To help readers get a better sense of the breadth of the nominees and the wealth of recordings they've created over the last year, GRAMMY.com has prepared these field Roundups, which give quick details on the nominees in an easy-to-read format.We Belong Together," which Mariah Carey co-wrote with Johnta Austin, Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal, is this year's only SONG OF THE YEAR finalist that is also in the running for Record Of The Year. It's Carey's second Song Of The Year nomination, following "Vision Of Love" in 1990, which she co-wrote with Ben Margulies. U2 is nominated in this category for the third time with "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own." The band was nominated with "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" in 1987 and "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" in 2001. Bruce Springsteen is nominated for the third time with "Devils & Dust." The rock icon won in 1994 with the AIDS-themed "Streets Of Philadelphia" and was nominated in 2002 with the 9/11-inspired "The Rising." John Stephens, better known as John Legend, is nominated along with collaborator William Adams (Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas) for writing Legend's "Ordinary People." Bobby Boyd, Jeff Hanna and Marcus Hummon round out the category with "Bless The Broken Road," a country hit for Rascal Flatts.
