Yep, the 18-year-old musician and actress, who became a worldwide phenomenon after the release of her debut single driver’s license and sad girl breakup album SOUR, has scored herself multiple nominations for the prestigious music award.

And they say nothing good comes out of a breakup…

So what exactly are the nominations? Well…

Olivia’s hit song driver’s license earned her a nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year. Go absolutely off.

Meanwhile, SOUR has been nominated for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album.

Her good 4 u music video, directed by Petra Collins, is up for Best Music Video. 

And Olivia herself is nominated for Best New Artist against Arooj Aftab, Jimmie Allen, Baby Keem, FINNEAS, Glass Animals, Japanese Breakfast, The Kid LAROI, Arlo Parks, and Saweetie.

The singer-songwriter responded to the nominations via her Instagram, explaining that she woke up to the news and was “beyond humbled”, before recounting the times that she and her family would visit the Staples Centre where the GRAMMYs are held.

“i would always walk outside the arena and look at the plaques on the ground with all the winners names in wide eyed wonder,” she wrote.

“i went to the Grammy museum so many of my free weekends bc I was so fascinated by the history of the show and all of the incredible musicians that made it up. many dreams have come true for me this year but this one is probably the most meaningful.

“thank you to everyone who has believed in me and supported the songs I write. and thank you to @recordingacademy for the recognition. I’m beyond humbled. truly a day I will never forget. so grateful aghhh❤️💜❤️💜.”

We just know her idol Taylor Swift will be so proud 😢😢.

Joining Olivia with quite a few nominations to their names are Jon Batiste with 11, followed by Doja Cat, H.E.R., and Justin Bieber, all with 8, Billie Eilish with seven, and Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett with five. 

The awards show itself is set to be different this time around, with the Recording Academy recently announcing they will be implementing an inclusion rider which aims to diversify the candidate pool when it comes to casting, and encourages hiring people who have been typically “under-represented” in the media.

According to the Recording Academy’s Rider, this umbrella term “encompasses people from communities that historically have been under-represented in the Broadcasts”.

Olivia started her career on Disney’s Bizaardvark – yes, the show that once featured Jake Paul.

She reached new fame when cast as Nini on Disney+’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series alongside her now reported ex, Joshua Bassett.

But it has been her music that has truly elevated the performer to new levels of stardom, with her breakup album resonating with teenagers everywhere.

Seriously, when she said she was “crying on the floor of my bathroom” in good 4 u… we felt that.

Let’s hope they turn into tears of joy if Olivia takes home a GRAMMY (or seven) on January 31st.
