Jazz musician Jon Batiste on Tuesday led the nominations for the Grammy Awards with 11 nods, followed by Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and HERE with eight pieces.
Batiste and Bieber will compete for the top prize – album of the year – along with Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, HERE, Kanye West, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, newcomers Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift, organizers said.
The Grammys, the highest honor in the music industry, will be presented at a ceremony in Los Angeles on January 31st.
The nominees in the top three categories – album of the year, song and record – were increased to 10 from 8 for the first time.
“Adding more nominees is one way to create a broader network for more music, more artists and more genres,” said Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr., who announced the change Tuesday.
Eilish, Rodrigo, Bieber and Batiste were also among the 10 nominees for this year’s record, along with the Swedish band Abbas’ new single, “I Still Have Faith in You”.
But Swift, who got a nod to best album for “Evermore”, was shut out of both this year’s record and this year’s song race.
The teenage phenomenon Rodrigo, 18, who burst onto the US charts in January when her single “Drivers License” went viral, received seven nods, including best new artist and for her debut album “Sour”.
