Kanye West didn't boot any hecklers from his show in Phoenix last night.

But that doesn't mean the rapper was in a good mood.

A few days after only receiving a pair of Grammy nominations - for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song - Kanye addressed the crowd in Arizona and wondered whether there was some kind of biased against him.

"Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys," a masked West complained. "What are they trying to say?"

Lil Wayne was nominated for eight Grammy Awards, including the prestigious album of the year honors. Lil Waybe will face off against Coldplay in that category. The British rockers were close behind, earning seven nominations total.

The Grammy nominations were announced on primetime TV as part of a special concert featuring live performances by Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and some douchebag whose name we forget. The event was co-hosted by Taylor Swift.

After enduring hard drugs, and times, of late, Amy Winehouse and Kanye West enjoyed some good news Thursday, earning 14 Grammy nominations total.

Kanye West, 30, whose mother, Donda West, died in November after undergoing plastic surgery at the (shady) hands of Dr. Jan Adams, earned eight nominations, including for the prestigious album of the year and rap album of the year.

Amy Winehouse, 24, who has battled health and substance abuse problems and the incarceration of husband Blake Fielder-Civil, picked up six nods, including album of the year, song of the year and record of the year, and best new artist.

Winehouse was the subject of ridicule even on what could have been a positive day for the British jazz crooner. Announcing the Grammy nods, George Lopez joked, "Can somebody wake her up around 6 this afternoon and tell her?"

"Rehab" is Amy Winehouse's biggest hit. And where she needs to go.

Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and T-Pain were the other top earners with five nominations each. Artists with four each included Akon, Rihanna, Tim McGraw, John Newton, Ne-Yo, Rihanna, and Chris Daughtry.

In a race for record of the year with Amy Winehouse ("Rehab") are the likes of Beyoncé ("Irreplaceable"), Foo Fighters ("The Pretender"), Rihanna ("Umbrella") and Justin Timberlake ("What Goes Around Comes Around").
