Responses have been varied since the announcement of 50th Annual Grammy Awards nominees on Thursday, December 6. While some musicians are delighted and planning on celebrations, one is pissed on not being included in the list at all.
Rocker Pete Wentz indirectly hit out at music bosses at The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for failing to nominate his band Fall Out Boy whose February album, 'Infinity on High', reached platinum this year.
On the band's site, Wentz wrote: "The first reaction is jealousy mixed with a slight sense of entitlement. We just want to be a part of your club... A fifty-year-old white man shouldn't decide whether we are relevant or not and he doesn't."
Other musician is putting his hope to win at least one out of the four nods he is nominated in. R'n'B singer Ne-Yo said, "I had a couple of nominations last year, and I didn't win. And to get this many nominations this year, it's an honor for somebody to give you the recognition, of course, but it'd also be an honor if I win." Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine whose band is up for two also wished the same thing.
Bagging four nominations, Akon planned to call his mom while Plain White T's frontman Tom Higgenson said he would most definitely take Delilah, the subject of the band's nominated hit 'Hey There Delilah', as his date at the actual ceremony.
The 50th annual Grammy Awards will hand its gramophones on February 10 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
