The 2022 nominees are a pop-heavy bunch, featuring the category's defending winner Taylor Swift -- here this year with folklore's sister album, evermore -- as well as the 2020 AOTY winner, Billie Eilish. Chart-toppers like Lil Nas X, Justin Bieber and Doja Cat are also in the mix, along with this year's breakout rookie, Olivia Rodrigo, who following in Eilish's footsteps, earning a nod in each of the Big 4 categories for her debut, Sour.

Surprises this year include Jon Batiste -- who snuck up on the odds-makers with the most nominations of any artist this year -- as well as Kanye West's long-gestating Donda album and Lady Gaga's final collaboration with Tony Bennet making the cut. This year's AOTY nominees span a variety of sounds, leaving even the most well-versed music fan with something to discover.
