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.

They've conquered the music world, but Jay Z and Beyoncé are now embarking on a health-inspired challenge – going vegan for 22 days.
"On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!" the music mogul wrote on his Life + Times website. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought."
He cited the numerical serendipity of his eating quest and noted he was supported on his journey by a vegan pal, Marc Borges, founder of the 22 Days nutrition program, which touts "optimum wellness through conscious nutrition."

Jay Z is on to the next one. The rapper, mogul and King to Beyoncé's Queen Bey, turned 44 on Wednesday.
There is bound to be a glamorous celebration, filled with gorgeous people and fare catering to Jay Z's new vegan diet, but we are more concerned about the mystery that surrounds this man. How is it that Jay Z is 44 when he still looks 28?

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, also known as the unstoppable publicity machine called Kimye, released their newest creation to the masses Tuesday on Ellen. West swaggered onto the daytime talk show to premiere his new music video for "Bound 2," which also serves as an instructional clip on how not to ride a motorcycle. While the sunsets and horses are nice, the video's standout feature is Kardashian. The bare, blond and buxom reality star is shown body-rolling her way across West's chopper, and in turn, onto everyone's social feeds.
