Posted on Wed Dec 5, 2012 07:50 PM PDT


The 2013 Grammy nominees were announced in Nashville tonight, and Frank Ocean, Mumford & Sons, Kanye West, Jay-Z and The Black Keys led the way with six nods apiece.

Rihanna earned three nominations for "Talk That Talk," "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been," while beau Chris Brown earned one for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Fame.

Kelly Clarkson earned three nods, including Record of the Year (Stronger), Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance, and while Taylor Swift's 1.21 million-selling Red was released too late for album eligibility, she was still able to snag three noms for her hit single "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and her tune on The Hunger Games soundtrack, "Safe and Sound."

Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" picked up two nominations, including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, and country star Carrie Underwood picked up two nods as well.
