Grammys: Coldplay, Lil Wayne, Lead Nominations; Jonas Brothers Among Best New Artists

The Jonas Brothers

Finding a distinctly new nominations rhythm, the Grammys announced this year's nominees in an all-star concert countdown Wednesday, hosted by LL Cool J and Taylor Swift. The unlikely emcee matchup set the tone for many of the categories' diverse nominees, starting with Lil Wayne and Coldplay topping this year's nominations count with eight and seven nods, respectively.

Going head-to-head for top album of the year are Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III, Coldplay's Viva La Vida (both of which were top selling LPs in 2008) and Radiohead's In Rainbows. Joining them are Ne-Yo's Year of the Gentleman and Robert Plant's Raising Sand, on which he collaborated with bluegrass crooner Alison Krauss.

Krauss and Plant also overlap with the nominations for best record of the year, along with Adele, Coldplay, Leona "Bleeding Love" Lewis and M.I.A.
