As for the night's potential honorees, Beyoncé tops the list with nine nominations, including a pair for Record of the Year for "Black Parade" and for her "Savage" remix with Megan Thee Stallion. Swift, Lipa, and Roddy Ricch hold six nominations each, with Lipa, who won Best New Artist at last year's awards, in the running for Record-, Album-, and Song- of the Year honors.
