Oren Lavie, an Israeli living in the US, is among the nominees for a Grammy in the Best Short Form Music Video category for "Her Morning Elegance," alongside such pop luminaries as Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas and Depeche Mode. The clip for the song was shot in stop-motion animation, with roughly 3,000 still shots combined to animate the "live-action" film. "Her Morning Elegance" became an international sensation after it was featured in a commercial for Chevrolet Malibu and has racked up almost 9 million views on YouTube to date. In March Lavie put out his debut album, titled The Opposite Side of the Sea. Beyoncé led the Grammy nominations chart with 10 nods, while 19-year-old country music sensation Taylor Swift garnered eight. Another diva was nominated in three categories: Lady Gaga. The eccentric entertainer, who had five nominations overall, garnered a best album mention for her debut CD, The Fame, while her Poker Face got nominations for record and song of the year. Other nominees for album of the year were the Black Eyed Peas for The E.N.D. and Dave Matthews Band's Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King. The Black Eyed Peas, Maxwell and Kanye West got six nominations each, while Jay-Z and DJ David Guetta got five. The Grammys will be presented on January 31 in Los Angeles.
