The Artist: Young Jeezy
The Nomination: "I Do," feat. Jay-Z and Andre 3000 for "Best Rap Performance"
Why It Surprised Us: The four other songs in the "Best Rap Performance" category (Drake's "HYFR," Jay-Z and Kanye West's "N----s In Paris," Nas's "Daughters," and Kanye West's "Mercy") were all really, really big radio records. "I Do" wasn't and, yet, the Grammy voters apparently understood the impact of it and felt it was strong enough to warrant a Grammy nod.
