Lady Antebellum, “Need You Now”


Jewel, “Satisfied”

Miranda Lambert, “The House that Built Me”

LeAnn Rimes, “Swingin'”

Carrie Underwood, “Temporary Home”

Gretchen Wilson, “I'd Love to Be Your Last”

10:44 p.m. Does this B.o.B. performance of "Nothin' on You" mean it's up for record of the year?

10:38 p.m. More surprises -- Lady A instead of Miranda Lambert in Album of the Year. Another snub of Jay-Z in favor of Katy Perry(!) Oh, why?

10:35 p.m. Album of the year nominees:

Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs”

Eminem, “Recovery”

Lady Antebellum, “Need You Now”

Lady Gaga, “The Fame Monster”

Katy Perry, “Teenage Dream”

10:31 p.m. Justin Bieber's acoustic version of "Favorite Girl" should help his chances of getting taken seriously.

10:25 p.m. Miranda Lambert is set for a big night with "Only Prettier."

10:20 p.m. Wow. Sorry, Susan Boyle. Sometimes I don't give the Grammy folks enough credit for spotting talent like Florence and The Machine and Mumford and Sons or Esperanza Spalding. And here I thought B.o.B. and (yikes) Ke$ha might get nominations here. Shame on me.

10:19 p.m. Best new artist nominees:

Justin Bieber


Florence and The Machine

Mumford and Sons

Esperanza Spalding

10:16 p.m. Um, is Train's "Hey, Soul SIster" actually eligible for anything? It came out in August 2009.

10:12 p.m. Hmm. Jay-Z shut out of song of the year for "Empire State of Mind"? Gaga passed over for "Bad Romance"? Weird. Miranda Lambert's nom is a nice surprise, which could mean a big night for her. And Ray LaMontagne? Straight-up bonkers.

10:11 p.m. Song of the year nominees:

Ray LaMontagne, “Beg Steal or Borrow”

Cee Lo Green, “Forget You”

Eminem feat. Rihanna, “Love the Way You Lie”

Miranda Lambert, “The House That Built Me”

Lady Antebellum, “Need You Now”

10:05 p.m. Bruno Mars is doing an acoustic version of "Just the Way You Are." Unfortunately, he's not eligible for Best New Artist, though his singles can get some nominations.

10:01 pm Can Grammy voters take away Katy Perry's nominations because she's off-key in "California Gurls"? Wishful thinking, right?
