2022 Grammy nominations revealed: Lorde snubbed but her producer gets nod

Despite her third album Solar Power scraping in just before the cut-off release date for this year's awards, the New Zealand artist did not make the list of nominees.

However, her main collaborator Jack Antonoff is up for the producer of the year award, and worked on several major albums to earn the honour. He worked on albums by St Vincent, Clairo, Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey - plus his own band's record.

Lorde won two Grammy awards in 2013 for song of the year and best solo pop performance for Royals. Her second album Melodrama earned an album of the year nomination in 2017, but lost out to Bruno Mars' 24K Magic.

During the nominations ceremony, an embarrassing blunder forced the Grammys bosses to backtrack after skipping out on one of the biggest breakout stars.

Olivia Rodrigo is just 18, and earned seven Grammy nominations off the back of her hit song Driver's License and debut album Sour.

But the moment her first-ever Grammy nomination was read was overshadowed when the announcer missed her name entirely.

The presenter read the nominees for best music video - AC/DC, Jon Batiste, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X. But she missed Rodrigo's nomination for Good 4 U, despite her name flashing up on the screen, Metro UK reports.

And her fans were quick to point out the blunder online:

Harvey Mason Jr, the CEO of the Recording Academy soon apologised for the error.

"First, I'd like to mention, there was one nominee we didn't announce in the best music video category, and that's Good 4 U by Olivia Rodrigo," he said, and congratulated her on the nomination.

Rodrigo is poised for Grammys greatness after earning a total of seven nominations, including nods in the album of the year, best solo performance, and best new artist categories.

Multi-genre performer Jon Batiste leads the nominations with 11. Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, and H.E.R. are all tied for the second-most nominations, each earning eight.

Billie Eilish is also up for seven awards.

The awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on January 31, 2022 (February 1 NZT).
