The Recording Academy partnered with Pepsi and Pandora to release a short video compilation this morning that features quick Q&As with some of the Best New Artist Nominees for The 54th GRAMMYs. Representing a variety of genres, nominated artists Skrillex, The Band Perry, Bon Iver and J Cole all talk about what it's like to be nominated this year. Nominee Nicki Minaj is not included in the video but she will appear and perform during the live show.
I'd imagine that it's pretty darn exciting to be up for a GRAMMY, and even though all say that they are "just happy to be nominated," I'm sure that they are secretly hoping to grab the big price. They are all equally deserving of music's top honors and will have to wait and see who will ultimately wins on GRAMMY night. Tune in to CBS on February 12 at 8 p.m. EST to watch The 54th GRAMMY Awards.
