Once again, the Recording Academy was full of surprises when it announced the nominees of the Grammy Awards Live . This year welcomed accolades for some growing popstars, including Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato, as well as recognition of streaming-only albums. Kudos to Chance the Rapper for standing his ground.) And then there are the headscratchers: Where’s the love for Sia or Taylor Swift? (Yes, Taylor Swift.

Here’s a look at a few of the most shocking snubs and surprises:There’s no doubt that Justin Bieber is a formidable artist, producing hit after hit and earning three Grammy nominations. But up until now, the singer had yet to reach such critical acclaim as he did for Purpose, which was nominated for Album of the Year. In total he earned four nominations (putting him at seven overall), largely thanks to his match made in musical heaven with Diplo and Skrillex. Last year, the three won Best Dance Recording for “Where R U Now,” marking Bieber’s first Grammy win. But he wasn’t the only popstar to finally get his due. Demi Lovato earned her first nomination ever: Best Pop Vocal Album for Confident.
No one ran away with the summer quite like Sia, who not only earned her first No. 1 single (“Cheap Thrills”) but also released the power pop ballad, “The Greatest,” to rave reviews. Neither song appeared in the Record of the Year or Song of the Year categories, in which she appeared for “Chandelier.” Instead, Sia walked away with a respectable (yet disappointingly slight) three nominations, including Best Pop Vocal Album for This Is Acting and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Cheap Thrills.”More than just Beyonce’s little sister, Solange released one of the best R&B albums of the year and the standout track, “Cranes in the Sky,” earned the singer her first-ever nomination for Best R&B Performance. Though, the fact that she only walked away with one, especially with Frank Ocean not in contention, is a major disappointment. Where’s the love in the rest of the R&B categories?
Rihanna could prove to be this year’s darkhorse, earning eight nominations, including two of the top awards (Record of the Year for “Work” and Album of the Year for Drake’s Views). If she does walk away with any wins, it could only stop Beyonce from inching her way toward Grammy history. While Rihanna earned eight nominations, none of them were for “This Is What You Came For” — you know, that EDM chart-topper written by Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift. If the Recording Academy had any sense of humor — or a taste for drama — it would have nominated the two exes in the Song of the Year category and let them awkwardly figure out that acceptance speech. Just by getting nominated, Chance the Rapper is making 59th Grammy Awards history. This year, the Recording Academy amended its rules, allowing for streaming-only albums to compete. With the rapper’s mixtape, The Coloring Book(released exclusively on Apple Music), eligible, Chance the Rapper earned seven nominations, including Best New Artist.
The Recording Academy welcomes the class of nominees for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards®. Top nominees are Beyoncé (9), Drake (8), Rihanna (8), Kanye West (8), and Chance The Rapper (7). Selected from nearly 22,000 submissions across 84 categories, the nominations reflect the range of artistic innovation that defined the year in music. As the only peer-selected music award, the Grammy® is voted on by The Recording Academy’s membership body of music makers, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers, and engineers.“Just as we see emerging musicians experimenting, we’re also seeing established artists resisting what’s expected of them and, instead, embracing the creative freedom they’ve been afforded through their success, blurring the lines between music’s mainstream and artistic edge,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy.

The dynamic range of this year’s nominees is exhibited across several awards fields, including American Roots Music, R&B, Dance/Electronic Music, and Rock, but it’s perhaps best showcased in the Album Of The Year category, which represents a mix of genres—pop, R&B, rap, and country.Looking at the recordings nominated for Album Of The Year, an even greater degree of musical advancement and sonic experimentation is revealed: the emotion-stirring vocals of Adele, who brings a soulful depth to a collection of classically fine-tuned pop ballads; Beyoncé’s ability to paint a picture, layering poignant R&B vocals over a tapestry of sounds that range from blues-rock to hip-hop; Justin Bieber’s growth as a songwriter and evolution as a pop powerhouse; Drake’s continued genre-bending, which now invites island influences to his signature sound; and the definition-defying Sturgill Simpson who made many of us re-explore the vast territories that country abides.
“Every submission we receive for 59th Grammy Awards 2017 Live Stream consideration represents intensely soul-baring, technically exacting creative work—no group understands what each recording embodies better than Recording Academy voters, who are professional music makers themselves,” said Bill Freimuth, Recording Academy Senior Vice President of Awards.Final-round Grammy ballots will be mailed Dec. 14 and are due Jan. 13, 2017.
