Los Angeles: Soul sensation Adele says she`s speechless after garnering six Grammy Award nominations.

The 23-year-old `Someone Like You` hitmaker has received nods in categories including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

The news was a big boost for Adele, who was forced to cancel a string of shows to undergo surgery on her vocal cords last month and she`s taken to her website to thank fans for their support, reported MTV online.

"Just home from New York, that`s my main excuse for not posting a message sooner, but I`m also completely and utterly lost for words. A couple (of) days after finally being able to talk again I`m pretty speechless," she wrote in a post.

"Thank you so much to the academy for nominating this record for 6 Grammys!!! This has been the best year as it is but to end 2011 with this incredible achievement and honour is beyond anything I can express.

"Thank you to every single person who has taken a shining to this record, for making it have such an impact, this record has taken on a life of its own thanks to you. I made the record and you`ve made it what`s its become." she added.
