When Are The 66th Annual Grammy Awards?

The 66th annual Grammy Awards took place on February 4 2024. You could watch the ceremony on Channel Seven or 7Plus.

You can also re-watch the shabang on 7Plus if you missed out on the OG broadcast time.

Who are the big hitters in the Grammy nominations list?

The big news from these nominations is that everyone’s fav self-proclaimed anti-hero T Swizzle has broken a MASSIVE Grammy record.

Due to the shortlisting of “Anti-Hero” for Grammys Song of the Year (SOTY), Queen Taylor now holds the record for being the songwriter with the most songs nominated for that category with seven nominations. Previously the record was tied between Sir Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie who both had six SOTY Grammy nominations to their name.

Taylor’s previous songs to be up for the esteemed award were “You Belong With Me” (2010), “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” (2015), “Lover” (2020), “Cardigan” (2021), and the iconic “All Too Well – 10 Minute Version” (2023).

Despite the record number of short-listings, Swift has yet to snag the award — so maybe this will be her year!

Taylor Swift received SIX Grammy nominations:

• Album Of The Year: Midnights
• Song Of The Year: Anti-Hero
• Record Of The Year: Anti-Hero
• Pop Solo Performance: Anti-Hero
• Pop Duo/Group Performance: Karma (Remix)
• Pop Vocal Album: Midnights— best of taylor swift (@archivetaylors) November 10, 2023

Other artists nominated for the Grammys 2024 SOTY were Billie Eilish with her heartbreaking Barbie banger “What Was I Made For?” Keeping her company was fellow Barbie soundtrack artist Dua Lipa with the 2023 film’s other big hit “Dance the Night”. Truly cementing the fact that this year is the year of Barbie, and the whole Oppenheimer thing was just a phase.

Both the Grammys Song of the Year and Record of the Year shortlists are made up of almost solely female artists, with Jon Batiste as the token male in each.

Eilish managed to score herself an impressive three nominations — Grammys Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Solo Pop Performance. Meanwhile, the most nominated artist was singer and songwriter SZA, who cleaned up with a whopping NINE nominations with her album SOS and its songs.

Indie supergroup boygenius which consists of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus, was also nominated for three awards — Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best Rock Performance. American rapper Ice Spice scored her first Grammy nomination as one of the seven contenders for best new artist.

Who’s Performing At The 2024 Grammy Awards?

Those gracing the stage throughout the night will include country star Luke Combs, iconic singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, rapper Travis Scott, timeless legends Billy Joel and U2, as well as fresher faces like Burna Boy, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo.
