Adele, Kanye, Bruno Mars and Foo Fighters Lead Grammy Nominations

The Grammy nominations were announced on Wednesday, and leading the lineup of nominated artists was Kanye West with a total of seven nominations, primarily for the song, “All of the Lights.” His album was left off of best album contention, and “Lights” was not nominated for Record of the Year.

Following close behind Kanye are Adele, Bruno Mars and Foo Fighters, each competing for album, record of the year. All artists earned six nominations each.

Also up for top album honors, aside from Adele’s “21″ and Mars’ “Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” is Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and Rihanna’s “Loud.”

Surprising newcomer to the nominations list is Bon Iver, an indie-folk singer who appeared on much of Kanye West’s latest album. Iver is up for Record of the Year for “Holocene,” which also snagged a nomination for Song of the Year, and is competing against Nicki Minaj, Skrillex, J. Cole and The Band Perry for Best New Artist.

The 54th Grammys will be held Feb. 12 in Los Angeles on CBS.
