Some good news for two people who haven't had the best of luck recently. The Grammy nominations were announced today and Kanye West and Amy Winehouse have both snagged multiple nods.
Kanye, who's been grieving since the unexpected loss of his mom last month, earned eight nominations, including album of the year and rap album of the year for Graduation, while Amy, who's just been in a mess of trouble, earned six, including album of the year for Back to Black, song of the year and record of the year for "Rehab", and best new artist. Battling Amy for record of the year are Beyonce ("Irreplaceable"), Foo Fighters ("The Pretender"), Rihanna ("Umbrella") and Justin Timberlake ("What Goes Around Comes Around"). And just a quick shout out to my boy Chris Daughtry, whose band, Daughtry, earned four nominations!!! The Grammys will air on Feb. 10 on CBS. Be there.
