Social media reigns supreme! Or at least it does when it comes to the 2015 Grammy nomination announcements. All day long, a constant stream of contenders have been posted to the official Grammy Twitter account.

More so than ever this year, the social media savvy singers and bands separated from the pack. While some iconic stars remained strangely mum — not a peep as of this writing from Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, or Beyonce on either Twitter or Instagram — others dove right in.

Anyone can write a sincere “Thank you!!!1!” but a few went above and beyond. Whether hashtagging their hearts out, using emojis, or just a fun turn of phrase, these nominees showed off their personalities…which means they’ve already won the award for Social Media Navigation.
