Dominate da Jay-Z, nominato in otto categorie fra cui miglior disco e miglior canzone, sono state annunciate le candidature alla sessantesima edizione dei Grammy Awards, che verranno consegnati il 28 gennaio al Madison Square Garden di New York, con la cerimonia condotta per il secondo anno di seguito da James Corden. Candidati in più categorie anche Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars e SZA. Nella categoria Rock c’è il rischio che il premio venga assegnato postumo, visto che fra le nomination si trovano Leonard Cohen e Chris Cornell – le altre sono Foo Fighters, Kaleo e Nothing More -, mentre fra gli album “alternative” le nomination sono Everything Now degli Arcade Fire, Humanz dei Gorillaz, American Dream degli LCD Soundsystem, Pure Comedy di Father John Misty e Sleep Well Beast dei National.
