Taylor Swift and LL Cool J announced the nominees for the 2013 Grammy awards. The Grammys Nominations Concert Live from Nashville which airs on CBS gave a lot of new names for major categories.
One big winner holding 6 nominations is Grammy freshman Frank Ocean. The front-runner for album of the year comes after the singer outed himself in an open letter telling the world that he was bi-sexual. His album, "Channel Orange" sold 390,000 units in 21 weeks and is now number 127 on the charts.
Another new face to hit the scene was R&B artist Miguel who got five nods and is a solo favorite to win. His writing capabilities proved worthy as his hit song "Adorn" climbs the charts. His sophomore album sold only 211,000 albums and may win in his R&B categories. Other artists like, rapper Nas, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Jay-Z are nominated for a few awards and may grace the stage for the prestigious award.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles' Staple Center on Feb 10th broadcasting on CBS. Will you be watching?
