Chicago shines again on Grammy nomination night. Kanye scored six nods tonight, mostly for production and co-writing. Lupe Fiasco, however, earned his four nominations based on how cool is his album "The Cool."

On the list of other Chicago honorees, Jennifer Hudson was nominated for best R&B album ("Jennifer Hudson"), best R&B vocal performance ("Spotlight") and best R&B performance by a duo or group ("I'm His Only Woman" with Fantasia) and former Chicagoans Ministry got a nod for best metal performance ("Under My Thumb" from "Cover Up").

The local Latin music group Alacranes Musical were nominated for best banda album ("Tu Inspiracion"), and several honors in the classical category went to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, including best engineered album, producer of the year and best orchestral performance.
