Congrats to them all!!

Kanye West, Amy Winehouse top Grammy nominations
It’s been a tough year for both performers, but Kanye West and Amy Winehouse came out on top at Thursday’s press conference announcing the nominees for the 50th Annual Grammy Awards.
West leads the pack with eight nominations and Winehouse is up for six. Following close behind are the Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and T-Pain, who earned five nods apiece. Bruce Springsteen, Akon, Dierks Bentley, Chris Daughtry, Feist, Tim McGraw, John Newton, Ne-Yo and Riahana each scored four.
The nominations reflect one of the Grammys’ most diverse years ever, with the Album of the Year category alone representing country, hip-hop, jazz, pop and rock genres. Those vying for the honor are Foo Fighters (“Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace”), Vince Gill (“These Days”), Herbie Hancock (“River: The Joni Letters”), Kanye West (“Graduation”) and Amy Winehouse (“Back to Black”).
Winehouse is also competing for Record of the Year, with her hit “Rehab” up against Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable,” Foo Fighters’ “The Pretender,” Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around … Comes Around” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” featuring Jay-Z.
The “Rehab” singer has her eye on the Best New Artist trophy, as well, with Feist, Ledisi, Paramore and Tylor Swift rounding out the competition.
A new category has been added for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album, and the nods go to Geno Delafose & French Rockin’ Boogie, Lisa Haley, Lost Bayou Ramblers, Pine Leaf Boys, Racines, Roddie Romero and the Hub City All-Stars, and Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience.
The Grammy Awards will be handed out Feb. 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and the ceremony will air on CBS-TV.
