Although it is shocking that Timberlake was not http://janesaddiction.com/users/FYkXyWft/blogs/ prominent in the general categories, it is hard to see the artist coming away from the event with none of the awards he is nominated http://www.celebstaped.com/ for. However, due to stiff competition, it will not be surprising to see Timberlake lose in the pop and general categories.

Their nominations include Song of the Year for Same Love featuring Mary Lambert and Album of the Year for The Heist, two of the nights biggest honors. Lorde: Coming out of seemingly nowhere in 2013 was 17-year-old Lorde with her hit single Royals. Although only nominated for four awards, this young New Zealand native has the capacity to take home the biggest awards of the night, as she is nominated for Record and Song of the Year for Royals and Album of the Year for Pure Heroine.
