The 54th Annual Grammy Awards 2012: Nominations List

6 April 2011, The Recording Academy sebagai pihak penyelenggara Grammy Awards di setiap tahunnya telah membuat sebuah keputusan besar untuk melakukan restrukturisasi kategori. Terhitung sejak penyelenggaraan tahun 2012 ini, Grammy sebagai ajang pemberian apresiasi tertinggi bagi dunia musik ini memutuskan untuk hanya memberikan penghargaan dalam 78 kategori, yang berarti bahwa sebanyak 31 kategori dipangkas dari jumlah total 109 pada tahun lalu. Restrukturisasi ini salah satunya dilakukan pada kategori yang pada tahun-tahun sebelumnya diberikan masing-masing kepada penyanyi solo pria dan wanita untuk kemudian dilebur hanya menjadi penyanyi solo saja di setiap genrenya. Yah, hal inilah yang kini dirasa akan membuat persaingan para nomine mendapatkan Grammy ke-54 ini menjadi lebih ketat dan begitu berat.

Dan sebelum penyelenggaraan malam puncak yang akan diselenggaran pada 12 Februari 2012 mendatang, Grammy telah membeberkan daftar lengkap nominasi di semua kategori pada The Grammy Nominations Concert Live! 30 November 2011 lalu. Pada acara yang didukung oleh penampilan Rihanna, Usher, The Band Perry, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Ludacris, Lupe Fiasco, Sugarland, Jason Aldean, LL. Cool J., dan Lady Gaga tersebut terungkap bahwa Kanye West menjadi yang paling banyak diunggulkan dengan memboyong 7 nominasi termasuk didalamnya Song of the Year untuk lagu All of the Lights. Adele, Bruno Mars dan Foo Fighters mengekor tepat di belakang perolehan nominasi Kanye West  dengan 6 nominasi dimana ketiganya harus bersaing untuk mendapatkan gelar Album of the Year melalui 21, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, dan Wasting Light.

Namun sepertinya kejayaan Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Beyoncé di Grammy dua tahun terakhir bukanlah jaminan mereka akan berjaya tahun ini. Speak Now, Own the Night, dan 4 yang dirilis dalam periode penjurian Grammy tahun ini pada 1 Oktober 2010 hingga 30 September 2011 tidak mampu menembus kategori general seperti apa yang telah dicapai oleh Fearless, Need You Now, serta I Am… Sasha Fierce. Melalui Own The Night, Lady Antebellum tahun ini hanya mampu mengoleksi 1 nominasi yaitu pada Best Country Album yang sekaligus bersaing dengan Speak Now dari Taylor Swift. Best Country Song dan Best Country Solo Performance untuk Mean adalah dua nominasi lain yang berhasil dikantongi Swift tahun ini. Dan nasib naas harus dialami Beyoncé dimana album terakhirnya, 4, hanya mampu memberikannya 2 nominasi melalui Party atas kolaborasinya bersama André  3000 untuk Best Rap/Sung Collaboration dan I Was Here yang memberikan nominasi Producer of the Year, Non-Clasical kepada sang produser, Ryan Tedder.
