The 2019 Grammy nominations are here, and Zedd leads the pack for electronic dance producers, thanks to his pop crossover hit "The Middle."

The Grey and Maren Morris collaboration was a mainstay on mainstream radio, peaking at No. 5 on the Hot 100 in April. It is nominated for three Grammys, including record of the year, song of the year and best pop duo/group performance. 

The rest of the dance categories round out with club favorites. Nominees for best dance recording include Above & Beyond's "Norther Soul" feat. Richard Bedford, Disclosure's "Ultimatum" feat. Fatoumata Diawara, Fisher's "Losing It," Diplo and Mark Ronson's duo Silk City for "Electricity" feat. Dua Lipa, and Porter Robinson's Virtual Self for "Ghost Voices."

Best dance album honors Jon Hopkins' Singularity, Justice's live album Woman Worldwide, Sofi Tukker's Treehouse, Sophie's Oil Of Every Pearl's Un-Insides, and TOKiMONSTA's Lune Rouge. Best remixed recording nominations go to CID's take on LSD's "Audio," EDX's version of "How Long" by Charlie Puth, Cosmic Gate's remix of Gabriel and Dresden's "Only Road" feat. Sub Teal, Kaskade's rinse of Kygo's "Stargazing" with Justin Jesso, and Mura Masa's version of "Walking Away" by HAIM.
