While young up-and-comers like Shawn Mendes, Bebe Rexha and Camila Cabello snagged Grammy nominations on Friday, a number of veteran artists got some Grammy love as well.
Both Seal and Barbra Streisand are nominated in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Seal’s up for his 2017 album, Standards, which featured him crooning the Great American Songbook, while Barbra’s nominated for THE MUSIC…The MEM’RIES…THE MAGIC!, a live album that came out a year ago.
Sting, meanwhile, got a nomination for Best Reggae Album for 44/876, the collaborative album he made with pop/reggae star Shaggy.
Two relatively veteran pop groups, Maroon 5 and Backstreet Boys, are both nominated for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance. Maroon 5 scored a nod for their #1 hit “Girls Like You,” while Backstreet is up for their single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”
Two additional artists who got their start in ’90s teen pop, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, were also nominated in that same category: Christina for “Fall In Line,” her duet with Demi Lovato, and Justin for “Say Something,” his duet with country superstar Chris Stapleton.
Other top pop acts of note to score Grammy nods this year: Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson and Pink. They’re all up for Best Pop Vocal Album for their respective releases Reputation, Meaning of Life and Beautiful Trauma.
Lady Gaga has five nominations in all, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop/Duo Group Performance for “Shallow,” her A Star Is Born duet with co-star Bradley Cooper from the movie’s soundtrack.
The Grammys will be handed out February 10 live from Los Angeles, and air on CBS.
