Beyonce Snags Ten Nominations, while Taylor Swift is Close Behind Her

| December 3, 2009 | 0 Comments


It’s no surprise Beyonce was going to grab a few nominations but the Diva surprisingly received ten nods while 19 year old Taylor Swift received a total of eight. I don’t believe anyone her age has ever received that many award nominations from the Grammys so clearly she will walk away with a few. Akon’s artist Lady Gaga was also nominated for a total of five with “Best Album” nomination for her debut CD “The Fame”.

This has to be a huge day for her manager Troy Carter who has come a long way from the Ruff Ryder days. Troy was also responsible for guiding the successful career of rapper/actress Eve so we at HHE salute you Troy Carter…a job well done.

Since most of these diva’s are nominated in the same category there’s sure to be a few upsets…Let’s just hope Kanye West don’t act a fool when the winners are announced on January 31st in Los Angeles.

Rapper Drake

Rapper Drake is on a roll as well as he has also received a nomination for best solo performance for the song “Best I Ever Had” He has some tough competition in that category because he is going up against Eminem, Jay Z, Kid Cudi and Mos Def. The complete list of the nominees is below. Check back soon as we are going to share with you are predictions for the winners of this year’s Grammy Awards.
