Bruno Mars is apparently one of the Recording Academy’s Grammy golden boys…
After scoring seven nominations last year, the 26-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer/songwriter has scored six nominations for the 54th annual Grammy Awards, including nods in the three top categories.
Mars’ “Grenade” is nominated for record of the year honors—which recognizes performance and production—along with Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” Bon Iver’s “Holocene,” Mumford & Sons’ “The Cave” and Katy Perry’s “Firework.”
In addition, Mars’ I’d-die-for-your-love tune is up for song of the year, along with Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” (featuring Rihanna, Fergie and Kid Cudi), Mumford & Sons’ “The Cave,” Bon Iver’s “Holocene” and Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”
Meanwhile Mars’ “Doo-Wops and Hooligans” is nominated for album of the year, along with Adele’s “21,” Foo Fighters, “Wasting Light,” Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and Rihanna’s “Loud.”
Mars also received nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Rap superstar Kanye West led the field with seven nominations, while British soul singer Adele received six nominations.
Other Hispanic musicians and acts receiving nods include Fergie, Christina Aguilera, Calle 13, Maná, Intocable and Pepe Aguilar.
