Kanye West has received the highest number of nominations at next year's 54th annual Grammy Awards, with seven nods.

The rapper is vying for gongs for his solo work and tracks from 'Watch The Throne', his collaboration album with Jay-Z, while Foo Fighters have also racked up six nominations.

Adele is also among the nominees, shortlisted for Album Of The Year for '21' and Best Solo Pop Performance.

'Rolling In The Deep' is also up for Record Of The Year, where she'll go up against the likes of Mumford and Sons ('The Cave') and Bon Iver ('Holocene').

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards are due to take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on February 12.

Lady Antebellum won five awards at this year's ceremony, while Arcade Fire became the first indie act to win Album Of The Year for 'The Suburbs'. Jay-Z, Lady Gaga and Jeff Beck walked away with three awards each, with The Black Keys and Eminem both bagging a brace of prizes.
