Grammy nominations announced


The nominations for the 53rd annual Grammy Awards were announced yesterday, with Eminem the clear leader, taking ten whole nominations all for himself. Up behind him was newcomer Bruno Mars with seven nominations.

Representing Great Britain are Florence & The Machine and Mumford & Sons, who are both nominated in the Best New Artist category. They’re up against Justin Bieber, Drake and the amazingly named Esperanza Spalding. I hope she wins.

Of course, there are about a billion different categories at the Grammy’s, so we’re not going to list them all. Just go here and take a look: The ceremony itself takes place on 13 Feb at the Staples Centre in LA.
