Stevie Wonder Names the Grammy Nominees for Best Album of the YearThe 53rd annual Grammy Awards are just around the corner! Last night's 'Grammy Nomination Concert' (Wed., 10PM ET on CBS) revealed who would compete for the top musical award in the nation. The biggest prize: Best Album of the Year. Legendary performer Stevie Wonder read off the list of nominees -- and he gave us a little history lesson, which included himself.

Stevie said that in the past, the Best Album award has gone to the greatest performers. The award went to some true geniuses, "from Frank Sinatra, to the Beatles, to Michael Jackson, to U2, to Stevie Wond ... " Whoops. There was a brief surprised pause, and then he added: " ... Stevie Wonder?"

Okay, we know that Stevie wasn't reading from cue cards -- so he had his remarks memorized, and wasn't actually surprised. But if anyone's won the right to plug himself a little, it's Stevie. The singer-songwriter has won 22 Grammys in his lifetime, tying him with U2, and placing him 5th on the all-time list of winners.

And now, your list of Grammy Best Album nominees are ...

"The Suburbs" -- Arcade Fire
"Recovery" -- Eminem
"Need You Now" -- Lady Antebellum
"The Fame Monster" -- Lady Gaga
"Teenage Dream" -- Katy Perry

Eminem led all of this year's artists with 10 nominations, Bruno Mars was second with eight, and the Ladies Gaga and Antebellum tied with six nominations each. Still, they all have a long way to go if they want to catch up with Stevie's 22 Grammy victories. (And that's not even counting his Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.)
