The 2020 Grammy Nominations Have Been Announced

And they include Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga

After a minor hiccup which saw the Grammy’s website update its artist’s total number of nominations before the 2020 list was even released, we finally have the proper thing and it confirms what we already knew: that Billie Eilish and Lizzo rule all.

At 17-years-old, Billie Eilish has broken the record as the youngest artist to be nominated in all four of the most prestigious Grammy categories: record, album and song of the year, and best new artist, while Lizzo got the most number of nods overall with eight total, including all of the top four categories.

As far as snubs go, Taylor Swift was only nominated for one of the major categories, Halsey received nothing for her chart-topping single ‘Without Me’ and neither did Sam Smith for ‘Dancing With a Stranger’ and Solange was left off the list despite her critically acclaimed album When I Get Home. Boy and girl of the moment, Harry Styles and Selena Gomez, were both also left out but that’s because their new music came out too late and is eligible for 2021.

Below, the complete list of Grammy nominations.
