Kelly Clarkson, Stronger and Grammy-Nominated

The humble girl from Burleson, Texas with the booming voice is on top of the music world again as Kelly Clarkson was nominated for three Grammy Awards last night: Record of the Year, Pop Vocal Album, and Pop Solo Performance. Her single "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" was also nominated for Song of the Year. While she's already won two Grammy Awards, this is her first nomination in two of the top Grammy prizes, Record and Song of the Year. All of this is to say that I suddenly give a crap about this year's Grammy Awards.

And for Kelly? Well, this is just icing to the cake in a year where she sang at the Super Bowl, achieved another #1 radio hit, celebrated her 30th birthday, and more recently commemorated her 10th anniversary in the business by putting out a Greatest Hits album. It's still a relatively short career and one that has also been filled with as many highs as downs, but I'm glad she's getting much deserved dues from the industry. And how did she find out about her nominations? Well, her friends surprised her with the news as she woke up in London.

As for the rest of the Grammy nominations, it was practically a Boys Club with lots of love given out to fun., Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Mumford & Sons, and Jay-Z. For a complete list of nominations, click here.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
