As we get ready to say goodbye to the year 2012, 2013 is looking to become an even more interesting year to come! And as always (envelope please) its time for one of televisions most annually watched events, the Grammy’s!
Earlier this week, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has released it’s air date as well as the nominees to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards! And boy this seems like a good one! It’s set to air on February 10, 2013 @ 8pm and only on CBS. And check out who’s hosting….. last years host LL Cool J and Taylor Swift! It’s being held at the Staples Center in Los Angles.
This year’s leading artist is non other than the Firework singer herself, Katy Perry, who is nominated for whomping 10 Grammy’s! Newcomer and Channel Orange singer Frank Ocean is making a very big debut as well. The openly bi-sexual artist made major mainstream when he wrote a letter on Tumblr earlier this July, just days before his debut album was to drop, admitting to being in love with someone of the same sex. He’s looking to take home 6 Grammy’s including Best New Artist, Record of The Year & Album of The Year!
FUN, Jay-Z & Kanye West are also sharing the 6 Grammy slot with Ocean as well as Mumford & Sons and Auerbach. Other nominees include Rihanna, Kelly Clarkston, Drake, Janelle Monae, Bruce Springsteen (who’s set to receive the MusiCares Person of The Year award), Maroon 5, LiL Wayne and much much more! I mean there is now 81 categories since they added 3 new ones since last years event!
Surprisingly rapper & pop artist Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber didn’t get nominated for any awards and both managers of the artist were highly upset about the decision Nicki’s manager even went to Twitter and let the Recording Arts Academy know how he really felt!
That was some bullsh!t for not nominating @NickiMinaj
Uh oh! But I Agree as well!…..Well for a full list of the all the categories and its nominees, check out the Grammy website! They are also doing a free contest where you can win a trip to see the Grammy’s in Los Angles!
