The 48th annual Grammy Awards nominations were announced today Gotham Hall in New York City. Mariah Carey, John Legend, and Kanye West lead the list of nominees with 8 nominations each. 50 Cent, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder and Black Eyed Peas member Wil.i.am follow with six nominations apiece.
Oh yeah, Kanye is up for album of the year (against Mariah, Paul McCartney, Gwen Stefani, and U2). Kanye said that if it doesn't win album of the year he's "gonna have a real problem" with that. I hope he loses just for being an ass. You can check out some pictures from the announcement ceremony below.
The 48th Annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS February 8, 2006.
