2012 Grammy nominations Surprises & Snubs: Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Bon Iver
What's up with the Skrillex nominations? How did Drake make the list?
Two nominations, in lesser categories. "4" was released inside the eligibility period, but apparently voters didn't dig on "Run the World(Girls)," "Countdown" or "Best Thing I Never Had." Aw, does this mean no Grammy show performance, the first time in, like, forever? (Bey, granted, will have her bey-bay around then, to be fair.)
Hubby Jay-Z got four nods, for his collab with nominations leader Kanye West on "Watch the Throne," for Best Rap Song and Performance ("Otis"), Best Rap Album and a packaging nod. -KH
