Carey, West, Legend top Grammy noms
NEW YORK (AP) – Mariah Carey’s comeback came full circle Thursday as she was nominated for eight Grammys, including album of the year for The Emancipation of Mimi and song and record of the year for her torch ballad We Belong Together.
Carey’s eight nominations tied John Legend and Kanye West. Soul crooner Legend’s nominations included best new artist, while his mentor West is up for album of the year for Late Registration and song of the year for Gold Digger.
Other multiple nominees included 50 Cent, Gwen Stefani, U2 and Bruce Springsteen.
Springsteen was among the surprises – his Devils & Dust was nominated for song of the year, along with Rascal Flatts’ Bless the Broken Road, Legend’s Ordinary People, Carey’s We Belong Together and U2’s Sometimes You Can’t Make it On Your Own.
U2, nominated for five awards, was also represented in the album of the year category for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Besides Carey and West, other nominees in the category were Stefani for Love. Angel. Music. Baby and Paul McCartney’s Chaos and Creation in the Backyard.
Besides We Belong Together and Goldigger, record of the year nominees included the Gorillaz’ Feel Good Inc. featuring De La Soul, Green Day’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams and Stefani’s Hollaback Girl.
One of the big snubs: Coldplay, who’s “X&Y,” one of the year’s biggest albums with hits like “Fix You,” was shut out of the album, song and record of the year categories. But they were nominated for rock album of the year.
Montreal’s the Arcade Fire scored a nomination for best alternative music album for Funeral while rocker Neil Young received two nods: one for best rock album for Prairie Wind and best solo rock performance for The Painter.
Vancouvers Michael Buble received a nomination for best traditional pop album for his record Its Time.
Daniel Lanois, who was raised in Hamilton, Ont., was a double nominee in the categories of best pop instrumental performance and album.
The Grammys will be handed out in Los Angeles on Feb. 8.
