Lizzo’s big year in music—and culture—just got extended into 2020 with the announcement of the 62nd annual Grammy Award nominees. The upcoming Saturday Night Live performer, former Twin Cities resident, and Minnesota Monthly‘s Best of MN cover star leads the Grammys field with eight nominations.

The singer, rapper, actress, and style icon is up for the biggest prizes of the night, including:

Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance – “Truth Hurts”

Album of the Year, Best Urban Contemporary Album – Cuz I Love You (Deluxe)

Best R&B Performance – “Exactly How I Feel,” featuring Gucci Mane

Best Traditional R&B Performance – “Jerome”

Best New Artist

Lizzo took to Twitter the morning of the nominations to thank her fans.

The Grammy Awards show is Sunday, January 26, and will air live on CBS from Los Angeles at 7 p.m. CST. Performers have not yet been announced, but it’s likely that Lizzo will be involved in at least one, if not several.
