LOS ANGELES (AFP) - US rapper Kanye West has won the most nominations for next years Grammys, followed closely by British singer Adele, continuing her awards success despite recent health woes. West was nominated Wednesday in seven categories for the music industrys top awards, to be given out February 12, while Adele got six nods including three of the key categories as did Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars. Lady Gaga was arguably the star of the nominations show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, opening and closing the hour-long concert even though she is only nominated in three categories for the 54th annual Grammy Awards. Gaga sang her new single Marry the Night and an unlikely duo with country music duo Sugarland, while other highlights included pioneering hip hop DJ Grandmaster Flash and Rihanna joining the show from London. But the substance of the evening was the nominations, which can make careers and add a lucrative boost to any artist or record. Adeles Rolling in the Deep was tipped for Record of the Year, along with Bon Ivers Holocene, Hawaiian crooner Bruno Marss Grenade, The Cave by British folk rockers Mumford and Sons, and Katy Perrys Firework. The London songstresss album 21 also led the nods for Album of the Year, and will fight it out with the Foo Fighters Wasting Light, Lady Gagas Born this Way, Bruno Marss Doo Wops and Hooligans and Rihannas Loud. Kanye Wests seven nods include All of the Lights for Song of the Year, up against Mumford and Sons The Cave, Marss Grenade, Adeles Rolling in the Deep and Bon Ivers Holocene.
