The 2016 Grammy nominations are finally here! The full list of nominees for the 58th Grammy Awards, taking place in February 2016, has arrived.

Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with a whopping 11 nominations thanks to his 'To Pimp a Butterfly' album, while The Weeknd managed an impressive seven nods, with Drake following not too far behind with five nominations. 

J Cole, Dr Dre, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj will go head-to-head to take home the coveted 'Best Rap Album' award, while Fetty Wap's 'Trap Queen,' Kendrick Lamar's 'Alright' and Drake's 'Energy' will all compete to win 'Best Rap Song.'

The biggest surprise of all comes in the 'Best Rap Performance' category, where Drake's 'Back To Back' - a freestyle Drizzy wrote hastily to take aim at Meek Mill - is nominated. Will Meek ever live it down?
