2012年格莱美奖提名揭晓 Kanye West获得最多提名
Revealed: NickiMinaj announces the nominees for record of the year
Kanye West and British singer Adele topped the list tonight as the Grammy 2012 nominations were announced at a ceremony in Los Angeles.
Rapper West got a leading seven nominations, while Adele got six, although the 23-year-old singer bagged some of the most prestigious categories, including record, album and song of the year.
Adele, whose album 21 is the biggest seller of the year with 4.7m sales, saw her searing groove Rolling in the Deep nominated for record of the year, along with Bon Iver’s Holocene, Bruno Mars’ Grenade, Mumford & Sons' The Cave and Katy Perry’s Firework.
Of course the London-born singer is currently resting her voice due a vocal chord injury - which saw her have to cancel her American tour and which could prevent her performing at the actual Grammys ceremony in February next year.
Her album 21 will compete against Foo Fighters’ Wasting Light, Lady Gaga’s Born This Way, Mars’ Doo-Wops & Hooligans and Rihanna’s Loud for the album of the year honour.
West, meanwhile, mainly received nomination nods in the rap categories with his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy up for rap album.
He also is up for song of the year for All of the Lights, for which he has a co-writer credit.
Best new artist nominees are folk band Bon Iver, country trio Band Perry, rappers J. Cole and Nicki Minaj and Los Angeles-based DJ-dance music performer Skrillex.
The late Amy Winehouse - who died of alcohol poisoning in July, received a posthumous nomination for her duet Body and Soul with Tony Bennett in the pop duo or group performance category.
Lady Gaga's album Born This Way is nominated for album of the year while Taylor Swift's Speak Now is vying to take the country album category.
Swift's single Mean is nominated for both country song and solo performance.
A total of 78 categories, encompassing all musical genres, were announced by the Recording Academy, the sponsor of the Grammys.
