Nominations for the 51st Annual Grammy® Awards were announced by the Recording Academy on Wednesday, December 4, and reflected a diverse year in music. Lil Wayne, Coldplay, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo and Kanye topped the nominations; Coldplay, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and Radiohead were nominated for Album of the Year; and Adele, Duffy, Jonas Brothers, Lady Antebellum and Jazmine Sullivan were named nominees for Best New Artist.

The nominees were announced in a one-hour special broadcast live from the NOKIA Theatre at L.A LIVE, and featured past Grammy winners and nominees performing songs from the Grammy Hall of Fame in celebration of the grand opening of the Grammy Museum.

"The GRAMMY Awards process once again has yielded a comprehensive, diverse and eclectic group of excellent nominees across multiple genres," said Neil Portnow, president/CEO of The Recording Academy. "This year's nominations are truly reflective of the talented community of artists and creators who represent some of the highest levels of musical excellence. Coupled with our first prime-time nominations special, featuring stellar performances by past GRAMMY winners and nominees, we're off to an incredible start on the road to Music's Biggest Night and the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards in February."
