Lady Gaga has five nominations: Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Best Dance Recording for "Poker Face," and Album Of The Year and Best Electronic/Dance Album for The Fame.
Three-time GRAMMY winner Green Day and the Zac Brown Band each have three nods: Green Day with Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Rock Song for "21 Guns," and Best Rock Album for 21st Century Breakdown; and the Zac Brown Band with Best New Artist, Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals for "Chicken Fried," and Best Country Album for The Foundation.
I'm very excited about Green Day and Gaga performing on the same award show again (like the VMAs and AMAs). It makes them so much more bearable!
