Beyonce Leads Grammy Nominations

With Taylor Swift close behind…

Beyonce has been nominated for 10 awards at this year’s Grammys including album of the year, song of the year and record of the year.

Taylor Swift is up for eight gongs at the ceremony- which takes place on January 31 next year.
 
Maxwell, Kanye West and Black Eyed Peas are all nominated in six categories, while Jay-Z and Lady GaGa got five.
 
 
The lists were announced at an event in LA where Katy Perry performed and stars including LL Cool J and Ringo Starr appeared.
 
Brits nominated include The Ting Tings, Coldplay and Eric Clapton.
 
However compared to last year- when Adele, Coldplay, Duffy and M.I.A were all up for multiple awards- there are few stars from the UK up for the awards.
