Justin Timberlake was the biggest snub and Sara Bareilles was the biggest surprise in the top categories of the nominees for the 56th annual Grammy Awards, which were announced Friday night in conjunction with a concert special televised from Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.
Timberlake was expected to make the cut for album of the year for his hit comeback The 20/20 Experience, and was also a likely contender for both record and song of the year for "Mirrors," but was shut out of all of those categories.
Perhaps Timberlake's decision to release a second part of The 20/20 Experience in September backfired on him. With both installments counting as one album, he might have diluted the strength of the first half with the voters.

The song of the summer – Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" – was a no-brainer for a record of the year nod when the 2014 Grammy nominations were announced Friday night during a live concert at the Nokia Theater in L.A.
But Miley Cyrus, whose headline-making songs "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" were eligible, was shut out of the major categories.
Jay-Z leads the pack with nine nominations, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis scored seven apiece while newcomer Lorde received four.

On Nov. 19, 1990, the pop duo Milli Vanilli was stripped of their Grammy Award. The pair had won the title of Best New Artist after their debut album, Girl You Know It's True, became a mega-hit with singles "Girl You Know It's True" and "Blame It On The Rain" topping charts around the globe. Unfortunately, it soon came to light that the band's photogenic frontmen, Robert Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan, weren't the singers heard on the tracks. German producer and songwriter Frank Farian had recorded the album using studio musicians, then recruited the dancers/models known as Rob and Fab to be the faces of the band – no singing required.

Adele could have done without one particular well-wisher at Sunday's Grammy Awards – a Ukrainian TV presenter who crashed the stage during her win and was later jailed for trespassing.
Vitalii Sediuk spent the night behind bars and faces a court date in March after somehow evading security and entering the Staples Center without a ticket or any credentials, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
When Adele, 24, won best pop solo performance for "Set Fire to the Rain," Sediuk appeared on stage and could be heard saying, "I love you, Adele," before presenter Jennifer Lopez gave him a stern look and gestured him offstage.

While the northeast braved a midwinter blizzard, the West Coast was feeling the heat – and we're not just talking about the comparatively warmer weather.
With the Grammy Awards on the horizon, the most famous faces of the industry were in their finest form Saturday to celebrate music's biggest night.
John Mayer and Katy Perry took their date night up a notch at Clive Davis and The Recording Academy's Annual Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where they were spotted holding hands while Patti Smith performed. The couple was color-coordinated: he was in a white dinner jacket and black bow tie, and she wore a white designer dress.

Grammy weekend got off on a bumpy start for Chris Brown.
The best urban contemporary album nominee walked away uninjured after crashing his black Porsche into a wall during a paparazzi chase.
Beverly Hills police tell PEOPLE the accident occurred Saturday around noon when Brown, 23, lost control of his vehicle while driving to an L.A. charity event.
After Brown was reportedly cut off by photographers, "the occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle," Brown's rep said in a statement, via Entertainment Weekly. "In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley, at which point he was cut off by two additional vehicles."

When it comes to Sunday night's Grammy Awards, it's Frank Ocean's world and the rest of the nominees are just swimming in it.
With six nominations for his album Channel Orange total, the neo-soul sensation will go head-to-head with what are essentially four rock acts for album of the year.
But none of them rocked Channel Orange's artistic vision, with its intricately woven soundscapes and storytelling.

It may have been a tribute to Bruce Springsteen but Katy Perry seemed to be the main attraction for some at Friday's MusiCares Person of the Year tribute at the Los Angeles Convention Center before Sunday's Grammy Awards.
The singer, who arrived at the charity event which raises money for musicians in need sans beau John Mayer, was interrupted by two young fans who asked to take a picture with her as she was talking to director J.J. Abrams. But that wasn't all: the pop star, who later hung out with Elton John, was approached by even more fans in the lobby at the show.
