For the first time in 19 years, the entire Record Of The Year category features nominees who are all people of colour.

This. Is. Massive.

The nominees featured in this prestigious category for 2018 are Childish Gambino for his song 'Redbone'Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee for 'Despacito'JAY-Z for his track 'The Story Of O.J', Kendrick Lamar for his ICONIC hit 'HUMBLE' and finally, Bruno Mars for '24K Magic', because no awards show is complete without Bruno.


Lorde, the wonderful singer from our sister country of New Zealand is nominated for Album Of The Year because Melodrama is just too perfect for words, but guys, we're sorry to say that although there are some absolutely beautiful artists nominated for Grammys this year, not many of them are Aussies.
