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.

Katy Perry's "Roar" was released this week, and everyone seemed to be a fan – even her cat, Kitty Purry.
Well, maybe not everyone.
As Sara Bareilles fans (and other people with ears) quickly pointed out, the song sounds a lot like the singer's own "Brave." And Katy's not the only one channeling another this week.
Read on for the Bar Mitzvah kid embracing his inner J.Lo, the impressionist who channeled 19 divas, and more of best, most random things online.

Fans of buzzed-about new R&B artist Frank Ocean were in for a special treat on Tuesday when they came to his show at the Wiltern in L.A.
Aside from being treated to his smooth sounds, the crowd also got a glimpse of Drake, who made a surprise appearance in the VIP section of the venue.
"He showed up in a white T-shirt and jeans, with a date on his arm," a concertgoer tells PEOPLE. "As the crowd noticed him walking in, they screeched and created a spotlight on him with their cell phones while taking his picture."
Once settled, the source says a head-bobbing Drake, "sang along to a majority of the tunes and seemed in great spirits while occasionally joking around with pals and taking pictures with fans."
The "Take Care" artist didn't show any overt PDA with his unidentifiable guest, but he "occasionally whispered in her ear," according to the insider.
Sara Bareilles and Keri Hilson were also guests at the show.

Five people are dead and about 40 more were injured, officials confirmed, after high winds caused the collapse of a stage at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Saturday as crowds waited to see Sugarland perform.
Concertgoers at the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand in Indianapolis were warned that in the case of inclement weather, they were to move to the Pepsi Coliseum nearby.
"We are all right," Sugarland Tweeted on Saturday night in response. "We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you?ll join us. They need your strength."
Opening act Sara Bareilles performed her set before the bad weather struck. She also expressed her condolences via Twitter, writing, "I'm speechless and feel so helpless. Please send love and prayers to Indianapolis tonight. My heart aches for the lives lost."
