2013 Grammy Nominees
Frank Ocean, Fun., Mumford, Jay-Z and others lead pack.
The music industry waited with bated breath Wednesday night to hear the 55th Annual Grammy Awards nominations. And as names were announced in the live event held in Nashville, Tenn., this year’s crop of nominees celebrated — on Twitter.

Indie-pop trio Fun. nabbed six nods, making the cut for the four general Grammy categories: new artist, album of the year for their Some Nights, and record and song for its chart-blazing hit with soul singer Janelle Monae, “We Are Young.” The artists shared their delight on Twitter, writing, “Unreal night. Thank you for listening.”

Five other acts led the pack with newcomers Fun.: R&B breakout star Frank Ocean, English rock band Mumford & Sons, rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West, and the Black Key’s Dan Auerbach each earned six nominations, too.

While some slammed the Grammys for snubs — Justin Bieber‘s manager said they “blew it” by not honoring the teen pop phenom — other rejoiced in their hard-earned recognition on Twitter.

See what the nominees said about their nods:
