Grammy Nominations Are In!!!

The Grammy nominations were announced last night during a Grammy nomination ceremony (gettin’ all classy this year, I see) and to the surprise of no one, the queen, HBIC, fierce independent woman etc Beyonce SASHA FIERCE Knowles took the lead with ten noms.

Overall, I was pretty pleased with the list.  I was a little shocked by the amount of Black Eyed Peas love, but they put out some great party jams so I have no issues.  And apparently, since Gaga couldn’t be nominated for Best New Artist the Grammys compensated and put her in EVERY CATEGORY IMAGINABLE.  Which she deserves.  But what do you guys think?  Was anyone left off?  Anyone you think absolutely has no place on this list?

Either way a big congrats to all the nominees!!

Complete list after the jump!
