This year's Grammy nominations brought many upsets, including a notorious snub for Beliebers everywhere, but also many fresh faces. So who are these new nominees, and how'd they score the prestigious nod?
Of this year's many surprises and newcomers (Frank Ocean, The Lumineers, Alabama Shakes to name a few), by and large the nominees have some fantastic, well-produced records to back up their nominations. The same can't be said for Al Walser, the curious, mysterious addition to the Best Dance Recording category. Now, here's the thing. If you're not an avid follower of Electronic dance music, or if you've never heard of it in your life, you're still just as likely to have heard of Al Walser as the genre's most rabid fans. That's what makes this nomination such a shock.
