]]>Katy Perry was on hand to perform…. and to comment after receiving her Album of the Year nomination. “It’s like no other awards show because I feel like you’re being recognized by your peers, so when they nominate you, it’s kind of like a win,” she says. “But if I win, I won’t say that.” Eminem received the most nominations with 10. Behind him, Bruno Mars got 7 and Jay-Z, Lady Antebellum and Lady Gaga each received six nominations. Craig Ferguson was floored by his first nomination in the Spoken Word category – he tweeted, “I just got nominated for a damn Grammy.
