And The 2018 Grammy Winners Are…

The nominations for the 60th annual Grammy Awards are here! The year of music has been a great one — from "Despacito" topping the charts to Jay-Z's controversial 4:44. Still, in an industry that grows increasingly method-diverse, it's hard to tell who is a front runner. This year, Childish Gambino, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar lead the pack. Each one earned the prestigious nomination for record of the year. Of course, "Despacito" is also among those winners — it's nominated for record of the year.
The Grammys also like to celebrate the industry newcomers. This year, Alessia Cara, Khalid, Lil Uzi, Julia Michaels and SZA garnered nominations for "Best New Artist" and — don't worry — Cardi B. did get a nomination for her performance of "Bodak Yellow." Taylor Swift's reputation didn't make the cut for submission this year, but she still has a nomination; the singer-songwriter has a nom for "Best Country Song" because she penned Little Big Town's song "Better Man.
Without further ado, the complete list of Grammy nominations. During the ceremony, we'll be updating this list with the winners. Here's to the winners.
