While the concert featured musical performances from Fun. and Janelle Monae, Maroon 5, Ne-Yo, The Band Perry, and the Who with two-time Grammy Winner LL Cool J and six-time Grammy Winner Taylor Swift as co-host of one-hour concert special, it was also marked as the biggest night of Frank Ocean, Fun., Mumford & Sons, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Dan Auerbach for leading with 6 Grammy nominations each.

Fun. leads all general field as their collaboration with Janelle Monáe, We are Young, gets nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, Some Nights for Album of the Year, and Fun. itself for Best New Artist. While Frank Ocean competes right after them with 3 nominations on the race of Best New Artist, Record of the Year for Thinkin Bout You, and Channel Orange as Album of the Year nominee.

‘The World is Listening’ as this year theme unintentionally marked as Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5’s come back. Yeah, Clarkson is getting stronger with 4 nominations as her fifth studio album, Stronger, gets nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and the second single of the album, Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You), secured this year’s Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance nominations. While Maroon 5 locked 2 nominations including Best Pop Vocal album for Overexposed and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their works with Wiz Khalifa on Payphone.

Last year Grammy biggest winner Adele returns this year as Best Pop Solo Performance nominee with her Live Version of Set Fire to the Rain from Live at the Royal Albert Hall beats Katy Perry’s Wide Awake, Rihanna’s Where Have You Been, and The Billboard’s Rising Star 2012 Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe. Well, talking about Carly Rae Jepsen, She unfortunately must be snubbed from this year’s Best New Artist nomination, but the good news is her 2012 massive single, Call Me Maybe brings the Canadian 26 year-old singer her first 2 Grammy nominations, not only for Best Pop Solo Performance but also Song of the Year. Congratulation, Jepsen!

  2. The award was discontinued in 2012 in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. From 2012, all solo performances in the pop category (male, female, and instrumental) were shifted to the newly formed Best Pop Solo Performance category.
