2024 Grammy Nominees: Complete List Released by The Recording Academy

The 2024 Grammy Award nominations have been made available, and SZA has the most nods with nine. Victoria Monét and producer Serban Ghenea are next, followed closely by Phoebe Bridgers, whose seven nods including a clutch for Boygenius.

The event will take place at Los Angeles’ Arena on Sunday, February 4, 2024, and will be televised on CBS and Paramount+. On November 10, a livestream event was held to reveal the 2024 Grammy nominations. Performers including Jon Bon Jovi, Muni Long, St. Vincent, and Kim Petras presented the nominees.

The 2024 Grammy Awards will introduce three new categories: Best Pop Dance Recording, Best Alternative Jazz Album, and the much-awaited Best African Music Performance. New categories were added last year, including the eagerly anticipated Songwriter of the Year, Non-Classical, and Best Song for Social Change categories.

The Big Four winners from the previous year were Harry Styles (Album of the Year), Samara Joy (Best New Artist), Lizzo (Record of the Year), and Bonnie Raitt (Song of the Year). Despite not winning in the main categories, Beyoncé broke an epic record by becoming the person with the most Grammy awards in history.
