The Grammy Award nominations are finally in, and Beyoncé leads the pack with 10, while Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga follow with eight and five respectively.
Beyoncé’s I Am Sasha Fierce was nominated for Album of the Year and, not surprisingly, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” received its own acknowledgement in the Song of the Year category.
Taylor Swift continues her whirlwind year with Fearless in the Album of the Year and Country Album categories, along with six other nominations.
“I started freaking out and jumping up and down,” Taylor told the Associated Press of her reaction to the nominations. “I honestly never would have predicted this, eight nominations – I’m ecstatic, and blown away and so so thankful.”
The Black Eyed Peas, Kings of Leon and Kelly Clarkson also made the list.
