No sooner did the Golden Globe nominations arrive, heralding the beginning of 2019 awards season before the year was even out, the contenders for the upcoming Grammys have now been announced.

We were pleased to see that a number of HuffPost faves, including Janelle Monáe, Cardi B, Lady Gaga and Childish Gambino, are up for some of the top honours of the night, ahead of the ceremony in February of next year.

Meanwhile, there’s not a huge number of British nominees this time around, though Dua Lipa and former Brit Awards Critics’ Choice winner Jorja Smith are both up for Best New Artist.

Because the Grammys have roughly 7000 categories, we’ll spare you the extensive list of nominees (you can check the recording academy’s website should you wish to peruse that), but here’s the list of artists and songs nominated for the top prizes at next year’s Grammys, based on which awards were presented live during this year’s ceremony
