Lil Wayne, nominated for eight Grammy Awards, will vie with British band Coldplay, which earned seven nominations, for the prestigious album of the year honors. For the first time, the Grammy nominations were announced on primetime TV as part of a special concert featuring performances by Christina Aguilera, John Mayer, and Mariah Carey, who opened with a seasonal run through "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, and Kanye West were the other top Grammy nominees—each with six nods. Radiohead was nominated for five awards, as were Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. CBS will broadcast the 51st Grammy Awards live from Los Angeles' Staples Center on February 8.
