Singer Nate Ruess of fun. isn't making any assumptions about the Grammy nominations.
When asked about their chances, Ruess knocked on a wood table for luck and said, "I'm not even going to talk about it." Fun. is a Best New Artist contender, along with Frank Ocean, Gotye, Carly Rae Jepsen, One Direction and Hunter Hayes.
Potential album of the year nominees include "Babel" by Mumford and Sons, "Mylo Xyloto" by Coldplay, "El Camino" by The Black Keys and Rihanna's "Talk That Talk." Taylor Swift's "Red" album came out too late to be eligible, but "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" came out before then, so the single could be a Record of the Year contender.
The Grammy nominations will be announced tonight.
