The 2018 Grammy Award nominations have been announced! Andra Day revealed a few of the nominees for the 60th Grammy Awards on “CBS This Morning” and shortly thereafter, the Recording Academy announced the nominees in all 84 categories.

Jay-Z leads the pack with eight nominations this year, including nods for album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best rap album.

Kendrick Lamar follows with seven nods, while Bruno Mars is the third most-nominated artist with six. SZA is 2018’s most Grammy-nominated woman with five nods; Khalid, Childish Gambino and producer No I.D. also scored five noms.

The Grammys will air live on CBS from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday, Jan. 28. The final round of Grammy voting runs from Dec. 7-21.

Some fans of Taylor Swift may be surprised not to see reputation nominated but I️t is all due to the timing. The timeframe of eligibility spans Oct. 1 of the year two years before the year of a given Grammys to Sept. 30 of the year preceding a given Grammys. For example: The 2018 Grammys occur Jan. 28, 2018, and eligibility for the awards show goes from Oct. 1, 2016 to Sept. 30, 2017. This means that he album, which dropped Nov. 10 is illegible for 2018 but we’re very likely to see I️t nominated for 2019.

A full list of 2018 Grammy nominees follows. Any category with more than five nominees means there was a tie; the eligibility period for the 2018 Grammys extended from Oct. 1, 2016 to Sept. 30, 2017.
