Olivia Rodrigo has been nominated in all four of the top Grammy Awards being held on 31st January 2022.

The 18-year-old, is nominated for seven awards in total including best album, best new artist, record of the year and song of the year, for Drivers License.

However, she will face big competition from the likes of Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X, who are both nominated in some of those categories.

New Zealander Simon O’Neill has been nominated for two Grammy nominations for Best Choral Performance and Best Engineered Album in Classical.

The most nominations, a whooping 11, went to composer Jon Baptiste who won an Oscar earlier this year for his work on the Pixar film, Soul.

The Grammys will be decided by the 12,000 voting members of the Recording Academy.

For decades these were overseen by “secret committees”, who narrowed down the top 20 finalists in each category to the final shortlist of between five and eight nominees.
