      taylor swift 8 noms a JOKE
      go beyonce

    • Really getting tired of Swift

      Really. That’s enough Taylor Swift.

    • Burn

      Amy @ 12/02/2009 at 11:57 pm 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

      So true. These award giving bodies just couldnt ignore artist with the best selling album…and kanye has nothing to do with it.

    • AGA

      Gee–Some of you are really jealously mean!! Taylor seems like a nice girl,so how is she “selfish” She writes her own songs,does’nt lip-sync but you still complain. She has never been photograghed falling out of clubs and flashing her b88bs and ar*e and weather you like it or not–her Album was huge.If you don’t like her fair enough–but to call her selfish etc is childish! Also I really don’t think that the AMA’a VMA”S & grammy’s are all in it together for a pity party–Grow Up

    • viv

      Nobody is jealous of Taylor just sick and tired of all this. Enough is enough. You can get sick of a good thing. It’s well past time. I like Taylor but I know it’s not right for her to get all those awards. That goes for Beyonce to.
      I’m afraid if this don’t stop then it’s going to reverse on Taylor.

    • Annie

      @alycia: agree why taylor swift is nominated for everything she did nothing!

    • Paulie

      OUCH! They snubbed Whitney.

    • me me me

      MGMT are the best new artist from the choice given. and Kids is a really good song, although it’s gotten a bit old. the rest of the list bores me to death, except for maybe lady gaga.

    • me me me

      btw what’s with this taylor swift person? isn’t she a country music singer or sth? no one’s even heard of her outside of america and here she is nominated in all these categories…

    • cdnbritneyfan

      I feel that Britney Spears should have been nominated for something. This is one of the biggest years she has ever had as an artist. And her new single “3″ was one of the only 3 or 4 singles to debut at number one since 1998 (Lauren Hill had a song debut at #1 in ’98 and since then there have been 3 or 4 singles, all by American Idol winners to debut at #1). Her tour has sold out everywhere, and her album has been one of the highest selling of the past year. Even though alot of people here would disagree with me, you have to agree that she is pop music Icon, and I feel that alot of award shows dont recognize her her the way they should

    • lulu

      Its because her album is s*it
      I wish i hadn’t bought it
      Whitney’s ship sailed a long time ago

    • Odieroxx

      Best Rock Album is a hard category.

    • Pining for Chris

      I’m sick of all these commercial artists taking over the Grammys; the awards are a joke now.

    • TY

      I agree!!!!!!! One way to stop her is for us all to gang up and vote for whoever we think can win against her in the People Choice Awards. In country Carrie Underwood and pop Beyonce. I think these two have a better chance of beating her. She has NO talent in the vocals at all. Let’s stop her–at least in PCA awards.@marie:

    • maiii

      No Kelly? ;( :(

    • maiii


      Me toooooo! Kelly ;(

    • maiii


      i know ;( kelly is so much better and experienced and her album rocks ufff…. people are so mean

    • http://grammy tinamarjorie

      i am tired of taylor swift to me is too much she is overrated and she is heard both in pop and country radio stations also did commercial for rock band in which ishe participated to me is extremely too much for us us to handle

    • mayer

      Gaga and Taylor are not deserved to be nominated they really can’t sing…. Ohh Katy Perry Hot n cold.. WTF ? Still nominated for this year?
      Grammy really sucks … They are just as pooor as MTV, AMA, EMA etc…
      Kelly Clarkson’s latest album is not good enough. So it’s obvious when she is not nominated so much. Look at Song of the Year… Ooop that makes me sick !

    • mayer

      What abt Beyonce? Oh god,,, this girl… make me sick by her voice machine …. and never put her pants on on the stage.

    • lucy

      where’s kelly clarkson????

    • jamie

      i’m so glad keri hilson got a nomination but what about carrie underwood or mariah carey or whitney houston or kelly clarkson. all of these people has spectacular albums and not even one nomination. Also i have to agree with the majority of the comments, Taylor swift is a great songwriter but she is simply overrated. She just does not have the vocal chops like all the great pop divas. one more thing, beyonce is talented but is somewhat overrated because her songs just get on my nerves.

      P.S. They even forgot jordin sparks, battlefield was a huge success in the U.S. this grammy award season is gonna suck.

    • Lyra

      I think Cinema Bizarre must have nomination!

    • Cynthiia


    • Cynthiia

      GO BEYONCE !!!!! I LOVE YOUU!!

    • Christy

      im happy that Green Day got nominated!
      but im disappointed cause Taylor Swift got a LOT of nominations but she didnt deserve half of them!

    • George

      I have never heard any of these albums that have been nominated for album of the year. I wonder why

      Click the link!

    • Veronica Castaneda


      why fans didn’t vote?

    • Yum

      Kelly Clarkson has 1 nomination in the best Pop Album. Good Luck! Best vocals for sure. Where’s Whitney Bitch?

    • alexkziel

      Taylor again?
      When this pity party will end?

    • pixy

      I must add my “voice” in here. I agree with the bulk of you, Taylor should not have been nominated for HALF of those awards. Her songs are nothing but 12 year old diary entries. She can’t sing live AT ALL! I hold this with the same contempt as those who lip-sync. OVERRATED!!!! LET’S MOVE ON PEOPLE!!!

    • Anais

      I think TOKIO HOTEL should be in the GRAMMY’S their album is HOT and they are awesome live. Who chose these artists really??? I mean A lot of them are good and all but some people shouldn’t really be there!!! I can seriously name far better artists than the ones listed above except Beyonce :) shes unbelievably talented!

    • Miss Anonymous


      She is a great singer with great lyrics, she so deserves it all.

    • jess

      I like Paramore,P!nk, Greenday, ACDC, Death Cab, KOL, Red and silversun pickups the rest are rubbish and taylor swift ain’t nothin special!

    • BHA

      Kelly Clarkson not being nominated after breaking and setting the biggest jump to #1 in billboard history is a shame. She also had two of the most played/popular songs on the radio (and Itunes) in My Life Would Suck Without You and Already Gone. Plus her vocals blow these other contenders out of the water!

    • Dawson River

      I love Taylor Swift! She Will Win

    • Sally walker

      ok i love taylor swift but she shouldn’t be allowed to win all of these awards. i can understand a couple but not like the 5 she won at the ama’s and the 1 she won at the vma’s and i’m sure she will win at least 3 at the grammy’s. Lady gaga so deserves at least a couple of awards for singer of the year, album of the year or song of the year. She had 4 number 1 singles this year! Poker face, lovegame,paparazzi, and bad romance. Taylor had 2 Love story and you belong with me. btw im not saying anything bad about taylor because i do love her but its really not fair and i love lady gaga just as much (maybe a little more actually a lot more) so she better win at the grammy’s

    • Sally walker

      And also, why arent kelly clarkson and britney spears nominated for anything? they are two of the best singers ever and kelly’s 3 songs this year were really popular and so were britney’s 3 songs. the people who nominate the singers are retarded!

    • jamie

      @Sally walker: you forgot lady gaga’s just dance was also a #1 song.

    • xxx

      Taylor Swift isn’t crap… she can’t sing, her songs are poorly written (oh boohoo im in the bleachers) and she pretends she’s a country singer when she’s clearing a POP singer.

    • Ivy

      These nominees are such a shame!

    • Jill

      I too think Kelly Clarkson should have more nominations. Was Already gone submitted? If so, it should definitey be in vocal not Taylor! Kelly has huge talent! Taylor has very little as far as vocals go. And she is ALL pop no country. All country have crossover fan but not her.

      I hope Grammy’s dont bow down so low and have TS win any vocal category. It is a Shame if they do so..

      Many pops to liy sync but never Kelly! Maybe TS should!

    • Maria

      Grammy’s s#ck big time. They love the controversy until viewers start boycotting the show. Taylor s#ck to and no way she deserve to win. They keep this up then they are going to make it look like K-West was right.

    • Fergie Rocks !

      GO BEP !

    • Abbeye

      Some of you people seem so ignorant. Taylor Swift was winning awards and selling more albums than other artists long before the Kanye West incident. She was nominated for a Grammy LAST year too. So what if she misses a note every now and then. That just goes to show how genuine she really is. Half of the performers today don’t even actually sing. Taylor has worked really hard for everything she’s done and is now being rewarded for it. Kanye West didn’t do anything except make everyone in the world, including the president of the United States, think of him as a jackass. :)

    • Abbeye

      @alycia: Get over it, she deserves it! She sold more albums than anyone this year, and sold out a world tour.

    • Abbeye

      @Dawson River: Thank goodness somebody on here has a brain! :)

    • Abbeye

      @bigloo: She is a crossover artist! Country and pop. Kelly Clarkson hasn’t done anything this year to deserve a grammy!

    • Abbeye


    • Abbeye

      @Sally walker: Lady Gaga is not going to win Album of the Year. Taking that award from Taylor would just make everything about the Grammy’s look fake. Taylor sold more albums than any other artist this year! That’s why she’s winning awards. I do think Lady Gaga is super talented though and she snag a couple Grammy’s. I highly doubt anyone will get Album of the Year from Taylor though.
