Nominations for music’s biggest night are here! That's right — nominations for the 64th Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday.

Jon Batiste, known to millions of fans for his work on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," leads the pack with 11 nominations, thanks to his "We Are" album and his work scoring the movie "Soul," which already won the Academy Award for best score.

Justin Bieber, Doja Car and H.ER. were next with eight nods apiece, while Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo checked in next with seven. Rodrigo is especially noteworthy since she is nominated for record of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best new artist, capping off a year in which she became a pop sensation, thanks to hits like "Drivers license," "Traitor," "Good 4 U" and "Deja Vu."

When are the Grammy Awards?

The 64th Grammy Awards will be held Jan. 31, 2022. The live ceremony will be broadcast on CBS and on Paramount+ at 8 p.m. ET from Arena (currently known as the Staples Center before changing names on Christmas Day) in Los Angeles.

Who is hosting the Grammy Awards?
