After a somewhat anxiety-inducing live broadcast, the 2024 Grammy Awards nomination list is out. Singers like Taylor Swift, SZA, and rapper Drake were sure to make the cut, given their recording-breaking run on the music charts this year. Not everyone was as clear-cut shut-ins. Just as each year brings about notable snubs (hi, PinkPantheress), it is important to acknowledge those artists who bet out the right for their respective spots, especially first-time nominees.

Who are the first-time nominees for the 2024 Grammys?

Victoria Monét and her adorable daughter Hazel earned their first nominations today as performers (November 10). Victoria previously received three nominations in her supporting role on thank u, next by Ariana Grande and “Do It” by Chloe x Halle.
