It’s officially GRAMMY season, as the nominees for the 2015 57th annual show were announced over social media on Friday, December 5. Sam Smith, Pharrell and Beyonceled the way with six nominations each. Pharrell picks up extra nominations for his contributions to Beyonce and Ed Sheeran‘s albums as a producer while Beyonce passed Dolly Parton as the most nominated female of all time.
The format of this post will be the same as previous year’s: who should win/who will win. I will have some help here with our own Cody Taylor doing the Rock categories and Carina Stewart from Q100.3 doing the country categories.
It’s officially GRAMMY season! This morning on CBS the lead up to “Music’s Biggest Night started,” when Pharrell and Ed Sheeran dropped by to kick off the announcing of 2015 GRAMMY nominees. This year the show has decided to be more social media friendly and announce the 2015 GRAMMY Nominees over social media, and update them throughout the day.

It’s that time of the year, when music publications release their end of the year lists, first up is Rolling Stone, who released their top 50 songs of 2014. “King Bey” took the top spot of top song of 2014 on their list with “Drunk in Love,” which featured her husband Jay Z.
Yesterday was World AIDS Day, and U2 frontman Bono, threw a free “surprise concert” in Times Square, that he wasn’t there for, to raise money for AIDS research. The rest of U2 performed with Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and Bruce Springsteen. Also gracing the stage was Carrie Underwood and my guy Kanye West.
Before the WWE Smackdown taping in Knoxville, TN WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose stopped by HOT 104.5 and I was able to chop it up with him. During the interview we talked about what it was like to debut at the top of the WWE and stay there, how much of the Dean Ambrose we see on TV is the real Dean Ambrose, what he does in his off time and why this song is significant:
I really wish I knew why it is that people in Flori-duh do the dumbest things, because that’s exactly where we’re headed for this weeks Jeanius of the Week. This is where we find 45 year old Stephen Ramsey, who was arrested after calling 911 three times and asking the dispatcher on a date.
With exactly seven days until the top of the 2014-2015 NBA season, the Orlando Magic have come to terms with their center of the future, Nikola Vucevic. Vuc, who was sent to the Magic from Philadelphia as part of the Dwight Howard trade two years ago, has averaged a double-double for the team in his two seasons.
I knew it wasn’t going to be long before we came back to Florida for a Jeanius of the Week, but that’s exactly where we’re headed. There we find 19 year old Sean Johnson, who was arrested for committing a lewd act with a Walmart stuffed animal.
Iggy Azalea is on top of the world right now, number one singles, shes tied with John Legend for the most American Music Awards nominations, six. Well she was the butt of a joke by hip hop legend Snoop Dogg on Instagram, but instead of keeping quiet Iggy fired back at Snoop.
I’m surprised that more Jeanius(es) of the Week don’t come from remote places like Wisconsin, but this story here is a doozy. Heather Basten and Travis Husnik were pulled over when police saw their car drifting into oncoming traffic. The rest as they say is history and that’s why they’re our Jeanius(es) of the Week!
It’s usually not funny to laugh at kids, but this is great. The Wallkill Mighty Mites, from The New York Youth Football league had a little trouble running through the banner to celebrate a 24-0 win. What followed was a big heap of five and six years olds getting laughed at by their own cheerleaders.
