The word is out: The 55th Annual Grammy Awards nominees have been announced in a concert in Nashville, Tennessee.

Taylor Swift and LL Cool JJ announced the nominees, but arguably the highlight was a strange impromptu beat-boxing performance by Taylor herself. She's all kinds of street. Look at that cred!

Anyway, now for the nominees. Gotye represented for Australia with three nods, while FUN., Frank Ocean, Mumford & Sons, Kanye West, Jay-Z and The Black Keys each topped the list with a whopping six nominations each.

Wrap your eyes around the big-four awards below:
