'Smash' Grammy Nomination: 'Let Me Be Your Star' Nominated

"Smash" has picked up a Grammy nomination.

The NBC drama about the making of a Broadway musical got its first nomination for "Let Me Be Your Star," in the Best Song Written For Visual Media category. "Let Me Be Your Star" is an original song that made its debut in the show's first episode. Written by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman and performed by Katharine McPhee (Karen Cartwright) and Megan Hilty (Ivy Lynn), the song became the show's unofficial anthem.

"It is wonderful to be recognized for our work on 'Smash,' but there is no doubt that without the thrilling performances of Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, our song is just a bunch of words and notes," Shaiman and Wittman said in a statement to HuffPost TV. "We are lucky guys."

"Let Me Be Your Star" was previously nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category.
