Rapper-singer Lizzo earned eight GRAMMY nominations this year, the most for any artist, including Record and Song Of The Year. Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, is one of the biggest stars in music with such hits as "Juice," "Truth Hurts," and "Good as Hell." She is also Time Magazine's Entertainer of the Year.

Singer-songwriter Eilish, at 18, is the youngest performer ever to earn GRAMMY nominations in all top four categories, including Best New Artist, and Song, Record, and Album Of The Year. Her song "Bad Guy" hit the # 1 spot on the Billboard chart.

The Jonas Brothers—Kevin, Joe, and Nick—were once among the hottest pop groups in America. But in 2013, faced with stagnating record and ticket sales and a growing rift between the brothers, they split up. The brothers regrouped this year and for the first time grabbed the #1 spot on the Billboard 100 chart with their hit "Sucker." They are now nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.

Lil Nas X, who was born Montero Lamar Hill, turned the country music world upside down with his country rap single "Old Town Road," which went viral on the app TikTok, and then hit #1 on the Billboard chart. He's earned six nominations, the most for any male artist in 2019, including Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, and Best New Artist.
