Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Six different artists have tied for the most Grammy Award nominations -- Kanye West, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons and fun.

Auerbach received five nominations as a member of the Keys and also is up for producer of the year, earning a spot at the top of the list as the Grammy's primetime television special came to his hometown of Nashville on Wednesday night.

The rockers were joined at the top of the list by hip-hop mainstays West and Jay-Z, along with indie pop band fun., who rode the success of its anthemic hit "We Are Young" to sweep the major categories. R&B singer Ocean and British folk-rock band Mumford & Sons rounded out the top of the list.
