Grammy Awards 2013: Check out the list of nominations

02/10/2013 by OnTheRedCarpet.com Staff

Update 2/10: Check out the full list of winners from the ceremony here.

Kanye West, Jay-Z, FUN., Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean and Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys are the top contenders for the 2013 Grammy Awards, earning six nods each.

Amy Winehouse, who died in 2011, earned a posthumous nomination -- Nas' duet with her, "Cherry Wine," is up for the award for Best Rap / Sung Collaboration. Other nominees included Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Carly Rae Jepsen.

In what many consumers consider shocking, popular teen pop star Justin Bieber and legendary crooner Lionel Richie, who released a country album earlier this year, did not earn any nods this year.

The nominations were announced on Wednesday, December 5, by the Recording Academy and on CBS during the "The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! -- Countdown To Music's Biggest Night" live special on Wednesday. The event was hosted by LL Cool J and Taylor Swift, who earned three nominations of her own.

The network will air a live broadcast of 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which take place on Feb. 10, 2013 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. LL Cool J is hosting the ceremony for the second time. Check out the list of nominees below.
