#HNNMusic Beyoncé, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell, Mali Music Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus all get #Grammy nominations

Grammy Nominations are out for the February 8th 2015 show. In a break from the recent tradition of announcing Grammy nominees during a primetime concert, the 2015 Grammy nominations are an all-day event this time around.

Leading the musical pack so far: British singer Sam Smith, 22, with five nominations - record of the year, best pop vocal album, best pop solo performance, song of the year and best new artist. His Stay With Me single has become a moster international success.The news started rolling on Friday's CBS This Morning as Pharrell Williams and Ed Sheeran announced four categories for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.They are also being released slowly on the Grammy Twitter account so more categories coming.
