Rundown of that Grammy Stuff

The GRAMMY nominations have been announced so you know what that means: it's time to analyze the numbers! This year, it's the hip hop stars that rule. Jay-Z, who's already won 21 GRAMMYs, leads the pack with eight nominations, followed by Kendrick Lamar with seven, and Bruno Mars with six. 

The big categories of the night, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year feature those three artists going up against he likes of Lorde, Logic, Childish Gambino, and the team behind "Despacito," Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber. 

Meanwhile the rock categories are paying respect to two late artists: Leonard Cohen and Chris Cornell, both of who are up for the Best Rock Performance.
