Carly Rae Jepson’s song, Call Me Maybe, may have been the catchiest song of the year but will it take home ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2013 Grammy Awards?

2013-Grammy-Nominees

Whether you were bobbing to the beat of Jepson or standing tall singing We are Young at the local dance club, 2013 brought forth a lot of new talent and revived some old , and I mean, talent as well.  It’s nice to see Bruce Springsteen up for Rock Album of the Year don’t you think?
