This year's Grammy nominations reflect the state of the music industry this year - lots of big single hits - few big hit albums.
Unlike last year, when Adele's "21" was the big album of the year and she got a lot of nods, this year, the wealth was spread among 6 acts, who ended up with 6 nominations each.
The half-dozen artists with the half dozen nods are .fun, Frank Ocean, Dan Aurebach of The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, as well as rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z. Song of the year nominees were Ed Sheeran's "The A Team," Miguel's "Adorn," Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" and fun.'s "We Are Young."
Miguel, The Black Keys and Chick Corea all have five nominations. Nas is among three artists with our nods. And 16 artists have three nods - among them Gotye, Drake, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson and Jack White.
Winners will be announced on February 10 at a live ceremony set for the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
