Super star musicians Adele and Kanye West are leading the Grammy Nominations 2012 list with Kanye scoring 7 nods and Adele walking away with 6.

A personal favorite of ours, Bruno Mars, also ties Adele with 6 nominations as well as the Foo Fighters.

Next in line is Lil Wayne with 5 nominations and Bon Iver following him with 4 nods.
