Full List Of 2013 Grammy Nominations

Taylor Swift and LL Cool J hosted the Grammy Nominations Concert Live last night at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn where they unveiled the musical acts nominated in each of the 81 categories.

I’m not going to say I’m surprised, but the nominees read like a list of who’s-who in the boys club known as the Rock and Hip-Hop genres. 

Not saying I’m surprised, but I would be lying is I said I wasn’t disappointed that were weren’t more nods to the Rihannas, Florence + The Machines and Nicki Minaj’s of the world.

The acts with the most nominees (6 each!) went to Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, the band FUN., Jay-Z, Mumford and Sons, Frank Ocean and Kanye West. See what I mean about it being a boys club?

That being said, those are 6 of the most inventive and successful artists in the game right now, so more power to them. There is a lot of buzz for R&B newcomer Frank Ocean, who stole the show at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year.

The Grammy’s is expected to feel a lot different this year than last, which was basically “the Adele show.” 

The Grammys will air on “Grammy Sunday,” February 10, 2013.
