Lizzo, Billie Eilish, And Lil Nas X Rule The 2020 Grammy Noms

There’s a little something for everyone

If your jaw didn't drop to the floor, did we see the same Grammy nominations?

The Recording Academy revealed its massive list of nominees for the 62nd Grammy Awards on Wednesday (November 20). This year, it looks like Lizzo and Billie Eilish are in high demand. It makes sense though, since both singers have been absolutely everywhere this year. If you hear the term "DNA Test," there's a huge chance that, if you're not in a scientific field, it's in reference to her now multiple Grammy-nominated breakout single "Truth Hurts." It scored nods for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and Lizzo herself is the year's most-nominated artist with eight nods. Eilish's "Bad Guy," meanwhile, is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year, with Eilish herself up for six in total. And there's more.

After a whirlwind year of massive success, Lil Nas X securing a nomination for Best New Artist feels like the perfect storybook climax. Going from "Old Town Road" being kicked off country charts to being remixed with Billy Ray Cyrus (now nominated for Record of the Year) and becoming a Best New Artist nominee, it's clear that Lil Nas X is an undeniable force. Like Eilish, he has six noms to boast for himself, too.

This extremely wide-open field of nominees makes for an interesting period of speculation as we await the actual show, which takes place in January. Will Beyonce's "Spirit" overcome Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" or Taylor Swift's "You Need To Calm Down?" Can 21 Savage's I Am > I Was snatch victory from rising rapper YBN Cordae, who's secured a Grammy nomination for his debut album? We'll find out in a few months.

Check out the list of nominees below (see the full list here) and make sure to tune in to the show on January 26.
