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.

Playing a mom in her new film The Truth About Emanuel stirred up some maternal instincts for Jessica Biel.
"Every woman has some kind of intuition of how they'd interact with a child," she told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of the film on Wednesday.
"I feel comfortable around kids, so I was kind of rolling with that idea," the actress admits.
Wearing a two-piece lace skirt and cropped top by Giambattista Valli topped with a leather jacket, Biel, 31, – who married Justin Timberlake in a romantic Italian ceremony in October 2012 – says she's open to having kids of her own, but she hasn't put a deadline on it.

When it came to the winners, there wasn't much controversy for the American Music Awards, which handed out trophies to Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Macklemore.
But as anyone watching the show will tell you, the actual awards ended up taking a backseat to the night's many performers, who incited Twitter trends and plenty of head-scratching as the evening wore on.
In case you were watching The Walking Dead or Sunday Night Football, here's what had us asking, "What just happened?"

Sunday night's American Music Awards felt like the ultimate concert, complete with performances by Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus and more.
Oh, and many a prize was won.
No surprise here: Taylor Swift took home the night's top honor, artist of the year, after Cyrus hit the stage to perform "Wrecking Ball."
"I'm really out of breath. I was really going hard with the 'Wrecking Ball' thing," Swift, who also collected wins for favorite country album, favorite female pop/rock artist and favorite country female artist, told the audience.

Justin Timberlake is one talented guy and his wife, Jessica Biel, is plenty aware.
On Sunday, Timberlake, 32, kicked off the fan-voted American Music Awards with a win for favorite pop/rock male artist before taking home awards for soul/R&B artist and soul/R&B album categories.
He also brought the audience to their feet with his performance of "Drink You Away," an alcohol-infused anthem from his latest release, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
But while everyone in the house seemed to be under Timberlake's spell, Biel, 31, was nowhere to be found. Fans took to Twitter to ponder where she was (and note their jealousy over her hot hubby).

Get your DVRs ready because you're going to want to hit rewind when performers including Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus take the stage at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday.
While Katy Perry is kicking off the night with her new single "Unconditionally," and Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, One Direction and Christina Aguilera will also be performing, we have a feeling that Gaga and Cyrus will steal the show with their over-the-top performances.
Meat dresses, seashell bras, burning pianos and fake blood, foam fingers, barely there bikinis, latex-clothed little people … we're wondering how they're going to top their previous awards show performances, but Gaga, who'll be singing "Do What U Want" with R. Kelly, gave a hint of what's to come.
