CBS decided they needed to pimp out LL Cool J some more, as he hosted the nominations special for the 2014 Grammy Awards. There were performances from MacklemoreTaylor Swift and Robin Thicke, all nominees of course. I can’t say there were any big snubs, but i’m sure some people’s fans are mad anyways. Jay Z lead the nominations with nine, and was followed closely behind by the likes of Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar with seven. The ladies weren’t completely shut out, Rihanna and Katy Perry both got some Grammy love.
