Harry Styles, Beyoncé, Adele & More Land 2023 Grammy Nominations in Big Four Categories

The Recording Academy is revealing the nominations for the 65th annual Grammy Awards on Tuesday (Nov. 15) via a livestream on live.Grammy.com and on the Academy’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok channels.

They will announce all 91 categories on the livestream, including the Big Four categories – song of the year, record of the year, best new artist and album of the year.

We’ll have full reporting and analysis of the nominations at the conclusion of the livestream, but before that, we’ll let you know the nominees in each of the Big Four categories as soon as they’re announced – together with our instant analysis.

Swift ties the all-time record for most song of the year nods (six) with the nomination of the expanded version of “All Too Well.” Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie had long been the songwriters with the most song of the year nods. They now have company.

Raitt lands her first song of the year nomination for “Just Like That,” which she wrote by herself. It’s the first song written by a solitary songwriter to be nominated in this category since Swift’s “Lover” two years ago.

At the other extreme, nine songwriters are credited as co-writers of DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID.” That’s not quite a record. Eleven songwriters joined forces to create Justin Bieber’s jam “Peaches,” a nominee last year. “GOD DID” is in a tie with Beyoncé’s “Black Parade” as the song of the year nominee with the second-most credited songwriters.

“GOD DID” and “The Heart Part 5” are both also nominated for best rap song.

We’ll be back soon with record of the year.
