Grammy nominations day is almost here. The Recording Academy will announce the nominations for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards live from the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live in Los Angeles and as part of Latin Grammy Week tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET. The event will stream live on live.Grammy.com and on the Academy’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok channels.
At long last, we’ll have answers to 14 burning questions that have kept us up nights for months.
The answers to some questions are so obvious that we’ll dispense with them right here and not even put them on our list.
Will Harry Styles finally land a nomination in a Big Four category? Yes. And most likely in each of the three top categories – album, record and song of the year.
Are Beyoncé and Adele headed for a rematch in the Big Three categories? It sure looks like it. The superstars went head-to-head in each of the Big Three categories six years ago. They are likely to square off again this year with their albums 30 and Renaissance and their hit singles “Easy on Me” and “Break My Soul.”
Will Kendrick Lamar be nominated for album of the year? He will. Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers would be his fourth studio album to be nominated, which would put him in a tie with Ye (a.k.a. Kanye West) for the most nods in this category by a rapper (as a lead artist). And unlike Ye, Lamar’s nominations will be for four consecutive studio albums.
Will Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti become the first Spanish-language album to receive an album of the year nomination? It will. Related factoid: It will become the first album to receive album of the year nods at both the Grammys and the Latin Grammys.
With those “no brainer” questions out of the way, here are 14 burning Grammy questions that aren’t so easily answered.
