Janelle Monáe)," was named in the "Record of the Year," "Song of the Year," and "Best Pop Duo/Group Performance" categories. What's more, producer Jeff Bhasker is among the "Producer of the Year, Non-Classical" nominees, specifically honoring his work on "SOME NIGHTS."

fun. capped their extraordinary year with the worldwide release of their own "iTUNES SESSION" EP. Recorded at the storied Capitol Records Studio in Los Angeles, the EP (available exclusively on the iTunes Store) pairs unique versions of "SOME NIGHTS" favorites like the latest single, "Carry On," alongside a genuinely special cover of Van Morrison's classic "Queen of the Slipstream."

The release of "Carry On" was heralded by fun.'s stunning performance of the track on NBC's Saturday Night Live. With the song in the top 10 at alternative radio, the companion video is already proving an online favorite, drawing nearly 6.5 million individual views. In addition, fun.'s SNL performances of both "Carry On" and "Some Nights" can be viewed at the band's official website,
