The 2010 Grammy nominations were announced last week. Whether you believe the ceremony is a night of honoring talented musicians or tremendous waste of time, here are some of the best songs and groups from this year in music.

Leading off tonight, here is Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs performing "Beg, Steal or Borrow" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. If you don't have their album God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise, go download it right now. I'll wait.

Here is Miranda Lambert and her track "House That Built Me," which is nominated for Song of the Year.

Also nominated for Song of the Year, here is Rihanna teaming up with Eminem on "Love The Way You Lie."

Lady Antebellum already won best song at this year's County Music Awards and the group is nominated again for "Need You Now." Here is their live performance from this year's CMAs.

Up for Best New Artist, here is Mumford & Sons with their video for "The Cave." They are an amazing band you should check out.
