Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's comeback came full circle Thursday, December 8 as she was nominated for eight Grammys, including Album of the Year for "The Emancipation of Mimi" and Song and Record of the Year for her torch ballad, "We Belong Together."

Carey's eight nominations tied John Legend and Kanye West. Soul crooner Legend's nominations included Best New Artist, while his mentor West is up for Album of the Year for "Late Registration" and Song of the Year for "Gold Digger."

Other multiple nominees included 50 Cent, Gwen Stefani, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce and Stevie Wonder. Springsteen was among the surprises. His "Devils & Dust" was nominated for Song of the Year, along with Rascal Flatts' "Bless the Broken Road," John Legend's "Ordinary People," Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" and U2's "Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own."

U2, nominated for five awards, was also represented in the Album of the Year category for "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb." Besides Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" and West's "Late Registration," other nominees in the category were Gwen Stefani for "Love. Angel. Music. Baby" and Paul McCartney's "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard."

In the race for Record of the Year, Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" will go up against "Feel Good Inc." by Gorillaz featuring De La Soul, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" by Green Day, "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani and "Gold Digger" by Kanye West Featuring Jamie Foxx.

The nominees for Best New Artist are Ciara, Fall Out Boy, Keane, John Legend and Sugarland. The 48th Annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to be presented in a live CBS telecast on Wednesday, February 8 from Los Angeles.

The Grammy Nominee List is quite extensive. Posting all the nominations may take some time. For those that prefer to read the complete list now, click on the link: Grammy Nominations.

Carey, West Dominate Grammy Awards

First Mimi was emancipated; now Mariah Carey is being celebrated. Carey, who just a couple of years ago was considered a dimming star, was reaffirmed as one of music's brightest Thursday, December 8 as she was nominated for eight Grammy awards, including Album of the Year for "The Emancipation of Mimi."

Vanguard rapper/producer Kanye West equaled Carey's accomplishment with eight nominations, as did his protege, John Legend. Other multiple nominees included Irish rockers U2, Bruce 'The Boss' Springsteen and 'Hollaback Girl' Gwen Stefani.

Critics and fans have focused on Carey's amazing career turnaround, but she doesn't like to call it a comeback. Instead, the 35-year-old diva, who received her only Grammys in 1991 for best new artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance, sees her newfound success as a validation of the kind of music she's wanted to do all along.

Mariah Carey

"A lot of times in my career, I was never allowed to release my favorite songs as the singles. Sometimes they would be my favorite songs, but sometimes no," Carey told The Associated Press after the nominations were announced. "This is like an album of my favorite songs, and so that's what feels great, because as an artist, you want people to hear your best work."

Besides Album of the Year, Carey's other nominations included Record and Song of the Year for the heartbreak ballad, "We Belong Together," and Best Female Pop Vocal for the club hit, "It's Like That."

West, who last year led all nominees with ten including Album of the Year, was nominated in that category again this year for "Late Registration." His Ray Charles-inspired hit, "Gold Digger," was nominated for Record of the Year and he also was cited for being a producer on Carey's album.

Kanye West

West could also revel in the good fortune of Legend, whose nominations included Best New Artist, along with Ciara, Fall Out Boy, Sugarland and Keane. U2 received five nominations, including Album of the Year for the best-selling "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb" and Song of the Year for "Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own."

Paul McCartney was also nominated in the Album of the Year category for "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard." The album garnered the former Beatle his best reviews in decades; it also marked his first Grammy nomination in 26 years.

The other Album of the Year nominee was Gwen Stefani for her kitschy, '80s tribute, "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." disc. The album marked the solo debut of the No Doubt frontwoman and budding fashion designer.

Gwen Stefani

It sold more than three million copies and included one of the biggest songs of the year, the nonsensical foot-stomper, "Hollaback Girl." That single also earned Stefani a nomination for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal performance; in all she had five.

"I think part of the success of the album is because it is so different from No Doubt," said Producer of the Year nominee Jimmy Jam, who along with partner Terry Lewis worked on "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." "I think on her own she probably made the album she would have made if she hadn't been the girl in the band and if she had been the girl of the '80s."

Besides Stefani, Carey and West, the other Record of the Year nominees were the Gorillaz featuring De La Soul for "Feel Good Inc." and Green Day for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams." Also nominated for five Grammys were Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys and Springsteen, whose song "Devils & Dust" is up for Song of the Year.

Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder, who put out his first album in 10 years this fall, "A Time to Love," got six nominations, as did Beyonce, The Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.am and 50 Cent, who had the year's best-selling disc with "The Massacre."

Carey's album was the No. 2 selling album of the year with more than 4 million copies. Given her previous blockbuster sales, the figure might not come as a surprise. But Carey seemed to have lost her multiplatinum touch over the last few years. She endured the bomb movie and soundtrack, "Glitter" in 2001, and a 2002 follow-up album, "Charmbracelet," was a slow seller.

Beyonce

"The Emancipation of Mimi" named for her alter-ego and nickname marked her return to multiplatinum greatness. Carey says the reason the album did so well was because she stayed true to her own musical intuition by delivering a strong R&B album instead of listening to the advice of others and going more pop.

"I feel like record companies were a little scared of urban music a couple of years back, and because I've always wanted to go further into that direction, I kind of got put in a box," a buoyant Carey said, chatting in the back seat of a car.

"I feel like now everyone is going to come around to understanding this is the music that is honestly the future and it's the past and present, so that in and of itself is a triumph. So, win or lose, I'm already grateful."

John Legend

Urban music was well represented in the Grammy nominations. Black music stars led the multiple nominees list, and Legend was the freshest face. His ballad "Ordinary People" was nominated for Song of the Year.

Though Legend did not have a hand in penning the tune, he was perhaps more excited over that nomination than his own. "To get that made my heart skip," he told the AP. "As a songwriter, it's a category I take very seriously."

The nominees for Best New Artist are Ciara, Fall Out Boy, Keane, John Legend and Sugarland. The 48th Annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to be presented in a live CBS telecast on Wednesday, February 8 from Los Angeles.

'American Idol' Wins Grammy Award

by Nekesa Mumbi Moody

Kelly Clarkson nervously accepts a Grammy for Best Female Pop

Vocal Performance

LOS ANGELES, California - Mariah Carey and U2 each won three Grammy awards, but Carey, a front-runner going into the ceremony, lost out in a high-profile category to "American Idol" champion Kelly Clarkson.

Carey still had a chance to triumph in the key races for album, record and song of the year, which were set to be announced near the end of the 3-1/2 hour televised ceremony. U2 also will compete for album and song of the year. Along with rapper Kanye West and R&B newcomer John Legend, Carey led the Grammy contenders with eight nominations each.

She snagged her three awards during the preliminary ceremony, which was not televised and took place in a venue adjacent to the Staples Center, where the main event began at 8 p.m. EST. West and Legend each picked up an early Grammy, and West also won the televised announcement of best rap album.

majors at the Grammy Awards Ceremony

In the first televised award, Carey had to watch as Clarkson surprisingly took the award for female pop vocal performance. A tearful Clarkson screeched a few thank-yous, but notably omitted any reference to "American Idol," the blockbuster Fox television show that propelled her to fame and a recording contract in 2002. Clarkson has distanced herself from the talent show as she tries to establish her own identity.

Carey, who had won only two Grammys to date in her career, was honored for female R&B vocal performance and best R&B song, both for the tune "We Belong Together," and for contemporary R&B album for her comeback release "The Emancipation of Mimi."

The only award Carey lost before the televised show began was for traditional R&B vocal performance, where Aretha Franklin won for "A House is Not a Home." This marked the 17th award of the "Queen of Soul's" career.

U2_gram.jpg

U2 performs before winning five Grammy Awards

U2 won the televised award for best rock album ("How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb"), having won two Grammys earlier in the evening. The group's career haul rose to 20, tied at No. 7 on the all-time list with bluegrass fiddler Alison Krauss, who also won three Grammys, including best country album.

U2's other wins were for rock performance by a duo or group with vocal ("Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own") and best rock song ("City of Blinding Lights"). The band also performed at the awards show, rocking the audience with the hit single "Vertigo" and then bringing on R&B singer Mary J. Blige for the ballad "One."

In addition to best rap album for "Late Registration," Kanye West won the rap song category for "Diamonds from Sierra Leone." John Legend took home the best R&B album award for "Get Lifted."

John Legend won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album

Other double winners included Motown icon Stevie Wonder, whose career tally rose to 24, still No. 5 on the all-time list. He won awards for male pop vocal performance ("From the Bottom of My Heart") and R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals ("So Amazing"). He shared the latter award with Beyonce Knowles of R&B group, Destiny's Child.

Rocker Bruce Springsteen, reggae star Damian Marley, electronica act the Chemical Brothers and gospel singer CeCe Winans also won a pair trophies each.

French classical conductor Pierre Boulez won his 26th Grammy, and now ranks as No. 3 on the all-time list of Grammy victors, pulling ahead of late Russian pianist Vladimir Horowitz, with whom he was tied. The only people ahead of him are late conductor Georg Solti with 31 wins, and producer Quincy Jones with 27.

Sir Paul McCartney rocked the Grammy Awards audience

Bluesman B.B. King won the 14th Grammy of his career, in the traditional blues album category for "80," an all-star collaboration that marked his 80th birthday.

While Martin Scorsese has famously yet to win an Academy Award, he did pick up his first Grammy, in his capacity as a director of the Bob Dylan documentary "No Direction Home," which won the category for long-form music video. Dylan himself does not share in the award since he had little involvement with the acclaimed project.
