NBC HITS THE HIGH NOTES WITH GRAMMY NOMINATIONS FOR ADAM LEVINE AND BLAKE SHELTON OF ‘The Voice,’ JIMMY FALLON AND ‘SMASH
NBC’s been making beautiful music this past year with its successful programming, and some high notes were especially underscored yesterday with the announcement of Grammy nominations for the network’s stars and shows -- Adam Levine (with Maroon 5) and Blake Shelton of “The Voice,” Jimmy Fallon and “Smash.”

Shelton was honored with a Grammy nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for his song “Over”; Levine and his legendary band Maroon 5 received two nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album in “Overexposed” and for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the collaboration of Maroon 5 & Khalifa’s “Payphone.”

Fallon earned a Grammy nod for Best Comedy Album for “Blow Your Pants Off”; and NBC’s returning musical drama series “Smash” was a nominee as Best Song Written for Visual Media (“Let Me Be Your Star” from series songwriters Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman; performed by Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty). Shaiman and Wittman are also executive producers on “Smash.”

    @BATB IS SATANIC

    Floptina gets 0 nominations, hahaha!!!

    Hmm, maybe because she hasn’t been creating much music this year aside from her recently released album? She does, however, have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, seventeen Grammy nominations, and four Grammy awards; all earned before the age of 30.

    So does this mean that NBC wants people to watch the Grammys on CBS on Feb. 10, 2013?

    Of course people are going to watch the Grammys, [which got very high ratings last February (because of Whitney Houston and Adele)], but, it’s rare for a TV network to plug an awards show that airs on another network.

    “Levine and his legendary band Maroon 5″

    I like Maroon Five but LOL at the hyperbole ;)

    Let Me Be Your Star deserved that nomination, I only watched the pilot of Smash but that song is really good, too bad it lost in the emmy awards
