The 2020 Grammy Nominations List is Here

It’s here!! The 2020 Grammy’s nominations list just dropped, and there’s a lot to talk about.

Leading the nominations list is Lizzo with 8 nominations in every major category, which is a BIG deal considering that for the past decade she was a struggling artist and that just a year ago, she wasn’t a household name. She’s leading the parade of new young artists like Billie Eilish (17) and Lil Nas X(20), who have 6 nominations each – both also barely known just a year ago.

These new artists are followed on the nominations list by artists who already have Grammy’s, including Ariana Grande, who has one Grammy award and is nominated for 5 this year, including record and album of the year.

Compared to everyone mentioned above, Taylor Swift has been around the Grammy’s longer than anyone with 10 Grammys under her belt. Once upon a time, she was up for ‘Best New Artist’ in 2007, and won her first four Grammys a decade ago in 2009. For 2020, she’s up for 3 awards, including Album of the Year for “Lover”.

It also probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” is up for Song of Year, and that “it” couple Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello are up for Best Pop Duo with their hit “Señorita”.

You’ll also recognize more artists like The Jonas Brothers, Post Malone, Bon Iver, and 23-time-Grammy-winner Beyonce.

Who are you rooting for?? Check out the entire list of nominees below!
