Additionally, Eilish, alongside Labrinth, is in contention for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance award for their collaboration “Never Felt So Alone,” solidifying her as one of the most nominated artists of the night.
Eilish shares the spotlight with Olivia Rodrigo, who, at the age of 20, also received six nominations. Rodrigo’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, “Guts,” has earned her recognition in the Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album categories. The lead single from the album, “Vampire,” has secured nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance. Additionally, Rodrigo’s “Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl” has earned her a nomination in the Best Rock Song category. The impressive number of nominations for both Eilish and Rodrigo positions them as standout contenders for the prestigious awards.

She described the nominations as “such an honor” and expressed pleasure in being recognized by the music community in such a significant way. Rodrigo shared her gratitude, stating, “I’m very grateful.”
She also highlighted the joy of seeing many of her friends receive nominations, noting that it adds to the excitement.

At 28 years old, Dua Lipa is no stranger to the Grammy Awards, having previously won three times and graced the stage as a performer. This year, she is nominated for Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media for her track “Dance the Night,” featured on the Barbie soundtrack.
The upcoming ceremony will feature Trevor Noah as the host for the fourth consecutive year. The 39-year-old comedian, also nominated for Best Comedy Album, expressed his excitement about the honor during an episode of his podcast, “What Now? With Trevor Noah.” He shared, “It’s a lot of fun. I enjoy the Grammys because I get to watch the show in person and then experience and comment on it in person while it’s happening.” Noah’s hosting role adds an extra layer of anticipation to the upcoming event.
