“Many dreams have come true for me this year but this one is probably the most meaningful. “

Olivia Rodrigo’s breakout year keeps going from strength to strength, with the 18-year-old bagging her first Grammy nomination. She was nominated for seven Grammys.
It’s hard to believe that, before 2021, the teenager had yet to burst into the mainstream, having been relatively unknown before starring in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.
Having seen so much success this year already, it was expected Olivia would score big when the Grammy nominations were announced on Tuesday — and, with seven nominations to her name, it’s fair to say she met those expectations head-on.
Olivia was nominated in all of the Big Four categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.
In an Instagram post celebrating the nominations, Olivia thanked her fans for their support and explained that the news meant even more to her as she’d dreamed of this moment as a young girl.
“Woke up this morning to 7 Grammy nominations,” she wrote in the caption. My family used to live just a few blocks away from the Staples Center where the Grammys were held every year when I was younger. “
She said: “I used to walk out of the arena looking at the plaques with the names of the winners in wide-eyed wonder. “
She added: “I went to the Grammy museum so many of my free weekends bc I was so fascinated by the history of the show and all of the incredible musicians that made it up. “
“Many dreams have come true for me this year but this one is probably the most meaningful,” she finished. Thank you to all who believed in me, and supported the songs that I wrote. Thank you @recordingacademy, for the recognition. It’s an honor beyond words. It was truly a day that I will never forget. “
Another artist scoring big was Billie Eilish, who woke up to the news that she’d received seven nominations too. This makes her a 17-time Grammy nominee in just three years.
“This is UNREALLLLLLLL!!! Literally insane,” Billie said of the news in an Instagram post. “This is amazing news. I could cry. THANK YOU @recordingacademy THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! “
Lil Nas X brought his Grammy nominations tally up to 11 after earning another five, including nods for Album of the Year and Song of the Year.
Doja Cat also saw huge success in the nominations, scooping eight of them after a successful year with the album Planet Her.
One artist who was snubbed entirely this year was Miley Cyrus, who fans hoped would be nominated for following the release of her album Plastic Hearts in 2020.
But Miley herself didn’t seem too bothered, tweeting a list of 30 artists who’d never won a Grammy alongside the caption: “In good company. “

Correction: Planet Her is Doja Cat’s third album. An earlier version of this post misrepresented the number of albums she has released.
