GRAMMY NOMINEES

Melbourne's Nervo girls, Olivia and Mim are among the nominees for the 2010 Grammy Awards, announced overnight in the United States. The girls co-wrote the David Guetta/Kelly Rowland track 'When Love Takes Over', which has been nominated in the category of Best Dance Recording. They will, however, be up against some pretty stiff competition from Madonna, Britney, Black Eyed Peas and Gaga. Keith Urban is also nominated this year - in the category of Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Collaboration With Vocals.
