"Empire State of Mind" didn't make the list last year, and I think that had more to do with the song not getting cleared by the label. In Kanye's case, I think they just went with the categories below:

This list consists of:

Album of the Year nominees: (Adele, Bruno Mars, Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Foo Fighters)

Best New Artist nominees: (Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, The Band Perry, J. Cole, Skrillex)

Record of the Year nominees: (Adele, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons)

Pop Group nominees: (Maroon 5, Coldplay, The Black Keys, Tony Bennett, Foster The People)

Country field/Album nominees: (Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum)

Last year, no Best New Artist nominee was included on the album.

I was counting that as the only SOTY snub. It's probably an issue with song clearance. It should have been included over some of these others.

Surprised

"Moves Like Jagger" is included on this set.  Wasn't expecting that.

"All of the Lights" is not listed because the SOTY category was not included in the album as The World Is Yours mentioned.
The problem is that the tracklisting is messy. In previous years the track was ordered according to the category (ROTY nominees first then AOTY and so on...) and since 2009 (i think) the tracklist has been random.
To me they should probably only have singers with multiple nominations and make it like a NOW compilation (if you get what I mean). 7x nominee Kanye and 5x nominee Lil Wayne and Radiohead are not listed simply because their categories were not selected whereas J. Cole and Maroon 5 (with one single nod each) are in.

I know that SOTY wasn't included. That wasn't the point I was making. SOTY and ROTY have a 4/5 overlap. When I first saw this list, "All of the Lights" was the first snub that drew my attention. Yes, ROTY does have all the nominees there, but they don't always include the full category of the few categories they choose to feature (like with country album, there's no George Strait). "All of the Lights" could have been included in this list. I think it was an issue with song clearance more than anything, since there is some urban representation on the compilation.

I get what you're saying perfectly, but the only urban representation on the album are J. Cole and Nicki Minaj, who are both nominated for Best New Artist (it seems that they wanted to include all BNA contenders since they didn't include any last year), and arguably Rihanna, who is nominated for AOTY (all AOTY contenders were included on the list), but "All of the Lights" should have been included.

Does it really matter? No one really buys this Grammy albums. I'd argue that the Academy should discontinue them unless all of the proceeds are going to charities.

My Grammy credentials!

I hadn't thought of doing it like that before. That could work as a general representation of what the field of contenders were really like that year, but it might exclude some of the low-nod breakouts too.

I for one get them every year. And the proceeds do go to charity.

Who cares if "All Of The Lights" isn't included on this compilation?  I, personally, don't think the song is all that great and should not have even gotten a SOTY nom.

and there's no one from R&B category at all ... R&B is a "left over" category this year that nobody want to touch ...

Totally. I love MBDTF. It's one of my favorite albums of all time. However, "All of the Lights" is easily one of the weaker tracks. Kanye should have backed something like "Lost in the World" or "Runaway" or even "Monster" instead.  
Here's my signature... just so I have it. That way, I have it. I promise. It's just to have it.

For me, “All of the Lights” is one of the best songs on “MBDTF.” So I guess I’m one of those that “cares.” It’s too bad it’s not on here.
