2013 Grammy Awards Full List of Nominations

Announcing The 2013 Grammy Award Nominations

Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaborative album Watch The Throne helped the duo score six Grammy nods each this year, but they've got some pretty stiff competition; Frank Ocean, fun., Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys also picked up six nominations apiece. The nominee love was pretty spread out overall, though: ubiquitous songs like "Call Me Maybe" and Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" got some love — three nominations for Gotye, including record of the year! — as did perennial favourite artists like Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson.

The Grammys will air on Feb. 10, but check out some of the biggest categories when you keep reading.
