Grammy Nominations 2022: See the Full List

    The 2022 Grammy Award nominations have been announced. Jon Batiste leads this year’s nominations with 11 in total, while Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish both snagged seven. ABBA, Arooj Aftab, Arlo Parks, Low, Japanese Breakfast, Selena Gomez, and soccer mommy are among this year’s first-time nominees. Check out the full list below.

    Since last year’s ceremony, the Recording Academy made a number of changes to its selection process, including eliminating nearly all so-called ‘secret’ committees and adding two new categories, Música Urbana Album and Global Music Performance.
