Grammy Awards 2019: The complete list of nominees

Music's biggest night will be here before we know it, and 2018 was certainly a year worth dancing to! Music fans are gearing up to see who takes home golden statues at the GRAMMY Awards on Feb. 10, and there are more than a few incredible contenders.

Canada's very own Drake and Shawn Mendes, and pop goddesses Camila Cabello and Ariana Grande (and her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller) are in the running for major prizes, as well as up-and-coming country queen Kacey Musgraves, and Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato's sexy collaboration "Fall In Line." Epic movie soundtrack hits like Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "Shallow" and "All the Stars" from Marvel's Black Panther are well on their way to formal recognition, too. Who are you rooting for?
