The 2014 Grammy Awards | NOMINEES

 

So, the 2014 Grammy Award Nomination Concert went down tonight on CBS. And much to our surprise, the Big 4 categories are really top 40 pop oriented. It looks the either the Grammy’s are just going along with Chart positions, or they’re trying to cater to a younger TV audience now, because the nominees are almost what you’d expect from MTV or the AMA’s. Jay Z leads the pack of nominees with 9 nominations, while Justin Timberlake and Kendrick Lamar have 7 nominations each. Drake has 5 nominations, and Tamar Braxton has 3 nominations. Notable snubs are Ciara’s “Body Party”, Janelle Monae’s The Electric Lady album, and J. Cole’s Born Sinner. The award show is set to take place on January 26th. Check out the full list of nominees below:
