On Tuesday (Nov. 23), nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards were announced. In addition to the typical debate about snubs and surprises, the biggest headline has to be this year’s expansion to 10 nominees from eight in the Big Four categories.
On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith offer up their first impressions of the supersize marquee nominations, discussing top nominee Jon Batiste (11 nods), Grammy favorite FINNEAS scoring a best new artist nom, and Olivia Rodrigo looking like a front-runner in multiple categories. Who will win come Jan. 31? We’ll have to wait to find out.
