>> Hot photos from the live Grammy nominations concert 2010

>> Read Glenn Gamboa's recap of the show, including a list of nominees in all the top categories

10:00 p.m.: And it starts with my boo LL Cool J. I always hear "I Need Love" in my head when I see him.

10:02 p.m.: Ok I see Katy Perry is feeling the Christmas season with all the silver in her outfit, although she is singing her hit "California Girl." The combo doesn't go, but hey it's Katy.

10:03 p.m.: Cute way to kick off the show and I know she will def grab some nominations tonight.

10:05 p.m.: Bruno Mars is hitting the stage now. Yes!!!! Love him. Such a great talent. Looking real cool with the black shades on while he plays his guitar.

10:06 p.m.: He is singing "Just the Way You Are'" and the crowd is loving it. He is in the zone.

10:10 p.m: Selena Gomez and Dave Grohl are announcing the nominees for Song of the Year. There are some great songs in this line up including "Love the Way You Lie," by Eminem and Rihanna and "Nothing on You," by my boy B.o.B and Bruno Mars. (Don't worry I got yall with a complete list at the end of the show.)

10:14 p.m.: Commercials and more commercials. Blah blah blah...

10:15 p.m: Aww LL looks so excited to be hosting this show. Must be a highlight in his career.

10:19 p.m.: Haley Williams is about to present the nominations for best new artist. The competition looks stiff.  It includes Justin Bieber, Drake and Mumford and Sons.

10:21 p.m.: Justin Bieber tunes in from London and LL asks him "Why are you up so late?" He gave LL the "do you know who you are talking to," look.

10:22 p.m.: Country singer Miranda Lambert is performing. Not too familiar with her, but the crowd seems to love her. Although, I think they just act like they know any artist that takes the stage by screaming their heads off.

10:29 p.m.: What's the point of going back to the show just to have LL say "Stay tuned cause its going to be hot," and then go right back to a million commercials *puzzled face*

10:31 p.m.: Time for Bieber to do his thing all the way from London. He took the acoustic route with his performance and I'm loving it. Can this boy do wrong?

10:33 p.m.: As he sings "My Favorite Girls" the youngins in the audience look like they are about to have heart attacks.

10:34 p.m.: Wait his performance is over? I feel robbed.

10:35 p.m.: Now the legendary Stevie Wonder is about to announce the nominees for album of the year.

10:36 p.m.: Dang!!! Lady Gaga, Eminem, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum...my heart can't take it.

10:37 p.m.: Now LL is talking to Katy about being nominated for "Album of the Year," and she was seriously at a loss for words. Just say, "I'm thankful and happy."We don't pay you to think honey.

10:40 p.m.: Ummm why is Paula Abdul getting her own show? So I will make sure not to watch. I swear they will give anyone a show now-a-days.

10:43 p.m.: And Monica looks extra happy to have the camera on her as she sits with LL with a huge cheese smile on her face as he introduces B.o.B.

10:44 p.m.: B.o.B!!! This is the performance I was waiting for. "Nothing on You," was def a banger this year. This ATL boy did his thing this year. The preppy boy look is working for him too.

10:46 p.m.: Everytime I look at B.o.B I can't help, but laugh. Is that a bad thing? LOL And what is that thing hanging out of his back pocket???? So we carry around animals in our pants now?

10:48 p.m.: So this guy introducing the "Best Female Country Vocal Performance" face disturbs me. Why is it all screwed up like that? I wonder if he thinks its funny or that's just really how his face is.

10:50 p.m.: Now record of the year. They include "Nothing on You," "Forget You," "Empire State of Mind," and "Love the Way You Lie." Eminem really came back with a vengence this year. I think he will be going home with a few Grammy's next year.

10:55 p.m.: Miranda Lambert tells LL she is happy to be here to "represent for all her peeps," in country music. I really need some people to stop trying so hard to sound cool (shaking my head).

10:56 p.m.: And Bobby Ray takes the stage once again to end the show. I must say I respect that just about every artist that performed tonight played an instrument when doing their songs. Real talent is coming back people!!!!

10:57 p.m.: He is singing his new song "Don't Let Me Fall." This song is so real. Check out the video here

10:59 p.m.: And its a wrap for this show. Catch yall in February for the Grammy's awards.

Let us know what you thought about the show. Do you think the right artists were chosen?
