From Lady Gaga to Marshmello, Vegas acts take over the Grammy nominees
Las Vegas is used to hosting musical awards shows of all types. Be it the Latin Grammys or the Country Music Awards, there is no shortage of chart toppers in the city. That includes the very nominees themselves. This year’s list of Grammy nominations are chock full of Vegas headliners and we are happy with a capital “H” about it.
And The Nominees Are…
Bruno Mars should leave space on the mantle open for at least one Grammy. Silk Sonic got a total of three nominations. Silk Sonic is up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best R&B Song.
Soon to be Vegas headliner Carrie Underwood got two nods with her two noms from the Recording Academy. Underwood was recognized for her duet with Jason Aldean. Their song “If I Didn’t Love You” is nominated in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance. She also got a second nomination this year in the Best Roots Gospel Album category with her “My Savior.”
EDM headliners Tiesto and Marshmello scored one nomination each. Tiesto’s “The Business” received a nomination in the Best Dance/Electronic Recording category. And Marshmello was acknowledged for “Shockwave” in the Best Dance/Electronic Music Album.
Grammy’s Go GAGA
Barely out the door on her Las Vegas residency, Lady Gaga scored six Grammy nominations. Clearly the Recording Academy loves a girl who can jazz it up with the best of them. And she did just that. Her collaboration with the legendary Tony Bennett was a favorite nominee this time around with their “Love for Sale” album.
The album itself received nominations in the Album of the Year, Best Engineered Album: Non-Classical and in a non-traditional nomination it also got a Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album nom.
