Tonight marked the day where we finally got to hear who the Grammy’s though were the year’s best in music. The nomination show took place in Los Angeles as the music industries best came out to perform their hits and reveal this year’s batch of Grammy nominations. When it came time to announce the Best New Artist of the Year nominees, not everyone was pleased with the list and some are crying for a sub we all thought would be a part of the nomination list.
For those who did get nominated, it was a who’s who of young talents that burst onto the scene over the course of this summer. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis headlined the nominees which also included Kendrick Lamar and Ed Sheeran.
Here’s a list of the Bewst New Artist nominees for this year’s Grammy Awards:
- James Blake
- Kendrick Lamar
- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
- Kacey Musgraves
- Ed Sheeran
One name not on the list is Lorde, a new artist who many thought as a lock for the nomination. But when she was left off the list, her fans thumbed their noses at the snub and the omission is right now the rage of social media. But for those who were nominated, it’s going to be a tight race as all are deserving and anyone can win.
The 56th Grammy Awards will be held on January 26th in Los Angeles and the show will be broadcast on CBS.
