Grammy nominations announced


The Grammy Awards

Hey, the Grammy nominations have been announced. Wanna know who’s up for them? Sure you do. The main contenders are Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean and The Black Keys, who all have six nominations each (if you count Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach’s nod for Producer Of The Year as one for the whole band).

Obviously, there are about 900 categories at the Grammys, so I’m not going to list them all here. If you’re really interested, you can look through the complete list on the awards’ owner website.

Or, instead, you can do the sensible thing and watch E from Eels’ acceptance speeches for the categories he expects to win, which he has already recorded and ‘accidentally leaked’ to the internet:
