The singer-songwriter, who has had a triumphant year with her smash sophomore album 21 which includes the chart-destroying smash Rolling in The Deep, has recently undergone throat surgery for a vocal haemorrhage that forced her to cancel a string of dates last month. She will face compeition from likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Rihanna for the awards.
Despite her impressive haul of nominations though, she wasn’t the artist to receive the most noms on the night, that accolade going to 14-time Grammy winner Kanye West, who received seven.
Mumford and Sons also held up the British end, winning a nomination for Best Album of the Year and Song of the Year for The Cave, with the late Amy Winehouse being posthumously nominated for her duet with Tony Bennet on Body and Soul in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.
The Foo Fighters (Wasting Light), Kings of Leon (Come Around Sundown) and Wilco (The Whole Love) lead the charge for Best Rock Album, with Skrillex and Bon Iver amongst the nominations for Best New Artist.
The winners will be announced at the 54th annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles in February next year.
