THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" and Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" are Grammy contenders for song of the year.

Those songs, along with Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me," Maxwell's "Pretty Wings" and the Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody," were the first nominees announced for the 2010 Grammys on Wednesday, as the Recording Academy unveiled a handful of nominations for its 109 categories during a prime-time CBS special.

Also nominated were the Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, MGMT, Darryl Hall & John Oates and The Fray for best pop performance by a duo or group.

It was the second year in a row that the Recording Academy revealed its nominees during a televised concert; in the past, they had been announced during a morning news conference.

But Wednesday's special gave nominees the chance to perform, such as the Black Eyed Peas, who performed their ubiquitous hit, "I Gotta Feeling," as well as provided face time for CBS' stars, like LL Cool J, the rapper-actor who is the star of "NCIS: Los Angeles."

Other performers on the show included Nick Jonas and The Administration, R&B crooner Maxwell and country duo Sugarland.
