The holidays came early for a select number of artists, musicians and bands today when The Recording Academy revealed the list of nominees for the 2017 GRAMMY Awards.
Beyoncé, Drake, Rihanna, Chance the Rapper and Adele all scored big with multiple nominations, but they’re just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the number of people being recognized for their musical accomplishments.
Artists from pop, country, rock, hip-hop and more took to Twitter to give thanks for the recognition. Chance counted his blessings, Keith Urban admitted he “was totally blown away” by the three nominations he received, and Demi Lovato shared that was thrilled to be in the same category as Adele, Justin Bieber, Sia and Ariana Grande.
Here’s a round-up of the best tweets.
Glory be to God. I'm nominated for 7 #grammys. Thank you to everyone who worked on Coloring Book, I love you.—
