It's a transatlantic battle as British singer Adele and U.S. rapper Kanye West top Grammy nominations list .Kanye West and British singer Adele topped the list as the Grammy 2012 nominations were announced at a ceremony in Los Angeles in December 2011.

Rapper West got a leading seven nominations, while Adele got six, although the 23-year-old singer bagged some of the most prestigious categories, including record, album and song of the year.While the Grammys have a reputation for catering to an older demographic , this year's nominees are notably young, with 34-year-old West looking downright geriatric next to fellow nominees Adele (23), Rihanna (23), Lady Gaga (25) and Bruno Mars (26).
