Recording Academy announces R&B Grammy Awards nominees

(November 20, 2019) Okay, it's that time of year again. the Recording Academy has announced the nominees for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, the leading awards celebrating the musical recording industry.

The awards will be presented on January 26, 2020 in a show broadcast on CBS. Want to see the full list of nominees? Just CLICK HERE.

As for us, we're particularly focused on the nominees in the R&B categories, and they actually did okay in their choices. We're not quite sure that Lizzo fits in the "Traditional R&B Performance," but it is good to see up and coming artists like Lucky Daye, H.E.R., Daniel Caesar and BJ the Chicago Kid get some shine, alongside longtime faves like Brandy, India Arie and PJ Morton.

Check out the nominees below and tell us what you think!
