Kanye takes on Amy for big awards

Kanye West and Amy Winehouse

Kanye West and Amy Winehouse might have to make some extra space at home after being nominated for lots of new awards.

They're among the top music stars from all over the world hoping to win big at the Grammys, when they are handed out in America in February 2008.

Winning a Grammys is a really big deal, as they are some of the most important music awards in the world.

Other acts to get lots of nominations are Rihanna, Foo Fighters, Timbaland and Justin Timberlake.

They all picked up five nominations, as did R&B singer T-Pain.

Top nominated artists
Kanye West - 8
Amy Winehouse - 6
Rihanna - 5
Foo Fighters - 5
Timbaland - 5
Justin Timberlake - 5
T-Pain 5
Some of the Grammys do seem a little strange - there is a record of the year category and song of the year too.

Those are two of the biggest prizes on offer, and Winehouse could be bringing both of them back to the UK for her track Rehab.

Her album Back to Black could also be a winner, where she is up against West, Foo Fighters, Vince Gill and Herbie Hancock.
