The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences kicked off the nomination announcements for its 55th annual Grammy Awards yesterday during a concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville hosted by Taylor Swift and LL Cool J. The roster of works vying for the trophy as Best Musical Theater Album this year include the 2012 Broadway revival cast recording of Stephen Sondheim’s 1971 musical Follies, the 2011 Broadway revival cast recording of the Gershwins’ 1935 musical Porgy and Bess (which won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical), the original Broadway cast recording of the 2012 stage adaptation of the 1992 film Newsies from Alan Menken and Jack Feldman (who won the Tony for Best Score), the original Broadway cast recording of the 2012 Gershwin retro musical Nice Work If You Can Get It, and the original Broadway cast recording of the 2012 stage adaptation of the 2006 Oscar-winning film Once (which won the Tony for Best Musical).

Among the nominees for Best Song Written for Visual Media is the Emmy-nominated “Let Me Be Your Star” by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, which was sung by Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, the dueling Marilyn Monroes in the fictional Broadway-bound musical Bombshell in the backstage series Smash. The winners will be revealed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10, 2013, during the ceremony broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m.
