The Grammys nominations 2018 have been officially announced

And there are some big surprises…

The 60th Grammy Awards are officially in sight, taking place on January 28th 2018, with James Corden chosen to host the Grammys. The Grammys nominations 2018 were announced yesterday and there were a lot of surprises with some new additions (call out to Kesha) and many-a high profile name absent from the list.

It looks like Despacito and Jay-Z are having a good year but Taylor Swift’s comeback didn’t seem to put her in good steed for Grammy nominations and it’s bad news for Ed Sheeran too who only features slightly on the list.
