Nominees & Fascinatees of 08-09

Nominations for the 51st Annual Grammy Awards were announced yesterday with Lil Wayne and Coldplay leading the way and changing up the prospective of the very conservative Grammy show and nominees. It thinks it's amazing to see the change of where we were, 50 years ago to were we are now.

Lil Wayne topped the list with eight nominations, Coldplay garners seven, and Jay-Z, Ne-Yo and Kanye West each earn six. Alison Krauss, John Mayer, Robert Plant, Radiohead and Jazmine Sullivan receive five each, and Adele, Danger Mouse, Eagles, Lupe Fiasco, George Strait, and T.I. each have four nominations.

Yeah, I want to know how Palin and Limbaugh made the list. Shit, and Tom Cruise too for that matter. He's done nothing this year.
