The nominations are in! And Justin Bieber is … out? Blasphemy!
Despite snubbing The Biebs entirely, the Grammys still maintained a youthful nod this year, with nominations going to Taylor Swift, fun (above), Gotye, Kelly Clarkson, Frank Ocean and The Black Keys for record of the year. Carly Rae Jepsen unsurprisingly received a song of the year nomination for her “Call Me Maybe” hit, and cutie patootie Hunter Hayes received a best country album nomination for “Hunter Hayes.” He’ll compete against the Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert and The Time Jumpers in that category.

The 55th annual Grammy Awards will premiere 7 p.m. Feb. 10 on CBS.
