Grammys 2019: Here Are All The Nominees

The 2019 Grammy noms are here and there are a few noticeable snubs -- and surprise entries -- in the US music industry's biggest night of the year.

Childish Gambino, Cardi B, Drake, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have made it into the more prestigious categories including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.

While top artists like Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and Ariana Grande have been relegated to the more genre-specific categories. Performers including Nicki Minaj, Carrie Underwood and Lil Wayne have been snubbed altogether.

And everyone is pleasantly surprised that The Backstreet Boys are back (alright) with their first nomination in 17 years.
