52nd Annual Grammy Awards nominees unveiled

Grammy Awards

The 52nd Annual Grammys are upon us and the nominee announcements reveal a slew of names we’re all familiar with by now. Artists such as Beyonce (10 nominations), Taylor Swift (8), and Kanye West (6) will garner much of the spotlight at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, inadvertently recreating this year’s VMAs. Still, a few of the elder statesmen managed to sneak in there. Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and even Hall & Oates will each have a chance to walk away with a gilded gramophone. Will the Recording Academy recognize “Sara Smile” after all these years? Who will emerge with the most Grammys between Beyonce, Kanye, and Taylor? Tune in January 31, 2010 on CBS at 8/7 C to find out.
