Jazz polymath Jon Batiste is the only man up for Record and Album of the Year, two years after he beat out pop royalty to dominate the 2022 ceremony.

She earned six nominations this time, as did Miley Cyrus and country singer-songwriter Brandy Clark. Celebrated engineer Serban Ghenea – who mixed Swift’s ‘Midnights’ – meanwhile earned seven awards.

Rising R&B star Victoria Monét also finished with seven nominations, including the coveted Record of the Year and Best New Artist awards.

Industry watchers predict Ice Spice will win in the latter category, after a banner year in which the bubbly Bronx rapper went viral on loops and collaborated with Swift.

And pop futurist Janelle Monáe earned her second Album of the Year nomination for ‘The Age of Pleasure’.

Rihanna scored a nomination for the song she worked on for the ‘Black Panther’ sequel, but the Best Visual Media category will likely go to one of four songs from the ‘Barbie’ movie.

The award is for songwriters, and includes tracks sung by Eilish, Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice, Dua Lipa and Ryan Gosling, who played Kane in the film.

Bernie Sanders — yes, that Bernie Sanders — has a second chance to win a Grammy in the Audiobook and Narration category.
