SZA, Billie Eilish claim first awards


SZA, Billie Eilish claim first awards

And the Grammy goes to…

It’s music’s favorite night of the year, the 66th Grammy Awards. Brace yourself for a night where the ladies will steal the spotlight and outshining their male counterparts in this year’s nominations.

SZA leads the charge with a whopping nine nominations for her album “SOS” and the chart-topping track “Kill Bill.”

The premiere ceremony will award 80 Grammys, and SZA and Phoebe Bridgers have already claimed the first Grammy of the night with Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Ghost in the Machine.”

“Barbie” didn’t just conquer the box office but also the Grammy nominations, securing 11 nods and dominating the visual media song category.

At the premiere ceremony, “Barbie” got its first win as Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” won a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Victoria Monét won her very first career Grammy. Her album  “JAGUAR II,” snagged the award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, at the premiere ceremony.

Taylor Swift, the reigning lady of the year, boasts six nominations, including album of the year for “Midnights,” and song and record of the year for “Anti-Hero.”

Other leading ladies like Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, the female group Boygenius, and Brandy Clark each clinched six nods. 

Only two gentlemen, Jon Batiste, and producer Jack Antonoff, match the ladies with six nominations. 

Several historic possibilities are up for grabs!

Since 1999, no Black woman has claimed the Album of the Year trophy, but this year, SZA or Janelle Monae could potentially change that narrative.

If Taylor Swift secures the Album of the Year, she would set a new record as the artist with the most wins ever, boasting a total of four.

Karol G, with “Mañana Será Bonito,” could make history as the first female artist to win in the Best Música Urbana Album category.

As for the show, comedian Trevor Noah is set to host for the fourth consecutive year, with the main show scheduled to be broadcast live on CBS and Paramount+ starting at 8 p.m. EST.

Get ready for a night of musical brilliance and fierce competition!
