Maroon 5 headlined the Grammy Nominations Concert last night (Wed, Dec. 5) on CBS as the main categories and nominations were announced live on television. The event was hosted by rapper LL Cool J and country star Taylor Swift, as well as other performances from alternative act Fun., Hunter Hayes, Derks Bentley, and many others.
Maroon 5 were nominated right off the bat the evening for Best Pop Vocal Album for their fourth album Overexposed, which dropped on June 26th this summer, and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. The band is also nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Group or Duo for the song "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa.
It was as shocker to us that Maroon 5 wasn't nominated for Best Collaboration or Best Short Music Video. At least the guys are nominated twice at next year's award ceremony!
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air live on Sun, Feb. 10, 2013 at 8/7pm CT on CBS! Mark your calendars.
Watch Maroon 5's performance from the event of "Moves Like Jagger", "Daylight", and "One More Night":
