  • Adele sweeps Grammy Awards

The Compton emcee's Black Panther track "All The Stars" with SZA obtained noms for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Song Written For Visual Media, and Best Rap/Sung Performance.

A possible factor in the increase in female representation was the Recording Academy's decision to expand the shortlists from five to eight in the big-four categories: best album, song, record and new artist.

Kelsea Ballerini, whose Unapologetically was nominated for Best Country Album, shared a moving post in which she explained that while she had accepted the fact that her album wasn't critically acclaimed, she was thrilled to have been recognized by the Recording Academy.

Mac Miller, who died of an accidental overdose earlier this year, received his first-ever Grammy nomination for his album "Swimming", according to Billboard. K. Dot picked up 8 nods, including Album Of The Year for Black Panther: The Album.

Grande, who has never won a Grammy, was only nominated for best pop vocal album for "Sweetener" and best pop solo performance for "God is a Woman".

Entertainment Weekly's "Entertainers Of The Year" recipients Cardi B and Childish Gambino both racked up five nominations.

The Carters did get two nominations for R&B and best music video, while perennial favorite Taylor Swift earned just one nomination for best pop vocal album. On Twitter, Smyers and bandmate Shay Mooney revealed that they had met six years ago on December 7, the same day they were nominated for their very first Grammy Awards.

- Best dance/electronic album: "Singularity", Jon Hopkins; "Woman Worldwide", Justice; "Treehouse", Sofi Tukker; "Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides", SOPHIE; "Lune Rouge", TOKiMONSTA. Both behind-the-scenes music creators netted nods for Album Of The Year.


Six of the eight 2019 nominees for Best New Artist are women. The other two nominations went to Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey for The Middle and The Joke from Brandi Carlile.

"Each of this year's nominees is deserving of this honour and I look forward to the announcement of the victor in the new year", Grange said.

Colleyville-bred Demi Lovato received one nomination, for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Fall in Line", a collaboration with Christina Aguilera. But three more nods - including and especially "Best Rock Album" - is deeply confusing, to say the least.

"If you're looking for lyrics, if you're looking to cry, if you're looking to think about life, don't listen to hip-hop", he said previous year, which is something a person would only say if they're benefiting from a layered, historically significant genre that they fundamentally don't understand, a person who's ignorant about black music and culture.

Toronto music scholar and past Grammy-winner Rob Bowman is part of the team behind best historical album contender Any Other Way, a compilation of music by 1960s soul singer Jackie Shane.

Kendrick Lamar has won 12 Grammy Awards during his career.
