The nominees for the 2020 Grammys were announced today! Taylor received three nominations – Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album! The show takes place on January 26, 2020 on CBS. Congrats Taylor!
The Grammys have announced the first nominees for its 2020 show, and contenders include Beyoncé and Taylor Swift.
Recording Academy President and CEO Deborah Dugan, who started the job earlier this year, announced at a news conference in New York City on Wednesday morning that Beyoncé’s “Spirit” and Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” will compete for best pop solo performance. Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts,” Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” and Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” — three songs that reached the No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart — are also nominated for the award.
The Grammys will announce more of its nominees at the conference and then on CBS. The show has 84 categories. The 2020 Grammys will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 26.Source
