Listen to a selection of nominees for the Grammy Awards.

You may think the Grammy Award is all about D’Angelo and Taylor Swift and people you may never have heard about (or indeed care about), but wait there is more! Indeed the 83 different nomination categories are as wide as Best Album notes, Best Historical Album, Best Spoken Word Album, Best improvised Jazz Solo and Best Surround Sound Album.
