He hopes to share a win for Best Traditional R&B Performance with the Robert Glasper Experiment. He's changed a lot since he was part of America's favorite TV family, but we love the new look, plus he's super talented!

His father, Bob Marley, is a Grammy winner AND a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

13. If "Fancy" or "Bang Bang" win in their category, it will be a first since 2001.

Both songs are nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. If either song wins, it will be the first all-female collab to win in the Pop Field since "Lady Marmalade." I think we all agree though, Lady Marmalade is still the best.

15. And last but certainly not least, Neil Patrick Harris has been nominated!
