By Zach Harper

Justin Bieber, Drake and The Weeknd are among the Canadian superstars who've landed 2022 GRAMMY nominations.

Justin picked up eight nods when the nominees were announced on Nov. 23, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year, capping off what's been an incredible comeback following the release of his Justice album earlier this year.

Leading the pack of nominees this year is former The Late Show with Stephen Colbert musical director Jon Batiste, who's not only up for some of the biggest awards of the year for his We Are album, but also received nods for his Soul score.

Breakout sensation Lil Nas Xalso landed five nominations for his recently released Montero album and hits from it.

Meanwhile, Drake is up for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album. And The Weeknd – who was not nominated at all in 2021, which set off a storm of controversy – received three nods for his guest appearances on Kanye West and Doja Cat's albums.

You can watch the 2022 GRAMMYs when they're handed out on Jan 31 in a ceremony live at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
