In today's Daily Noise, brought to you by Fuse and Billboard.com, the big news is the Grammy nominations announced last night. Beyonce unsurprisingly leads the pack with 10 nods, followed by Taylor Swift with eight--both women are nominated in all three big categories of album, record and song of the year. Notable omissions were Kanye West, who earned six nominations but was shut out of album of the year after being up for his three previous albums, and Whitney Houston, whose comeback was ignored by Grammy voters. Be sure to check out all the nominations at Billboard.com. Meanwhile in the Road Report, Airborne Toxic Event talks about how their fast success forced them to adapt their live show.
