SoundDiego is tipping its hat to this year’s batch of Grammy nominees --especially those artists who toured through town.

Taking it to the big stage is always quite a feat for emerging artists and popular favorites alike. This year’s fierce competition is no exception, as the star-studded nominee list spans the likes of The Black Keys, Drake, Carly Rae Jepsen and virtually everything in-between. 2012 was certainly a fine time to be a music fan, and Sounddiego was lucky enough to spend some quality time with some the artists that made it all happen.

SoundDiego TV captured a handful of Grammy caliber gems last year, the first of which -- and maybe the most exciting of us -- was a pair of Sessions at the Casbah with the breakthrough folk group and double nominee the Lumineers (Best New Artist and Best Americana Album). Our cameras also caught up with West Coast rap legend Snoop Dogg (Best Rap Song), who played a pair of shows at the Belly Up in December. At about the same time, we got a front row seat to Rick Ross (Best Rap Album) at Viejas Arena; we shot Steve Aoki (Best Pop Duo/Group Performance) at the Valley View Casino

If you didn’t get the chance to catch to catch these Grammy hopefuls on the show or in person, it’s OK! There was other exclusive online coverage to keep you satisfied. Take a peek at galleries of the majestic Florence & the Machine’s appearance at the newly anointed Sleep Train Amphitheater or LMFAO’s glaring neon antics at the Viejas Arena, both of which are dueling for the Best Pop/Duo performance. And if that’s not up your alley, New Zealand pop sensation and Gotye collaborator Kimbra (Record of the Year) had a chat with SoundDiego during her hectic tour schedule, sharing her surprising success story.  
 
It’s good to see credit given when it’s deserved; keep tuned in to SoundDiego to get an inside look at next year’s Grammy contenders.
