Lady Gaga's live HBO special Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden is nominated for five awards including Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special and a handful of technical categories. Justin Timberlake's appearance on Saturday Night Live in May earned the singer three nods – one for Outstanding Guest Actor and two in the Outstanding Original Music category for his "Not Gonna Sing Tonight" monologue tune and his Lonely Island team-up "3-Way (The Golden Rule)." (Lady Gaga also appeared on the "3-Way" song, but was not nominated because she did not have a writing credit.)

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
