Grammy nominations list 2020: Who is nominated at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards in all 84 categories?

The 62nd Annual Grammy Award nominations were announced on Wednesday morning, November 20, at 8:20am Eastern (5:20am Pacific). So who made the cut? Scroll down to see the list.

The nominations press conference took place at Studio 43 at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City and was led by recording academy president and CEO Deborah Dugan, chair of the Board of Trustees Harvey Mason Jr., Grammy winner Alicia Keys and Grammy nominee Bebe Rexha. It streamed live on Grammy.com.

“CBS This Morning” then simulcast additional category announcements with Keys joining host Gayle King. Immediately after that the full list of nominees in all 84 categories were sent out via press release and made available on the official Grammy website and through the recording academy’s social media accounts. Those categories honor a wide range of achievements in the recording arts from pop, rock, R&B and rap to spoken word, comedy, classical and Americana. The top four general field categories — Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist — honor the very best in all genres of music.

Keys has won a whopping 15 Grammys over the course of her career so far, which makes her one of the five most awarded female artists of all time, tied with Adele and trailing only Alison Krauss (27), Beyonce (23) and Aretha Franklin (18). In 2019 she hosted the Grammys telecast for the very first time, and she’ll be returning as emcee when the awards are handed out on January 26, 2020.

Rexha hasn’t won a Grammy yet, but she’s just getting started. In 2019 she earned her first two nominations: Best New Artist and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Meant to Be,” her collaboration with Florida Georgia Line.
