Olivia Rodrigo Dominates Grammy Award Nominations

Olivia Rodrigo has secured a front-row seat at the 2022 Grammy Awards, with nominations in all four major categories.

Driver’s License, Rodrigo’s debut album, has been nominated for best album, best new artist, record of the year, and song of the year.

In all categories except best new artist, she is up against Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X.

Billie Eilish, H.E.R., Eurovision winners Mneskin, and B.T.S. themselves unveiled the 2022 Grammy Award nominees on Tuesday morning at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

For the first time, the major category shortlists were expanded from eight to 10 finalists after almost 22,000 songs and albums were submitted for consideration.

“We’re living in a time of extraordinary growth in music,” explained Recording Academy C.E.O. Harvey Mason, Jr. “Over 60,000 songs a day are being released. With so much more music available. There’s a lot more excellence to recognise and celebrate.”
