AC/DC, The Kid LAROI lead Aussie nominations for 2022 Grammys

The nominations for the 2022 Grammys are out and AC/DC, The Kid LAROI and more are offering up some Australian representation across the board.

AC/DC have scored three nominations, with their 2020 single ‘Shot In The Dark’ being up for Best Rock Performance and Best Music Video. The album from which the song was lifted – 2020’s Power Up – has also earned the band a nomination for Best Rock Album.

The three nominations bring the band’s total Grammy nominations up to 10, winning Best Hard Rock Performance for ‘War Machine’ back in 2010.

The Kid LAROI is arguably up for the biggest award out of all Aussie nominees, earning a nomination for Best New Artist. He has competition from Olivia Rodrigo, Glass Animals and more.

Grammy favourite RÜFÜS DU SOL has also earned the third Grammy nomination of their career thus far, with single ‘Alive’ being up for Best Dance/Electronic Recording.

Hiatus Kaiyote, Grammy favourites in their own right, also earned a nomination for Best Progressive R&B Album for Mood Valiant, their first album in six years.

In the technical awards, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis scored a nomination for Best Recording Package for their 2021 album Carnage. Cave has earned one other nomination previously, scoring a nod with the Bad Seeds in 2017 for Best Music Film for One More Time With Feeling.

The Grammy Awards will be held live in Los Angeles on January 31 next year.
