A total 84 categories will honor music's best recordings released between October 1, 2018, and August 31, 2019.

Although Swift has three more nominations than a whole lot of other artists do, the 2020 Grammys will pale in comparison to recent years where the singer has received nods in several major categories.

It's that time of the year when the much waited GRAMMY nominations are announced and social media erupts due to the choices - some deserving ones get nominated while some are shockingly left out.

In 2019, Grande was once again nominated in those same two categories: Best Pop Solo Performance for "God Is a Woman" and Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.

The category has seen a number of Democratic politicians take home awards. Both Swift and Beyonce scored four nominations, and Grande garnered five nods, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year.

Michelle Obama made an unexpected appearance at this year's Grammy ceremony, opening the telecast alongside singers Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

Michelle Obama earned a Grammy nomination on Wednesday morning.

Obama narrated the audiobook version of the memoir, which follows the journey from her childhood in the South Side of Chicago to life after her eight years in the White House at her husband's side. I don't think I will be on stage, you know? I've noticed that so many of us face a common challenge: that too often we think our stories don't matter'. Capaldi's hit, "Someone You Loved", is up for song of the year, though. That's how we can keep becoming'.

The 62nd annual Grammy Awards show is Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020.
