2013 Grammys: Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Gotye, Taylor Swift among nominees

CBSOn Wednesday night, CBS aired its annual Grammy nominations show, which is something that is in some ways ridiculous but also entertaining. Why do you need an awards show for an awards show? At least everyone involved is still interested in turning into as great of a show as possible, in between hosts Taylor Swift and LL Cool J and some very entertaining ways in which some of the nominees were announced.

We’re not really much of a music site, so we are instead going to give you some insight about the show itself rather than trying to rank any of the nominees. Be sure to check back throughout the show, as we are going to have this list constantly updated.
