    Kanye West, Adele,
    Foo Fighters and
    Bruno Mars will be
    the ones to watch
    at the 54th annual
    Grammy Awards after each landing a slew of
    top nominations.
    The Stronger rapper leads the way with seven
    nods - his star-studded collaboration All of the
    Lights is up for Song of the Year and Best Rap
    Song, while he also earns a nod in the latter
    category for his Jay-Z duet Otis. The hip-hop
    stars' Watch The Throne album will also go
    head-to-head with West's solo disc, My
    Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy for Best Rap
    Album.
    Adele is in the running for six honors and her
    critically-acclaimed project 21 will fight for the
    prestigious titles of Record of the Year and
    Album of the Year, while Rolling in the Deep
    will compete for Song of the Year.
    Rockers Foo Fighters and R&B singer Mars are
    also six-time nominees, while Lil Wayne,
    dubstep DJ Skrillex and Lady Gaga earned
    multiple mentions too.
    The contenders for the 2012 ceremony were
    announced on Wednesday during the
    specially-televised Grammy Nominations
    Concert Live, which was hosted by LL Cool J
    from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
    Performance highlights from the Grammy
    Nominations Concert Live came from R&B star
    Usher, who remembered late songwriters
    Nickolas Ashford and Jerry Leiber with a
    medley of their hits, while Common, Lupe
    Fiasco and LL Cool J hit the stage to pay tribute
    to rap icon Grandmaster Flash with a rousing
    rendition of hip-hop anthem The Message
    with the legend himself and his longtime
    collaborator Melle Mel to mark the recording's
    recent addition to the 2012 Grammy Hall of
    Fame.
    There were also two unlikely country
    collaborations - Jason Aldean and rapper
    Ludacris teamed up for the singer's track Dirt
    Road Anthem, and Lady Gaga, who opened
    the event wearing skeletal face paint to sing
    Marry The Night, was joined by Sugarland to
    close the show with the pop superstar's hit
    single You and I.
    The 54th annual Grammy Awards will take
    place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on
    12 February .
