Lizzo has just become the most nominated artist for the 2020 Grammy awards.

There is no getting around it. This has been the Year of Lizzo. The rapper has taken the world by storm with her voice, her passion, and her unabashed sensuality.

But a year ago it would all have seemed like an impossible dream to Lizzo, who recorded her hit  "Truth Hurts" in 2017 - and no-one listened.

In April, Lizzo made her debut in Coachella following the release of her first album and sang a dynamite rendition of “Truth Hurts"

LIZZO OWNS THE GRAMMYS

Lizzo has more nominations than any of the established artists and leads the field of newbies Billie Eilish and country-rap superstar Lil Nas X, who got six nominations each.

Shortly after Alicia Keys and Bebe Rexha announced the coveted nominations, Lizzo tweeted:

"Feeling good as hell!"

THE LONG ROAD TO SUCCESS

Although to others it may look as if Lizzo's ascension to music superstardom happened overnight when "Truth Hurts" hit #1, the truth is that the rapper has been knocking on doors, sharing her music for 3 hard years, to no avail.

LIZZO MAKES GRAMMY HISTORY

Lizzo and fellow nominee EIlish were nominated for the top four categories: record, album, song and best new artist.

This is a historic first in the Awars'd 62 years, and it would be even more fabulous if she won all four...

LIZZO IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS

Rapper Lizzo wouldn't have believed it if a fortune teller had told her at the beginning of 2019 that she would become the hottest overnight sensation of the decade, and on the cover of one of the most prestigious fashion magazines.

In April, Lizzo made her debut in Coachella following the release of her first album and sang a dynamite rendition of “Truth Hurts" which blew Rihanna away.

Now there she is, in all her glory: large as life and twice as beautiful in an outfit from Rihanna's Savage X Fenty line, dripping diamonds by De Beers on the October cover of Elle.

And this is just the beginning...
