2020 Grammy Awards: Nominations & Winners List

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards is scheduled to be held in January 2020 and all the nominations have been announced. It comes as little surprise that female musicians lead the list of nominations for 2020 Grammy Awards. Even more so, last year’s awards ceremony host Alicia Keys will return to host this year’s ceremony as well.

Lizzo received the most number of nominations for the upcoming awards show with a total of 8, surpassing any other artist. Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X received the second-highest count of individual nominations of 6 each. During the eligibility period of October 1, 2018, to August 31, 2019, Lizzo had her third studio album ‘Cuz I Love You’ released, Billie Eilish had her debut studio album ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’ released and Lil Nas X had her new album ‘7’ released.

However, 2020 Grammy awards nominations aren’t without surprises and snubs. According to NYTimes, Taylor Swift’s 2019 album ‘Lover,’ that had the biggest opening week sales, is not nominated for ‘Album of the Year.’ That being said, Lil Nas X’s new album ‘7’ is an extended play (EP) with 8 tracks, and it is nominated in the above category, most likely built around the success “Old Town Road (Remix)” single had. Another notable snub is of Halsey who had one of the biggest singles “Without Me” in the world in 2019.

Below is the complete list of nominations for 2020 Grammy Awards and we will have the list updated with winners once they are announced on January 26, 2020.

Billie Eilish emerged as the most honoured artist at the Grammys 2020, winning coveted categories such as ‘Song of the Year,’ ‘Record of the Year,’ ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best New Artist,’ while her brother Finneas won ‘Best Producer’ category.
