Each year’s Grammy nominations are a highly anticipated event for music fans. Often, people are nearly as excited to see who was nominated as they are to see who actually wins the award for each category.
An update to several artists’ pages on the official Grammy website yesterday led fans to speculate that some of their favorite artists might have snagged some nominations this year.
Music fans spent much of yesterday speculating as to whether the updates were an early leak of the nominations for the 62nd annual Grammy awards, or just a mistake.
As it turns out, they were reflective of the number of nominations for each of the artists. For example, Billie Eilish received her first 6 nominations this year; the same number listed for her yesterday.
Lizzo also received her first 8 nominations this year.
Ariana Grande secured 5 more nominations this year, bringing her to 11 total.
Barbara Streisand now sits at an amazing 46 nominations (and 8 wins).Â
John Legend netted 2 nominations, bringing him up to 31 with 10 wins!
Lil Nas X also received his first 6 nominations this year.Â
The Recording Academy has not yet acknowledged the error, but is undoubtedly aware of it. The updated numbers were quickly reverted yesterday after the news started to spread.
Whether the Academy recognizes the error officially or not, this year has an excellent lineup of artists nominated for Grammys.
