It’s that time of year again!
Indeed, tonight saw the 2014 Grammy nominations unveiled as per usual of its nomination concert special weeks before the actual showing. But, what comes with the ‘per usual’ showing are the jaw-dropping surprises, snubs, and all out “shut-outs” that accompany the annual spectacle.
Always a heated debate-starter, the coveted tally saw the likes of Christina Aguilera, Trey Songz, Janelle Monae, Chris Brown, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Brandy, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, India.Arie, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga all go without mention.
For Bieber – whose manager made headlines for his rant regarding his 2013 Grammy shutout – this would be a second-go-round despite consistently clocking some of the year’s biggest hits.
Tuck in below for a list of other surprises and snubs:

Chris Brown unwrapped new mixtape ‘X Files’ moments ago.
The free five-track set has been unleashed as a bridge of sorts to C. Breezy’s serially delayed sixth album ‘X’.

So what are you waiting for? Take a listen below…

Already delayed in earnest, Chris Brown‘s sixth studio album ‘X’ was dealt a devastating blow when the singer was arrested and jailed on suspicious of assault last month.
The ‘Fine China’ led set had danced around a number of release dates, yet was -at that point- scheduled to hit stores on December 3rd.
However, with the 24-year-old rushed into rehab for three months in the wake of the drama, it rendered the promo run required for a major album launch virtually impossible. As such, making the latest date likely impossible too.
Still, in recognising how important it is to consistently maintain a musical presence, C.Breezy is gearing up to roll-out a new mixtape, aptly titled ‘X Files’.
Details after the jump…

Now, Chris is biting back, filing a countersuit against his supposed victim.

However, despite the singer being released from prison last night, promoters for the 92.3 Now Scream extravaganza have announced that the event has been cancelled.
Subsequently, the ladies – who had been working with renown choreographer Luam for the show, released a video statement to their fans.
Watch their heartfelt message below…

‘Neighbors Know My Name’ maestro Trey Songz is seeing his name riding atop headlines for a courtroom showdown that happened moments ago on behalf of friend/fellow R&B hitmaker Chris Brown.
As you may recall, Brown was arrested over the weekend for allegedly assaulting a man in Washington D.C.
Fans who gathered to show their support for the ‘Look At Me Now’ singer earlier today outside of the courtroom where his hearing is set were sent into a frenzy when Songz appeared and tried to gain entry to the building. Reports have it he was denied…
