Lady Gaga’s a freak but she can sing rings about Swift. Actually, I can sing as good as Taylor Swift. But does that mean I deserve a record deal, grammy nominations, etc. HELL NO. Reserve these things for REAL singers.

    • Anna

      I think Tokio Hotel deserved a nomination. Their new album is amazing.

    • Rose

      Why isnt ‘I Gotta Feeling’ a nominee for Song of the Year?? Wasn’t it like the biggest song of ’09?? bizarre! Blah! So over all those songs nominated, bring on the new stuff now!

    • bigloo

      UGH! taylor is not grammy worthy at all.
      carrie underwood should have been nominated in a million more categories! same with kelly clarkson!

      taylor swift got nominated in pop because she IS pop. not country. this really bothers me as to why she’s “both”. she’s not a vocalist, period. shouldnt be in the vocal categories at ALL

    • alycia

      @bigloo: i couldn’t AGREE with you more!!!!

    • john

      Zac Brown band for best new artist

    • RD

      What’s the difference between “Album of the Year” and “Best Record”?

    • chazwishesshe/helookslikebrad

      Love some maxwell

    • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

      @RD: was that a serious question? ahahahahaha

    • Liz

      Grammy Awards are so fake. Taylor Swift should sen West a thank you card without him she would never have gotten awards.

    • Cristobal

      Beyonce is still the QUEEN! Rihanna, bow down, Jennifer Hudson, bow down, Lady Gaga, bow down. Oh and I am super happy for Taylor Swift!

    • nona

      this is the worst grammy nomination EVER, and I think john mayer deserved a nomination^*

    • Amy

      Taylor’s got a lot of haters. I guess the bigger the star you become, the more hate you get. FYI, Taylor’s album was the best selling album in ALL genres wayy before Kanye’s interruption. Grow a brain before you make dumb statements people.

    • Cristobal

      @RD: Album of the Year is the Artist’s whole CD or Album and Record of the Year is the most popular Single or Song off an Artist’s Album.

    • kdd


    • alycia

      @Amy: yeah maybe she’s had a lot of cd sales but she should not be nominated for female vocalist…have you heard sing live…she sings offkey more then she sings on key…

    • Elizabeth

      John Mayer album is rubbish. Thank God he did not get a nom. He stole Jason Mraz award last year. That’s enough John Mayer.

    • Tracy

      Yeah Kings of Leon. I love Use somebody. There whole album is hot.

    • Jen

      Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King…….Dave Matthews Band.
      ……………………………Album of the year…………………………………………

    • ann

      Ugh..I’m so sick of Taylor Swift. The pity party should have ended months ago.

    • Sara

      I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that thinks Taylor Swift is EXTREMELY overrated. I find her personality endearing and think that she is a talented songwriter, but as far as the Grammy committee placing her in the same category as some of these power-house singers…its laughable.

    • lillian

      If Kanye knew what he was starting at the VMA’s i am sure he would not have done what he did. All these sympathy votes for Taylor are starting to get old. 8 nods for her–unbelievable. Beyonce, Carrie, even lady Gaga can sing sircles around her. i AM JUST HOPING THAT THE GRAMMY VOTERS APPRECIATE REAL VOCAL TALENT. Taylor is a sweet girl but she can’t sing. I sure hope she does not open the Grammy’s. It is painful to watch her struggle with notes she can’t get and trhrowing her head around like a freak.

    • Tracy

      @ann I agree with you no more pity party. It’s getting very old.

    • jade

      I’am happy about Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood’s nominations.

    • haha

      hope taylor swift win all the category.. all those tranny album need to be banished especially the hermaphrodite one..
      all the taylor hater is thinking that those hermaphrodite is the future.. yeah future of FLOP HAHAHAHAHAHA
      get that.. ugly people like lady hermaphrodite should just go away from the entertainment business.. it’s annoying and disturbing to see ugly people .. ugh.. enough said..

    • Tracy

      I’m surprised they didn’t put Taylor Swift in the Best male pop vocal performance, so she can win that one to.

    • Whoever



    • viv

      What’s sad is Performers like Swift are willing to collect all of her ill gotten gain. She should learn to be generous. I would feel bad knowing I took awards other stars deserve to win for the work they done. Swift definitely is selfish.

    • Misa


    • jj

      Taylor is so damn overrated. Ugly ho has no vocal talent whatsoever.

    • Annie


    • Danielle

      Beyoncé got 11 Noms, SUCK ON THAT HATERS!!!!
