Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga and Jay-Z all received six nominations each.  Jay-Z's collaboration with Alicia Keys on "Empire State of Mind" earned him a nod in the Record of the Year category, while Lady Gaga was nominated in the Album of the Year category for The Fame Monster.  Lady Antebellum were present in both the pop and country categories, including Record and Song of the Year for "Need You Now."

Other multiple nominees included rapper B.o.B., R&B star John Legend and rock legend Jeff Beck, who got five each, and rockers The Black Keys, rapper Drake, singer Cee-Lo Green, Katy Perry, Rihanna, hip-hop group The Roots and country star Zac Brown, all of whom received four nods.
