The song that was too profane for radio is now a contender for one of the Grammys’ highest honors.

Cee Lo’s “(Expletive) You” was nominated for song of the year, along with Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” (featuring Rihanna), Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me” and “Beg Steal Or Borrow” by Ray LaMontagne (lah-mon-TAYN’).

Cee Lo’s “(Expletive) You” was an instant viral hit but had to be changed for radio to “Forget You.”

The announcement was made as part of the Grammys’ hourlong live nominations special on CBS from Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

The Grammys will be awarded Sunday, Feb. 13, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast live on CBS.
