The 64th Annual Grammy Awards are scheduled to air this Sunday and we’re looking at the stars, wondering who’s likely to make history.
This year, the nominations are led by Billie Eilish, Finneas O'Connell, H.E.R. and many others also competing for awards.
As we eagerly await one of "music’s biggest nights", here's a closer look at this year's potential record breakers.
After having performed at the 2020 and 2021 Grammy Awards, American electropop star Billie Eilish will return for this year’s ceremony, just one week after her performance at the 2022 Oscars.
Recently having become the youngest person to win the film music awards "triple crown" at just 20 years and 99 days old, Eilish is also one of three music artists to be recognized for the most consecutive Grammy nominations for Song of the Year.
The soulful sensation has also received the most consecutive Grammy nominations for Record of the Year (female).
Eilish already has seven Grammy wins under her belt and is in the running to take home a few more after her album Happier Than Ever and single by the same name were nominated for record of the year, song of the year, album of the year, best solo performance, best pop vocal album, best music video and best music film.
This year, Eilish may also earn the record title for the most Grammys won in a single night (female).
Last year, Eilish’s hit "Everything I wanted" triumphed over competition from Beyonce, Doja Cat, DaBaby, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, and more to claim the final trophy of the 2021 Grammy night.
In 2020, the "Bad Guy" songstress swept the ceremony with wins in the Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year categories.
For the third year in a row, American singer and songwriter FINNEAS will once again be penciled into the record books.
The 25-year-old alternative pop artist is joining his sister, Billie Eilish, for the most consecutive Grammy nominations for Song of the Year for his work on "Happier Than Ever".
Although the "Naked" singer has released several singles as a solo artist, he often writes and produces songs for his older sister.
The Billboard Hot 100 topping artist is no stranger to record-breaking Grammy nominations.
Sharing the spotlight with Eilish, the rising star picked up nods for the song of the year category during the 2021 Grammy nominations for the hit single "Happier Than Ever" and in 2020 for "Bad Guy".
The award-winning siblings will join some of the most prominent existing Song of the Year record holders including Dianne Warren, Lionel Richie, and Lennon and McCartney.
After winning the Song of the Year Grammy Award last year, H.E.R. is at it once again.
Winning her first Grammy Award at just 21-years-old, the R&B vocalist is one of the most nominated artists at the 64th annual Grammy Awards.
This year marks H.E.R.’s third time getting nominated for the Song of the Year award category, joining Eilish and FINNEAS in achieving the record title for the most consecutive Grammy nominations for Song of the Year.
Last year’s award-winning song "I Can’t Breathe" honoured George Floyd and the BLM movement. This year, H.E.R.’s "Fight For You" may be the song that earns her a second consecutive win.
H.E.R.’s eight Grammy nominations also place her in the running for three additional record titles: the most Grammys won in a single night (overall), the most Grammys won in a single night (female), or alternatively the most Grammy nominations without a win in a single night.
We’ll see which direction the Grammys take for H.E.R.
Iconic artists Michael Jackson and Santana are currently tied for the most Grammys won in a single night (male) and the most Grammys won in a single night (overall) at eight. However, Jon Batiste may have the opportunity to take the lead this year.
With 11 nominations to his name, Batiste still faces strong competition from the likes of Doja Cat, H.E.R., and Justin Bieber.
The singer can still come out with a whopping nine wins, even if he loses his general field categories (Album of the Year for “We Are” and Record of the Year for “Freedom”).
If Batiste doesn’t take home any Grammy awards, which looks to be very unlikely, he would still be in the running for the most Grammy nominations without a win in a single night.
You better “belieb” that Just Bieber is also a top contender for the most Grammys won in a single night (male) and the most Grammys won in a single night (overall).
One of the most-nominated musicians going into the 2022 Grammy Awards, Bieber is up for an incredible eight trophies.
His nominations tie him with Doja Cat and H.E.R., who all come in behind Jon Batiste and his historic 11 nods.
The Canadian pop star is currently nominated for Album of the Year for his latest record Justice, and both Record and Song of the Year for his number one hit “Peaches”.
The highly buzzed music sensation has been nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance for the infectious “Need to Know” and Best Rap Song for “Best Friend” alongside Saweetie.
Doja’s huge hit album “Planet Her” is also a contender for a Pop Vocal Album win, while she’s head-to-head against Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance where she’s nominated for “Kiss Me More” with SZA.
Depending on which turn the 2022 Grammys take on Sunday night, Doja may be take home the title for the most Grammys won in a single night (overall) or the most Grammy nominations without a win in a single night.
Other notable nominations this year include O-Rod’s stunning seven nominations.
At just 19-years-old, she's the second-youngest artist ever to be nominated in all “Big Four” categories (album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist) for her debut album Sour and breakthrough smash hit “Drivers License”.
The pop princess, who is scheduled to perform in what will be her first appearance on the Grammys stage, may be the artist to nab record titles for the most Grammys won in a single night (female) and the most “General Field” Grammys won.
The 64th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Las Vegas on Sunday, 3 April 2022, featuring performances from BTS, John Legend and more.
We’re excited to see some of our favourite artists recognized for their musical achievements and can’t wait to see who will triumph this year!
