Beyoncé leads 65th Annual Grammy Awards nominations

Show will be held in Feb 2023

Nominees for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards have been announced. Topping this year’s list are Beyoncé with nine, Kendrick Lamar with eight, Adele and Brandi Carlile with seven each, and Mary J. Blige, DJ Khaled, Future, Terius “The-Dream” Gesteelde-Diamant, Randy Merrill, and Harry Styles all with six apiece.

With this year’s nominations, Beyoncé and Jay-Z are now tied as the most nominated artists in Grammy history with 88. As the only peer-voted music award, the Grammys are selected by the Recording Academy’s voting membership body of music makers, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, composers, producers, mixers, and engineers.

“Celebrating the miracle of music is at the core of everything we do at the Recording Academy and today we are proud and honored to celebrate music’s power to lift people up and to bring them together,” states Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. “I’m energized by this year’s slate of nominees and how each of them uses their craft to inspire us, and to remind us that music is our universal language. Each of these deserving nominees has helped to provide the world with an incredible soundtrack and is a true testament to how vibrant our entire music community truly is.”

The final round of voting, which will determine recipients, will take place December 14, 2022–January 4, 2023. The 65th Annual Grammy Awards will return to Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena on Sun, February 5, 2023, and will broadcast live on the CBS Television Network and stream live and on-demand on Paramount+ at 8-11:30 pm ET/5-8:30 pm PT.

Prior to the Telecast, the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theater at 12:30 pm PT and will be streamed live on grammy.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube channel.
