Here Are the Groups or Duos With the Most 2023 Grammy Nominations

When the 65th annual Grammy nominations were announced last week, 12 groups or duos received two or more nods. They include some of the biggest bands in the world — but the group that received the most nods may surprise you.

The groups represented on this list hail from a wide range of genres – alternative music, dance/electronic, R&B, rock and metal, Americana, contemporary Christian and gospel and contemporary instrumental.

There are three duos on the list (Wet Leg, Nova Wav and DOMi & JD Beck). The largest ensembles on the list are the nine-member Maverick City Music and the seven-member BTS.

Two of these acts – Wet Leg and DOMi & JD Beck – are nominated for best new artist. Two more – Idles and Turnstile – vied for nominations in that category but fell short.

Some of these groups were boosted by their involvement with other artists. Lucius received all three of their nominations for work with Brandi Carlile. Nova Wav received both of theirs for work with Beyoncé.

Want to know the groups or duos that have won the most Grammys? U2 is the top group with 22 Grammys, followed by Foo Fighters (15), Alison Krauss & Union Station (14), The Chicks (12), Pat Metheny Group (10) and Emerson String Quartet (nine).

Coldplay has won seven Grammys. They are nominated for three more this year. If they win them all, they’ll tie Pat Metheny Group for fifth place on the leaderboard.

Without further ado, here are the groups or duos that received two or more Grammy nominations this year.
