List Of 2016 Grammy Awards Nominations, And No Adele’s Name Is Not On The List!


Can you believe it’s already that time of the year again? Award season is coming up fast. The Grammys will take place at the Staples Center Feb. 15, 2016, and this morning on CBS This Morning, Alicia Keys helped reveal the first round of nominations.

There are some familiar names in the list of nominations below. You have Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, and even country music superstar Chris Stapleton who became a household name after his amazing performance with Justin Timberlake during the CMA Awards.

But there is one huge name missing: Adele. The 27-year-old singer has smashed just about every record you can smash with her latest album 25. The first single from the album, Hello, just might be the most popular song of 2015, which is incredible considering it wasn’t even released until late October.

Speaking of the release date, this is why you won’t find her name in the categories below. She simply wasn’t eligible for the upcoming Grammy Awards.

For the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards, albums must be released between Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015.

Adele’s third studio album, which was released Nov. 20, missed the deadline by almost two months, so please don’t send them any nasty letters. We are sure she will be all over the 2017 Grammys.
