The 52nd Annual Grammy nominations were announced on Wednesday night, I missed them because I was too busy watching GLEE, Modern Family and Cougar Town, but they have this thing called the internet, so I just looked the nominees up. Smart eh?

After reviewing the nominations, I’m happy to announce that the Canadians put in a solid effort!
Toronto rapper Drake picked up two nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance. Not bad for a guy that doesn’t even have an album out yet! Imagine next year!
Burnaby’s Michael Buble picked up a nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. He’s up against Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr, Liza Minnelli and Willie Nelson!!! Ummm…good luck!
Nickelback‘s (calm down, I still have to write about them) Burn It To The Ground was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance. I’m shocked that their song “Something in Your Mouth” was left out.
Music legend Neil Young is nominated for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance and Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package. Hey, it’s something.
Someone new to me, Melanie Fiona from Toronto, got nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her song “It Kills Me.” Sounds nice.
And lastly, Canadian Icon Michael J Fox picked up a Best Spoken Word Album nomination for the recording of his book, Always Looking Up.
I think that’s it, but if I missed any, PLEASE let me know!
Congrats to all the Canadian nominees!
I don’t know how I missed that Montreal’s Beast were nominated for Best Short Form Video for their fantastic Mr. Hurricane video!

Check out Melanie Fiona’s video for her Grammy nominated song, It Kills Me.
