Grammy Awards 2015 is approaching near. While the countdown begins, we have the list of nominees for 2015 who are all set to grace the biggest music awards in the industry on Feb 8th.
Winning a Grammy nomination is a big deal and a dream come true for every artist in the music industry. Although we have seen Grammy record makers and highest winners, we would never forget to cherish the days when we first saw the star gracing Grammys red carpet.
Every year, we get to see new artists and many old ones who are still ruling the industry with their voice and talent. Newer artists like Iggy Azalea, Sia, Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor have got nominations this year. Sam Smith has got majority with 6 nods. Although Sia for example got her first Grammy nod in 2013, this might be the first time she would grace the red carpet.
Coming to old Grammy winners, we have some A-listers who have been a Grammy favourite for years. From Beyonce to Eminem, we have some of the every year nominees and winners who make records and add more trophies into their homes.
