Well, the ones that matter to me anyway.
Best Long Music Video
Big Easy Express!
Simply because I adore Alexander Ebert and Edward Sharpe And Magnetic Zeroes are one of my favorite band of all time. Their debut album “Up From Below” masterpiece,”Home”, “Om Nashi Me” and “Up From Below” are my favorite tracks form that album and still are today. Ugh, Edward Sharpe, that truly is the feeling that you get when his voice rushes over your body, it’s a pretty divine moment.
Best Short Music Video
Rihanna Ft. Calvin Harris – We Found Love
Literally, what more can you say? We Found Love was anthem. I remember when the song came out and I was on my to New York, New York to Teen Vogue Fashion University and the energy and the bass totally embodied everything I was feeling at that moment. Then when video came just re- enforced it. I totally would lay in front of a train and die for this song.
Best Remixed Recording- Non-Classic
In my Mind (Axwell Remix)
Best Alternative Music Album
ANYTHING BUT GOYTE!!!!
M83 Hurry Up, Were Dreaming.
M83 this double disc album, is the best electronic/pop album I have bought in 2011. A lot of people hipster/neo-now people disovered them through their hit song “Midnight City” that has used in various ad campaigns but most notable Victoria Secret “New Angel Fragrance” My absolute favorite, must listen to song is “Ratconte-Moi une Histoire” from the beginning sends you on this cloud nine trip just by sheer majestically melodies.
Best Rock Performance
Coldplay- Charlie Brown
just because I love the sick ass remix by one of my favorite D.J’s and who is featured on Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic, Dave Aude.
Best Dance/Electronic Album

Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance
Miguel, Miguel, makes me wanna rock my hips and suck my thumb at the same time…-_- I know to much. BUT seriously, i feel as if he was singing to me, I wish someone would sing to me like that. Honestly long as that horrible excuse for a song Refills doesn’t win, I’ll be okay.

Frank Ocean, Channel Orange
Hands down, little Frankie deserves this, he just make my heart this whole album makes this dyke wanna be somebodies Cleopatra. Oh yeah, fuck #TeamBrezzy
Best Rap Album
God Forgives, I don’t – Rick Ross
“Big Fat Nigga, Huffin and Puffin.” Ricky Rozay, I loved this big ol’ boy since his debut single “Hustlin” riding around the country roads of Monroe, Michigan doing “hoodrat”, “ratchet” things with my friends. This year I really stand behind my man.
Record Of The Year
Frank Ocean, Thinking About You
I mean honestly, it will probably be Gotye Somebody That You Used to Know simply because they played the shit out of it and also it was every little “hipster” child’s dream lullaby.

Florence and The Machine
Best New Artist
Best Dance Recording
Swedish House Mafia- Don’t Worry Child
THERE WAS TIME! I USE TO LOOK INTO MY FATHER EYES!
I’m so happy this song is being nominated because I seriously have had this track on repeat for about two-three months now and just belting it out as if my life depended on it. Literally, the build up and that heavy bass is enough to make anyone shudder. Yes, in fact it is that, that, that g, double o, d – good.
