The Nominations for 2023 Grammys are Finally Announced

The nominations for the 2023 Grammy Awards are finally here, and we could not be more excited about the event. See which of your favorite stars and artists take the award for this year.

The most anticipated list of nominations is finally here, and we are thrilled to break it to you.

Nov 15, 2022, marks the announcement of the 2023 Grammy award nominations, and the star-studded list is to be one for the books airing on Feb 5, 2023.

Ahead of the announcements featuring the nominees for the next year, those artists who have released new tracks and music during last year’s eligible period, prominently Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Adele, and Harry styles were some of the few musicians’ fans have predicted to take the gold.

And though Silk Sonic fans have also predicted that the duo is likely to be the winner again, the group has announced earlier that they have chosen to “gracefully, humbly and most importantly, sexually” withdraw their album from the 2023 award considerations.
