Song of the Year nominees at the 2013 Grammy Awards include Carly Rae Jepsen, fun., Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheeran and Miguel Pimentel.
The Song of the Year category at the Grammys "recognizes the songwriter(s)." That's in different from the Record of the Year category, which "recognizes the artist’s performance as well as the overall contributions of the producer(s), recording engineer(s) and/or mixer(s) if other than the artist," according to Grammy.org.
Jepsen, who was not nominated for Best New Artist, did receive a nomination for Song of the Year for "Call Me Maybe"; Clarkson was honored for "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill Me)"; fun. was hailed for "We Are Young"; Ed Sheeran was singled out for "The A-Team"; and Pimentel was a surprise choice for "Adorn," off his second album, "Kaleidoscope Dream."
At the 54th annual Grammy Awards in 2012, Adele won Song of the Year for "Rolling in the Deep."
It was expected that Bruce Springsteen, Mumford & Sons or Taylor Swift could compete in this category, but the big names failed to make the cut.

This amalgam of rockers and hip-hop stars perform "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" to honor the late MCA. CBS, however, cuts them off with an rundown of the night's sponsors. Classy.
