2013 Grammy nominations: Did Daft Punk get lucky, and is Ed Sheeran now on the A-Team?

Grammys -Tonight marked the 2013 Grammy Nomination Show on CBS, and of course, we know that there is one part of this out there that music enthusiasts are especially excited to see: The actual nominees. We’re not a music site, so we won’t sit here and give you too much of a blow-by-blow analysis of any of these. (We will, however comment on LL Cool J being very annoying throughout the variety of the broadcast.)

There was also some performances that took place over the course of the hour-long show, and you can see some of them with our take over here. These are just the nominations announced during the show; you can find more at the organization’s official site.
