Grammy Noms Announced

Picture 52The nominations for the 52nd Grammy Awards have been announced and Beyonce leads the pack over Taylor Swift with 10 nominations. The winners of the Grammy’s will be announced on Jan. 31 when the ceremony is telecast on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Competing for Record of the Year is Beyonce’s “Halo,” The Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling,” Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody,” Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” and Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me.” If Taylor’s American Music Awards luck continues to be with her, then I’d say she’s a shoe-in for this one.
