    Anyone think this is the grammy's way of making it up to him for the Macklemoore debacle? Either way he deserves it. Hope he wins album of the year...

    Who votes to determine the winner of each category tho? It's not the fans is it?

    Will assume Taylor Swift sweeps all the categories she's in, Drake or Nicki gets best rap album nod simply as a kick to the pants of Kendrick, and Fetty Wap for Best Rap song

    I tell you what.... Alabama Shakes should rack up. I really believe they had the album of year. but if Kendrick came away with it I will not be disappointed as far as it being a major look for hip-hop.

    Shouts to that boy Cole being nominated... To bad its too late for him to care. Hope he stays true and pays the nomination no mind, but he gotta feel some type of way after he was snubbed.

    Whens the last time the grammys had no Jay-Z tho?? Kanye barely made it in thanks to that one Big Sean nod.

    Hov hasn't released anything recently though has he? Unless he would've gotten nominated for the song he had with JT from (or around the time) of MCHG

    yea Hov's absence is cuz he didnt release anything. Its just surprising that over a full year he didnt do anything musically.

    Cant say i recall him not appearing at all in awhile... even when he was retired.

    and i didnt even realize Kanye had an All Day nomination... wow.

    not really he had a solid well rounded album/movement this year

    and he is loved by our era's "Golden Girl" who happens to have a major single with him thats nominated as well

    if I was him I would say I will attend under 1 condition.... I get to perform in the middle or semi end of the show (peak time for a award show) and have full control over my performance, set, and playlist

    that way he can use the platform to perform Alright in a powerful manner. Maybe bring out Cole to perform his verse too
