    Not necessarily.  Just because you perform at the Grammy Nominations Concert, doesn’t mean you’re going to be nominated for a shitload of Grammys or any Grammys for that matter.

    I do think Maroon 5 will get Pop Duo/Group and/or Pop Vocal Album nominations.

    “Great things” as in Pop Duo/Group and Pop Album, then yes. Album of the Year or any other general field category isn’t guaranteed just because they are performing. Voting hasn’t even started yet. We still have less than two weeks for the end of eligibility.

    Right, that’s what I meant, noms in the pop field that are still great for an album like ‘Overexposed’, not neccesarily GF noms…

    I wonder who else will be performing, I’m thinking One Direction and Fun. since usually a BNA nominee performs. Christina Aguilera in the line-up would be a great thing too!

    Is there a chance that Luke Bryan is the Country representative in the General Field? His album ‘Tailgates & Tainlines’ has sold ~1,5 million copies in the US but is ineligible for AOTY ’cause it was released on august 2011. However, ‘Drunk On You’ and ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye’ have been hits for him, and the former could get a nom, just saying. He’s never been a Grammy nominee tho…

    Anyway, country’s coming hard this year…

    Double yuck, especially if she gets general field noms and makes that fake shocked face of hers again.

    LOOOOVE country music, but with the release of “Red,” it’s very evident that Taylor Swift is no longer country. The fact that she’s still on the country charts sickens me. Glad Luke Bryan is gonna be there to represent the industry. It’d be cool to see him get a nomination. Country Album would’ve been a good category for him, but as mentioned above, “Tailgates & Tanlines” is ineligible. Country Solo maybe? I can’t see “Drunk On You” getting into Country Song.

    Could Luke Bryan be the country rep for Best New Artist?

    All the other Country new artists (Scotty M, Hunter H, Brantley G, Thompson Square, etc) don’t really have a big enough name to be competitive with the R&B/Pop/Rock new artists to get nominated.  Luke has been around for awhile, but he’s never been nominated and he’s not released more than 3 albums. So technically he’s eligible for BNA.  Thoughts?

    Nah. He’s been topping the country charts for a while now. “Doin’ My Thing” spawned two #1 singles, one of which went platinum. The lead single from that album also went platinum, but peaked at #2. He also won New Artist of The Year at the ACM’s a while back. I’m pretty sure he’s ineligible for BNA by now. 

    2012 was definitely Luke Bryan’s breakout year, as evidenced by his CMA nominations. I think he’ll be able to crack one of the country categories this year.
