t was a virtual shutout for Miley Cyrus at the Grammy nominations. Instead Robin Thicke, who gained notoriety when he was twerked by the former Disney pop star, got the nod for his song "Blurred Lines."  

Miley's single "We Can't Stop" has been doing well in the charts as well as the store shelves. It was even cited UK's No. 1 single in August by hitting sales of 128,000 for the first week.

In September, her controversial song "Wrecking Ball" landed on top of Billboard Hot 100. After the hoopla died down regarding her music video where she rode a giant iron ball naked, the single skyrocketed to the top the week after a series of parodies that went viral on YouTube.

Both songs fit the criteria for a nomination in the major categories at the Grammy Awards.

Even though she already won multiple awards and recognitions from other award-giving bodies, the Grammy has been very elusive for Miley. The closest she has come to winning was for the single "The Climb" but she withdrew the single for consideration because it was submitted for the wrong category.

The Grammy's has several major categories, including Song of the Year, Best Pop/Duo Performance, Album of the Year, Best Country Album, Best New Artist, and Record of the Year.

There are few surprises in this year's nominations. Music mogul Jay Z leads the nominees with nine nominations. Meanwhile Justin Timberlake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Kendrick Lamar were nominated for seven categories.

Taylor Swift, who seems to be a staple at the Grammy's, got the nod for Album of The Year for "Red."

The nominees were announced last Friday night in a live concert in the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The 56th Grammy Award Nominations will air on Jan. 26 on CBS.
