Alicia Keys announced the 2016 Grammy nominations today on CBS This Morning. No stranger to the Grammys (she’s taken home 15 in her career), Keys was on hand to announce the “Big Four,” including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist.

Leading with a whopping 11 nominations, the stage is set for Kendrick Lamar, along with other front-runners Taylor Swift and The Weeknd, who each earned 7 nominations, to have a successful night in February.

Not surprisingly, Swift’s “1989” dominates each category.  Pitted against Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly for Album of the Year, her massive “Blank Space” is also up for Record and Song of the Year.

Giving Mark Ronson’s ubiquitous “Uptown Funk” a run for its money for Song of the Year, Taylor is also in strong competition with D’Angelo’s “Really Love,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” and The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.” Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” (featuring Charlie Puth) rounded out the pack.

200x200Poised for a possible upset in the Album of the Year category are Alabama Shakes with Sound and Color and Chris Stapleton, who won  Album of the Year at the CMAs, brings his lauded  Traveller to the table.

The 58th annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be televised live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS February 15, 2016.
