Jay Z tops Grammy list with 9 nominations, Kanye also tapped

The Grammy nominations were done in prime-time style on Friday, with an hour-long reveal show that featured appearances by Lorde, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke (natch). Jay Z got the most nods, with nine nominations. No best new artist for Lorde, but there was a makeup call with a Best Record slot. The full list is here. Grammy Awards will be presented Jan. 26.

In the meantime, get your YouTube groove on with some of the nominees:


BEST RAP SONG (extremely NSFW lyrics, so don’t click play if you’ll be offended)

Chicago’s Kanye West earned a couple of tallies in nominations. Yeezus pulled in one for “New Slaves” and Best Rap Album for the eponymous Yeezus.
