2008 Grammy Nominations Announced

Nominations this time around seem to have come from left field with Kanye West leading with 8 nods, and Amy Winehouse following with 6. Considering the downs in their lives right now, let's hope that these nominations will be a little pick-me-up.

Here are the lists of the top four nominee lists...

Record of the Year

by Beyonce

The Pretender by Foo Fighters

Umbrella by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z

What Goes Around ... Comes Around by Justin Timberlake

Rehab by Amy Winehouse

Song of the Year

Before He Cheats by Josh Kear & Chris Tompkins (Carrie Underwood)

Hey There Delilah by Tom Higgenson (Plain White T's)

Like a Star by Corinne Bailey Rae

Rehab by Amy Winehouse

Umbrella by Shawn Carter, Kuk Harrell, Terius "Dream" Nash & Christopher Stewart (Rihanna featuring Jay-Z)

Best Album

Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace by Foo Fighters


These Days by Vince Gill


River: The Joni Letters by Herbie Hancock


Graduation by Kanye West


Back to Black by Amy Winehouse

Now onto something no one expected. An all girl category? 2008's new artist nominees are all of the female persuasion (Remember Hayley Williams is Paramore's frontgirl). Do we see a little cat fight in the making?

Best New Artist




Taylor Swift

Amy Winehouse
