Beyonce and Taylor Swift lead Grammy nominations

Thursday December 3, 2009

It looks like Beyonce and Taylor Swift will steal the show at this year's Grammy Awards.

While the Single Ladies singer received a whopping ten nominations, country-pop sensation Taylor gathered eight.

The two artists were competing for the same award at this year's MTV awards, too.

Taylor's win turned into one of the most infamous moments in recent music history when Kanye West caused controversy with his interruption.

"Don't worry, Taylor. Kanye West is not here," Smokey Robinson joked as he announced the nominations on Wednesday.

Also set to win big at the ceremony is Lady Gaga with five nods, and Black Eyed Peas with six.

The Grammys show, which takes place in LA's Staples Center where Michael Jackson's memorial was held in August, will be on January 31 next year.
