ABBA & Diana Ross earn Grammy nominations

CBS/Recording Academy

Last year, ABBA released Voyage, their first album in 40 years, and now, they are getting some Grammy love for it.

Nominees for the 65th annual Grammy Awards are out, with ABBA earning four nods, including two in the major categories: “Don’t Shut Me Down” is nominated for Record of the Year, and Voyage for Album of the Year. They also earned nods for Best Pop Vocal Album for Voyage and Best Pop/Duo Group performance for “Don't Shut Me Down.”

Should they pick up a win in any category, it will be the Swedish band’s first-ever Grammy award. They received their first-ever nomination in 2021 for Record of the Year for the Voyage track “I Still Have Faith In You.”

Also receiving a Grammy nod this year is Diana Ross. Thank You, her first album of original material since 1999, was nominated for the Best Pop Traditional Vocal Album.

The 65th annual Grammy Awards air February 5 on CBS, live from Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena.
