Keys, who has won 15 Grammy Awards, was honored at Variety‘s Power of Women event in New York last April.

It promises to be a big show: Kendrick Lamar led the nominations with eight nods recognizing his work for the “Black Panther” soundtrack, including the hit song “All the Stars” with SZA. Drake is right on his tails with seven nominations, and producer Boi-1da and Americana singer Brandi Carlile are just behind them with six apiece.

Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino, Maren Morris, R&B newcomer H.E.R., and producer Sounwave all notched five noms.

In a departure from last year, in which Jay-Z was the only artist to score nods in the top three categories, Drake, Lamar, and Carlile all garnered nominations for record, song, and album of the year. Drake’s single “God’s Plan” and his album “Scorpion” are both recognized; Lamar’s “All the Stars” and the “Black Panther” soundtrack he curated are vying for the top categories; and Carlile’s song “The Joke,” along with her album “By the Way, I Forgive You,” nabbed top nominations as well.

Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy,” H.E.R.’s self-titled album, Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” Janelle Monáe’s “Dirty Computer,” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Golden Hour” round out the category for album of the year.

In 2012, however, she received the Grammys’ Lifetime Achievement Award. Ross will take the Grammy’s stage just days after kicking off her new Las Vegas residency, “Diamond Diana,” at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas.
