Troye Sivan, Kylie Minogue, Multiple Queer Artists Receive 2024 Grammy Nominations
The contenders for the 2024 Grammy Awards have been revealed, with various LGBTQI+ artists receiving nominations across multiple categories.
Nominations were announced on Friday, November 10, with a couple of Australian talents up for Grammy consideration. Notably, Troye Sivan and Kylie Minogue have received career-defining nominations for their respective releases, and will be going head-to-head in the Best Pop Dance Recording category.
“Kylie Vs. Troye”
This is the first ever nomination for Sivan, with club banger “Rush” receiving two nominations. The track is nominated for Best Pop Dance Recording and Best New Music Video.
Posting to Instagram, Sivan expressed his gratitude and shock for the nominations.
“I can’t even think – My first GRAMMY nomination…and second. A lifelong dream, no joke,” he posted.
For Minogue, “Padam” is her first grammy nomination in 15 years and will be going against “Rush” in the Best Pop Dance Recording category.
Her last nomination was back in 2009 for Best Electronic/Dance Album with “X.” Minogue won Best Dance Recording in 2004, with her classic track “Come into My World.”
Referencing her now grammy nominated song, Minogue posted her excitement to Instagram, saying “MY HEART IS PADAM-ING SO FAST RIGHT NOW.”
“Thank you SO much to EVERYONE.”
Fans have shared their excitement for the Australian artists receiving their nominations. In anticipating the Best Pop Dance Category, one Twitter user said, “Troye Vs Kylie, which Aussie will win…”
