The Grammy nominations are officially out and so are the artists reactions.
Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with 11, with The Weeknd following with nine, and Taylor Swift with seven. A slew of other expected artists made the list -- Alabama Shakes, Ed Sheeran and Drake -- but there were plenty other surprises, and quite a few newcomers.
But no matter if you've been nominated before or you're experiencing it for the first time, it's still just as exciting, so it's no surprise that the artists are taking to Twitter and Instagram to react to their noms.
Here are a few of our faves!
Ed might not have been expecting the noms, but we were. His track, "Thinking Out Loud," earned him three nominations including Record of The Year.
Meghan Trainor is "crying all day" and we don't blame her since she just got nominated for Best New Artist.
Elle King got the champagne flowing after learning about her Grammy nominations for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for "Ex's & Oh's."
John Legend may already have 9 Grammys, but adding four more for his Oscar-winning track, "Glory," would certainly cap off a pretty big year.
Diplo gave a shout-out to his fellow "Where Are Ü Now" collaborators, Justin Bieber and Skrillex, who got the nod for Best Dance Song. Diplo also picked up a nomination for Producer of the Year.
Justin has the potential to take home his very first Grammy for "Where Are Ü Now." The Best Dance Song nomination also marks his first in five years.
Kelly got some Grammy love in the form of two nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Album.
Newcomer James Bay racked up three nominations including Best New Artist and Best Rock Song for his hit "Hold Back The River." He told us, "“THIS IS COMPLETELY MIND BLOWING!! I am so overwhelmed and honored to receive 3 Grammy nominations. Thank you!”
This marks Gaga's 17th Grammy nomination and this one holds a special meaning since the song, "Til It Happens You You" was for "The Hunting Ground," a 2015 documentary about rape on college campuses in the U.S. Gaga wrote on Instagram that she was honored she and her co-writer, Diane Warren, received the nomination for Best Song Written for Visual Media and were "proud to be a part a movement that empowers rape victims into survivors."
Wiz has got a busy morning ahead of him after learning that he's been nominated for three Grammy's for "See You Again" with Charlie Puth. The rapper is up for Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written For Visual Media.
Tori Kelly may be left speechless by her Best New Artist nominee, but we aren't since she had a huge year with her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, debuting at #2 on the Billboard charts.
The two time nominee is looking to pick up awards in the Best New Artist and Best Country album categories. He told MTV News, "I am beyond humbled with these nominations. I am so grateful to the fans, the Nashville music community and the Recording Academy for their appreciation and recognition. This has been just the most amazing year."
