(ANI): American singer Miley Cyrus" song 'The Climb", which is a
single from her Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack, has been
removed from the Grammy race. The song, which had been written by
Jessi Alexander and Jon Mabe, had received a Grammy nod for best
song written for a soundtrack.
But it was unexpectedly announced on December 10 that the tune
has been pulled because it was not specifically penned for the
movie, thereby making it ineligible for the award. The nomination
will now go to “All Is Love", by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
The song -- which received the next highest number of votes -- was
written for 'Where the Wild Things Are". The Grammy site does
reflect the change, but a spokesperson for O"s label confirmed the
news to MTV.
“In an unexpected twist, one of the announced Grammy candidates
for Best Song written for a Soundtrack has been disqualified after
the fact," Us magazine quoted Matt LaMotte, of O"s label Interscope
Geffen A&M, as saying in a statement. “The nomination then goes
to the song with the next-highest initial vote count, which is
Karen O and the Kids" 'All Is Love"," he added
