Amber Riley says it feels "really weird" to be nominated for two Grammy awards.

The actress is nominated alongside her fellow Glee cast members for best compilation soundtrack album for motion picture, television or other media, and for best pop performance by a duo or group for their rendition of Journey's Don't Stop Believin.

Amber said: "It's weird because I feel like we're not necessarily a singing group. We just do it for television, so to be recognized as a group... it's just is really weird. I guess we weren't really expecting it being on a TV show."

Strangely, two of the songs the Glee cast are up against in the latter category are ones they have covered themselves: Train's Hey, Soul Sister, and Paramore's The Only Exception.

"It's really weird because these are people who have actually helped the show," 24-year-old Amber said.

The cast of Glee are also nominated for best breakthrough international act at this year's Brit Awards.
