It's that time of year again! The year's biggest music awards — the Grammy's have announced their list of nominees! They held the announcements at an event called 'The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!' on CBS. 


The event included performances by Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Sugarland, and Jason Aldean (phew, that's a long list!). We were happy, and quite frankly not too surprised, to see some of our favorite artists get nominations, including Adele (probably for her insightful songwriting, no?), Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West (another lyrical guy). Here are the highlight nominees:
