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.

LL Cool J is glad you're talking about his controversial duet, "Accidental Racist," with Brad Paisley.
That means he's doing his job.
"Music is about ... connecting different people, and building bridges and breaking the rules," the rapper tells CNN. "If it's not compelling, and it's not complex and it's not interesting, then what are we doing it for? So I think that's the right move."
"I needed to do something that was going to be interesting like that, and shake things up, and jump out of the box," he said. "I'm really proud of it, and I hope the world hears it and enjoys it."

If the song was intended to get people talking, it's been a staggering success.
But Brad Paisley's "Accidental Racist," a duet with LL Cool J on his new album Wheelhouse, out Tuesday, is also hugely controversial.
Styled as a conversation between a white Southerner and a black New Yorker, the song features the two singers having a charged debate about race – and features Paisley's character walking into a coffee shop wearing a shirt with a Confederate flag on it.

So, did they?
Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Rowland may have crossed a line with their outfits – Lopez in an Anthony Vaccarello dress with a high thigh slit, and Rowland in a Georges Chakra outfit that showed lots of skin.
