Lizzo led the pack with eight nominations, including “Truth Hurts” for Record and Song of the Year, and Cuz I Love You for Album of the Year. Eilish, who garnered six nominations, was also nominated in those three categories: “Bad Guy” for Record and Song of the Year and When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? for Album of the Year. And Lil Nas X, also up for six awards, scored a Record of the Year look for his smash “Old Town Road” remix with Billy Ray Cyrus, while his debut EP 7 was nominated for Album of the Year.

Lizzo, Eilish and Lil Nas X will face off against a variety of more experienced acts in the Album of the Year category, which also features Bon Iver’s i, i, Lana Del Rey’s Norman F---ing Rockwell, Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next, H.E.R.’s I Used to Know Her and Vampire Weekend’s Father of the Bride.

The Record of the Year category boasts Bon Iver for “Hey, Ma,” Grande for “7 Rings,” H.E.R. for “Hard Place,” Khalid for “Talk” and Post Malone and Swae Lee for “Sunflower.” And Song of the Year features Lady Gaga’s other A Star Is Born hit, “Always Remember Us This Way,” Tanya Tucker’s “Bring My Flowers Now,” H.E.R.’s “Hard Place,” Taylor Swift’s “Lover,” Lana Del Rey’s “Norman F---ing Rockwell” and Lewis Capaldi’s “Truth Hurts.”

Along with Lizzo, Eilish and Lil Nas X, the Best New Artist category features several other breakout performers including Maggie Rogers, Rosalía, Tank and the Bangas, Yola and Black Pumas.

In recent years, the Recording Academy has been slammed for failing to properly recognize and reward groundbreaking work from black performers — including Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé — and women. At the 2018 ceremony, just one woman was presented an award during the televised broadcast. Following that ceremony, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow made his now infamous comment that women need “to step up.”

Following that disaster, the Grammys have taken a series of steps in an attempt to increase voter diversity, inviting 900 new members to the organization, changing parts of the voting membership process and appointing the first female CEO of the Recording Academy, Deborah Dugan. Perhaps as a result of these changes, or due to increased scrutiny, this year’s coveted general categories are carefully balanced by gender. (Although this is less true in some of the genre categories, like hip-hop.) And while the Grammys have frequently rewarded long-established performers at the expense of vital young acts, voters this year seemed particularly attuned to 2019’s fast-rising stars.

Like other major award shows, the Grammys have also faced a decline in live viewership this decade, especially in the key 18- to 49-year-old demographic. It may not be a coincidence that the Recording Academy was meticulous about throwing 2020 nominations in the general categories to stars who have proved their widespread appeal in the last eight months.

Take Record of the Year: The singles by Grande, Post Malone, Eilish, Khalid and Lizzo all reached Number One at Top 40 radio. Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” is one of the most successful singles in history, and H.E.R. actually performed her Grammy-nominated single “Hard Place” live at the 2019 ceremony — it has already been road-tested. The only song in the category that seems like an outlier is Bon Iver’s “Hey, Ma,” but even Bon Iver is a pretty safe choice for the Recording Academy — he has been nominated for five Grammys and won two.

Other top Grammy nominees for 2020 include Beyoncé, who notched four nods for her work on her Lion King soundtrack, The Gift, and Tucker, who nabbed three more nods to accompany her Song of the Year look, including Best Country Album for her comeback LP, While I’m Livin’ (Tucker has been nominated for 10 Grammys since 1973, but has yet to win one).
