(2012 Grammy Nominees)

By Nadeska Alexis

Kanye West picked up an early Grammy Award tonight during the pre-telecast for Best Rap Album, with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, meaning that he beat out his collaboration album Watch the Throne with Jay-Z, in the same category. Early in the live show broadcast however, Jay-Z and Kanye West both picked up a trophy for Best Rap Peformance with their hit single “Otis.” Hard to say if either artist is very thrilled about their wins tonight, since neither of them have showed up yet.

Fans took to Twitter to react to the “Otis” win, with some convinced that Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” should have taken the award instead.

janniaragon Otis deserved it. Love that song. #Grammys

ScottGarg How is it possible that #KanyeWest won w/ Jay-z for ‘Otis’ in Best Rap Perf category, but no songs from ‘Dark Twisted’ were even nominated?

OIdBlueEyes Someone fill me in on why neither Jay-Z or Kanye West are at the Grammys? Otis just won but no one there to accept it?

kathrynglynn Otis is a sick song,but I honestly think Look At Me Know should have won because who doesn’t wish they could rap the Busta Rhymes part..
