The 2019 Grammy Nominations are finally here! Every year, we find ourselves anxiously waiting to find out who could potentially take home a golden gramophone, but the truth is, we’re not alone. That’s right! Our favorite artists find out at the exact same time we do, which makes this moment all the more exciting.
This year, women had a huge wave of nominations. Janelle Monáe, who’s up for Album of the Year, re-posted this video featuring her finding out on live television that she was up for the award. Cue the “awww’s!”
Lady Gaga is no stranger to the Grammy’s with six wins under her belt already. Even so, Mother Monster tweeted an emotional letter after getting a whopping five nominations for “Shallow” with Bradley Cooper. Come on, are you even surprised?

One of the most exciting categories, Best Pop Vocal, features powerhouses such as P!nk and Ariana Grande. “Fall in Line” by Christina Aguilera feat. Demi Lovato got a nom for Pop Vocal Song as well. Lovato broke her Twitter silence by posting this awesome message:
I grew up in Texas, singing to @xtina everyday, DESPERATELY trying to hit her high notes.. if you would’ve told me I’d have a Grammy nod with her I would’ve laughed in your face!! This is so surreal..
