The world is getting ready for ‘Music’s Biggest Night’ as creatives are honored for their hard work at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards! The ceremony will be live February 5, 2023 at 6:00 PM CST on CBS and Paramount+. Trevor Noah is set to host the evening for his third consecutive year.

It’s no surprise to see musicians like Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar make the nomination list, but with the Best Audio Book, Narration, and Storytelling Recording category, fans are able to celebrate their favorite Hollywood superstars like Viola Davis who is nominated for her book ‘Finding Me’.

In 2022, Congressman John Lewis and Kabir Sehgal won for their book Carry On: Reflections For a New Generation. Other nominees for the 2023 category include All About Me!: My Remarkable Life In Show Business By Mel Brooks, Aristotle And Dante Dive Into The Waters Of The World by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Music Is History by Questlove, and Act Like You Got Some Sense by Jamie Foxx.

Breakout star and CMG’s GloRilla has also got her eyes on her very first Grammy Award! When she received the news back in November she told Billboard, “I’m in disbelief. I don’t think this is happening for real. My team let me know; I had to go look it up for myself because I had thought maybe they was playing.” Curious to see who else who made the list from the Culture? Read below to explore nominations for the R&B, Rap, Gospel, Reggae, Global Music, and Music Video categories at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards!
