Last night, Taylor Swift and LL Cool J took center stage to announce what every musician’s been waiting for: the nominees for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. But before we get into the long list — no really, it’s huge — Teen.com’s calling out a few no-brainers, plus the biggest shocks…

Not so surprisingly, Taylor herself nabbed multiple nominations (though, most were for her contributions to the Hunger Games soundtrack rather than Red), as well as fellow country girl Carrie Underwood. But much to the surprise of tweens and teens all over the world, Justin Bieber and his Believe album scored ZERO nods. He basically owned this year’s American Music Awardsthree out of three wins! — so it’s mind-blowing he didn’t receive any Grammy recognition. Meanwhile, his pal, Carly Rae Jepsen, managed to snag a couple nominations for herself. Uhh, k. Onto the rest!

    Finally, the lack of Bieber nominations seems to be a sign that the musicians and critics have been right all along, and he’s total rubbish. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Beliebers.
