SZA, a US musician, is in first place with nine nominations, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best R&B Performance for Kill Bill, an R&B ballad disguised as an anthem of revenge.
Swift’s Midnights and Cyrus’s Endless Summer Vacation are among the other contenders for the category Album of the Year award, which also includes her second studio album SOS.
In addition to American singer-songwriter and composer Jon Batiste for World Music Radio and indie supergroup Boygenius for “The Record”, they will be up against fierce competition from US singers Olivia Rodrigo for “Guts”, Janelle Monae for “The Age Of Pleasure”, and Lana Del Rey for “Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd”.
If Swift wins Album of the Year, she will create the history at the event to be the first person to win the trophy four times under this category.
The pop sensation, who is tied with Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder for the record three times as a solo female winner, has the potential to create history with her tenth studio album, “Midnights”.
Along with Swift, Rodrigo, Cyrus, and Billie Eilish, each of them has six nominations. They will compete for Song of the Year and Record of the Year, respectively, for the songs “Anti-Hero,” “Vampire,” “Flowers,” and “What Was I Made For?”
The popular song “On My Mama” by US R&B and pop artist Victoria Monet is another contender for the coveted Record of the Year award.
At the age of 80, Canadian-American singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is going to create history by attending the awards event live for the first time.
Alongside several celebrities like SZA, Eilish, Travis Scott, and Lipa, the nine-time Grammy winner leads the performance. She has been selected for the Best Folk category for her 2023 album “Midnights”.
