Second place in the standings come for Jay-Z who only gets three nominees this year. Beyoncé's "Black Parade" and "Savage" are in running for the record of the year. After Queen Bey , Taylor Swift , with six nominations, could win the title of best album of the year for the third time with "Folklore" . Six nominations also for Dua Lipa with "Future Nostalgia" .

Finally, Billie Eilish is nominated for the single "Everything I Wanted" and for the song "No Time To Die" from the James Bond movie, which makes the 18-year-old young artist the first in history to win in four main categories: best new artist, song of the year, recording of the year and best album.

There were also notable disappointments. The Weeknd was a favourite, but did not get any nominations. "The Grammys remain corrupt," he tweeted hours after the announcement. "You owe some transparency to me, my fans and the industry."
