While Lil Nas X pulled in an impressive haul, Lizzo, another first-time Grammy contender, was this year’s most-nominated artist. She landed eight nods for her album “Truth Hurts.”

“This has been an incredible year for music and I’m just so thankful to even be part of it,” she tweeted, adding, “We are all winners.”

Ariana Grande summed up excitement for her five nominations, including album and record of the year, saying “oh wow oh wow.” She later tweeted, “crying. moved and honored.”

The Jonas Brothers landed their first nod in a decade for their song “Sucker.” Joe Jonas shared a video of the boy band cheering for their best pop duo/ group performance nomination, while Nick Jonas tweeted “We’re Grammy nominated!!!!!”

Kevin Jonas also chimed in, writing, “Thank you everyone for making this year possible!! From no music a year ago to #grammy nomination today! Incredible!!!!”

Meanwhile, Lewis Capaldi shared a video fist-pumping in celebration. He was recognized for song of the year for “Someone You Loved.”
