CBS - The Grammy Awards will be handed out Sunday in Los Angeles.

This year many new artists are up for top awards.

"We are young"

That could be the theme of the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

"It's been an incredible year in music.It feels like alternative music is back."

This year, the spotlight isn't on veterans like Springsteen or Dylan.

It's about fun -- and the Black Keys, and Mumford and Sons, and Frank Ocean and Jack White. They're all nominated for "Album of the Year," and they're all in their 20s or 30s. In addition, Mumford and Sons, Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys, Frank Ocean and Fun.

Go into Sunday's ceremony with six nods apiece -- matching nominations earned by Hip-Hop heavyweights Jay-z and Kanye West, but this past year, attention was focused on the breakout stars -- most notably fun-- the power pop trio from New York-- and Frank Ocean, the New Orleans R-and-B singer who shot to stardom with this emotional performance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," where he sang about an unrequited love with another man, both Ocean and Fun are nominated for "Best New Artist," along with country multi-instrumentalist Hunter Hayes.

"It's awesome to have nominations for my debut record." Blues-rock group, Alabama Shakes.

(Reporter: Two years ago, what were you guys doing, weren't you working at the postal service?)

"Yes, I was delivering postal mail."

And folk-rock trio, The Lumineers...

"We went from sleeping in people's friend's houses, then going to six people in a hotel room, to now, Grammy Nominations on Sunday, look for Justin Timber lake's first Grammy performance in four years ... Rihanna's first solo turn at the Grammy since a physical altercation with Chris Brown caused her to cancel in 2009 ... And a collaboration featuring Bruno Mars, sting and Rihanna.
