Grammy nominations 2020: Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X lead the pack

Singers Alicia Keys and Bebe Rexha, as well as TV host Gayle King, revealed the nominations for some of the Grammy’s top categories, including Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

The 2020 Grammy nominations were announced on Wednesday morning, and Lizzo garnered the most nominations — a whopping eight — while Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X followed closely behind with six each.

CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King invited Grammy host Alicia Keys and two-time nominee Bebe Rexha on the show on Wednesday morning to help announce the nominees.

After much success at last year’s Grammy Awards, Ariana Grande and H.E.R. have once again been honoured with five nods each. The two are matched by Recording Academy newcomer Finneas O’Connell, who is also the older brother and producer of Eilish.

Canadian chart-toppers Michael Bublé and Shawn Mendes made Canadians proud, too, with each picking up a nomination for the upcoming ceremony.

Bublé, 44, goes up against the likes of Barbra Streisand and John Legend in Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, while Mendes, 21, pairs up with girlfriend Camila Cabello for a joint Best Pop Duo Performance nomination thanks to Señorita.
