GRAMMYS: Metallica in Primetime, Rest of Rock Not

posted by Nard -

Metallica -- sharing the stage with Lady Gaga -- is the only rock act you'll see on stage Sunday at night during the Grammys.

And with James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich nominated in the Best Rock Song category for "Hardwired," that's likely the only rock category that will be on the televised ceremony hosted by James Corden. The bulk of the awards are given out during the afternoon Premiere Ceremony, which streams on Grammy.com.

Twenty One Pilots are the leading rock nominee, as they're up for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Stressed Out," and Best Rock Performance for "Heathens." Frontman Tyler Joseph has two songwriting nominations -- Best Rock Song and Best Song Written for Visual Media for "Heathens" from Suicide Squad.

David Bowie's Blackstar brought in five nominations -- the title track is up for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song, and the album is up for Best Alternative Music Album, Best Recording Package and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.

Jack White has three nominations, including Best Rock Performance for "Don't Hurt Yourself," the song he recorded with Beyonce for her Album of the Year nominee, Lemonade

Radiohead also have two nods -- Best Rock Song for "Burn the Witch" and Best Alternative Music Album for A Moon Shaped Pool.

Artists getting one nomination include Megadeth, Disturbed, Korn, Highly Suspect, Cage the Elephant, Panic at the Disco and Weezer.
