After some of the nominees were leaked this week, the official nominations for 62nd annual Grammy Awards is finally revealed, with Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Lil Nas X leading the list.
It was a big day for Lizzo, who received eight noms, the most nominations than any other artists this year, including Album of the Year (“Cuz I Love You”), Best New Artist, Song, and Record of the Year for her chart-topping hit “Truth Hurts.”
Though 2019 is a breakout year for Lizzo, “Truth Hurts” is in fact not a 2019 song. It came out in September 19, 2017 but only recently became popular via the TikTok video sharing app.
Also having a great day is 16 year old Billie Eilish, who received six nominations including the top four categories: Record, Album, Song and New Artist.
The record-breaking song “Old Town Road” helped Lil Nas X in receiving six nominations, including Album and Record of the Year. The song, assisted by a remix version featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, stayed at number one for nineteen consecutive weeks, surpassing “One Sweet Day” (Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men) and Despacito (Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee ft Justin Bieber).
The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards is set to Jan. 26, 2020. Alicia Keys will be hosting the show.
