Additionally, music producer/songwriter Max Martin receives six nominations, and mastering engineer Tom Coyne, rapper Drake, and engineers/mixers Serban Ghenea and John Hanes each bagged five nominations.
Channel Oâ€™s head of planning and scheduling, Tracy-Ann van Rooyen commented on the showâ€™s continued appeal, â€œThe Grammys are without a doubt musicâ€™s biggest night of the year, and Channel O is known for consistently being at the forefront of music entertainment, so itâ€™s a perfect match â€“ one which our viewers will relish and certainly stay up late to tune in for.â€
Last year, BeyoncÃ©, Sam Smith and Pharrell Williams made headlines by bagging the majority of the prizes. Who will walk away with the most golden gramophones this time round?
