The 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards Nominations

-

Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan, alongside Academy Chair of the Board of Trustees and renowned record producer Harvey Mason Jr., as well as GRAMMY Awards host Alicia Keys and past two-time GRAMMY nominee Bebe Rexha, today revealed The 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards nominations for select categories. The GRAMMY Awards nominations are led by Lizzo with eight, Billie Eilish with six, and Lil Nas X with six.

As the only peer-selected music award, the GRAMMY Awards are voted on by the Recording Academy’s membership body of music makers, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers and engineers. The 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live from Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT) on CBS.

“I am in complete awe of the inspiring nominees who have poured their hearts and souls into their craft, and in turn, have provided fans worldwide a year of music that changed us, stirred our emotions and inspired us to do more,” said Dugan. “Today’s announcement reflects a new era for the Recording Academy—an army of engaged members that welcomes diversity, embraces creativity and champions young musicians on the rise. It’s shaping up to be a year of firsts, and I can promise that The 62nd GRAMMY Awards will pack the same punch as this year’s nominees. I am proud to march forward alongside our members and nominated artists.”

This year’s nominees were selected from more than 20,000 submissions across 84 categories, and reflect the wide range of artistic innovation that defined the year in music (Oct. 1, 2018–August 31, 2019). The final round of GRAMMY voting takes place Dec. 9, 2019–Jan. 3, 2020.
