The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards promises to be a solid reminder of the year’s most inescapable hits with nominees that were both widely beloved and memed to the heavens. Lizzo leads the nominations this year with eight, while Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X follow closely behind with six each. The three mega stars were the chief sources of this year’s biggest entries into the current pop culture zeitgeist, and each have the potential to take home some major awards, including Best New Artist, Record Of The Year, and Album Of The Year. The Pop category was notably dominated by the women, recognizing Eilish, Lizzo, Swift, Beyonce, and Ariana Grande. Conversely, women were mostly absent from all the rap categories, with the exception of one nomination for the song “Clout,” which features Cardi B. If anyone needs a little help locating some particularly skilled female lyricists who happened to kill it in 2019, we have more than a few suggestions. On the bright side, other nominees throughout the categories include some solid AVC favorites, including Tank And The Bangas, Brittany Howard, H.E.R, and Vampire Weekend. The Grammy nominees were announced on CBS This Morning with the help of the ceremony’s returning host Alicia Keyes and two-time nominee Bebe Rexha. The ceremony itself will air on January 26, 2020 on CBS.See a partial list of the nominees below. A full list can be found on the Grammys website.Record Of The Year“Hey, Ma,” Bon Iver“Bad Guy,” Billie Eilish“7 Rings,” Ariana Grande“Hard Place,” H.E.R.“Talk,” Khalid“Old Town Road,” Lil Nas X Featuring Billy Ray Cyrus“Truth Hurts,” Lizzo“Sunflower,” Post Malone & Swae LeeAlbum Of The Year“I, I,” Bon Iver“Norman F—ing Rockwell!,” Lana Del Rey“When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” Billie Eilish“Thank U, Next,” Ariana Grande“I Used To Know Her,” H.E.R.“7,” Lil Nas X“Cuz I Love You” (Deluxe) , Lizzo“Father of the Bride,” Vampire WeekendSong Of The Year“Always Remember Us This Way” — Natalie Hemby, Lady Gaga, Hillary Lindsey & Lori McKenna, songwriters (Lady Gaga)“Bad Guy” — Billie Eilish O’Connell & Finneas O’Connell, songwriters (Billie Eilish)“Bring My Flowers Now” — Brandi Carlile, Phil Hanseroth, Tim Hanseroth & Tanya Tucker, songwriters (Tanya Tucker)“Hard Place” — Ruby Amanfu, Sam Ashworth, D.
