Grammy nominations 2020 – what time are the nominees announced and how can I watch?

THE Grammy Awards is one of the biggest events in the music calendar and returns in 2020 with Alicia Keys as the host.

Nominations for the annual ceremony will be revealed TODAY (November 20) – here is how you can watch the announcement.

When are the Grammy Awards 2020 nominations?

The nominees for the 62 Grammy Awards will be announced by 2019 host Alicia Keys, Recording Academy president Deborah Dugan, and Chair of the Board of Trustees Harvey Mason Jr TODAY (November 20).

Alicia, who has won 15 Grammy awards, will return to host the ceremony in 2020.

In 2019, she famously sang a medley of songs by Drake, Lauryn Hill, Kings of Leon, Ella Mai, Sting, The Fugees and Nat King Cole.

She ended the impressive set by belting out her own track, Empire State of Mind, which she featured on with Jay-Z.

The 2020 Grammy Awards will take place on January 26, 2020 and as always it will celebrate all things music.

In recent years the ceremony has been held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA and it is thought it will take place there again.

Who will be nominated for a Grammy Award 2020?

There has been a lot of speculation about who will take home some of the more prestigious awards, such as Album of Year and Song of the Year.

Breakthrough artist Billie Eilish and Lizzo could battle it out for Record of the Year and Song of Year.

They may also go head-to-head with Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande for the Album of Year gong, as both women have had great success with their respective EPs, Lovers and Thank U, Next.

Other names floating around for various awards include Lil Nas X, whose track Old Town Road was an instant hit, Tyler, the Creator, Lana Del Rey, Summer Walker, Lewis Capaldi and Rosalia.

But viewers will have to wait until the nomination announcement is made to see which stars made it on the awards category.
