From Lizzo to Lil Nas, new kids on the block rule Grammys

From Lizzo to Lil Nas, new kids on the block rule Grammys

She also recently won 2 Soul Train awards for "Juice" as Video of the Year and Cuz I Love You as Album of The Year.

On his Instagram, the rapper showed off his nominations for the 2020 awards ceremony.

Mill released his first album, "Dreams and Nightmares", in 2012, and has gone on to have a successful career as a rapper, despite being incarcerated for several years.

The 31-year-old star has been recognized for her incredible success with a big presence on the shortlist for next year's ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, including the best new artist and best urban contemporary album for the deluxe edition of Cuz I Love You. Nas X's hit remained at the top of the charts for an impressive 19 weeks, but Eilish played the Bad Guy, so to speak, and knocked him off to claim No 1 overall. She has been nominated for a total of four Grammy awards for 2020. "Old Town Road" then had the top spot taken by Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy".

Billie may only be 17 years old, but that's not stopping her from breaking any records-in fact, it's just another thing that's helping her get there.

The singer leads all contenders with eight total nominations heading to the awards show.

Personally, I would like Lizzo to win for the song "Truth Hurts" because I find it an empowering song that anyone can listen to hype themselves up, but because of popularity, I could see Billie Eilish or Ariana Grande winning.

There was no immediate comment from Irish police or indications of the people's nationalities. The 16 are believed to be all men, aged approximately between 20 and 40 years old.

Last year, the Recording Academy expanded the four major categories from five nominees to eight, a bid to diversify and respond to critics bemoaning the underrepresentation of women.

While an increasing number of stars have come out in recent years, country music is often associated with Christianity and conservative views on gender roles and sexuality.

Lizzo's hit single "Truth Hurts" has also earned her a lot of recognition, with nods in the record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance categories.

Meanwhile, single "Could've Been", featuring Bryson Tiller, was nominated for Best R&B Performance (the competition there includes Daniel Caesar and Brandy; Lizzo featuring Gucci Mane; Lucky Daye; and Anderson.Paak Featuring André 3000) and Best R&B Song.

Those nominated for Album of the year, the most prestigious of all the accolades, include Bon Iver, Lana Del Rey, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, H.E.R, Lil Nas X, Lizzo and Vampire Weekend.

Singer Gabriella Wilson, aka H.E.R., performs at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on February 10, 2019, in Los Angeles.
