Can you feel that in the air? It’s awards season all over again!
Yesterday, the 55th Annual Grammy Awards nominees were revealed during “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!” concert in Tennessee, United States. And it’s clear that one of the world’s fast favourite (but little) bands, Fun. is getting what they deserve after all the hard work that they’ve put into their music.
Fun. is leading Grammys pack with six nominations, including “Record of the Year”, “Song of the Year”, “Album of the Year”, and “Best New Artist”. It sure didn’t surprise us because who doesn’t already know this song of theirs by heart?:

Seems like they’re going to have their hands full, huh?
Other nominees who are tied to Fun. with the same amount of nominations are such as Frank Ocean, Mumford & Songs, and Kanye West and Jay-Z. Kanye West and Jay-Z obviously hit high notes with their “Watch the Throne” collaboration, fo shizzle. C’mon, you can’t say that this wasn’t a great comeback for the duo:
