Grammys bosses quickly backtracked after missing Olivia Rodrigo’s nod for best music video while announcing the nominations.

.

The Drivers License singer, 18, has been mentioned in no less than seven categories for the upcoming awards ceremony, which will be taking place at the Crypto.com Arena in LA, on January 31, 2022.

However, there appeared to be a mishap when revealing the names in the mix for the best music video gong.

The announcer confirmed that AC/DC, Jon Batiste, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X had scooped a nomination but then went on to the next category, despite Olivia’s name flashing up with Good 4 U.

Fans were left unimpressed by the scenes, and flocked to Twitter to share their annoyance at the teenager being left off the list.

‘Olivia Rodrigo’s FIRST ever grammy nomination and she got SKIPPED …………. bye,’ one fumed.

A follower screamed: ‘SHE FORGOT TO SAY GOOD FOR YOU BUT IT WAS ON THE SCREEN???? IS OLIVIA RODRIGO A GRAMMY NOMINEE????’

‘Olivia Rodrigo did not write songs crying in the bathroom floor for you to skip her name!!! 

#GRAMMYs Hey @RecordingAcad the woman forgot to mention Olivia Rodrigo. She must be devastaded.

‘WHAT THE F**K IS UP WITH THAT?? #GRAMMYs,’ a Twitter user added, riffing on the lyrics to her newly-nominated banger.

It was up to Harvey Mason Jr, the CEO of the Recording Academy, to correct the error before the final musicians were announced. 

‘First, I’d like to mention, there was one nominee we didn’t announce in the best music video category, and that’s Good 4 U by Olivia Rodrigo,’ he said. ‘Congratulations!’

She has also been tipped for best new artist and best solo performance, rounding her tally up to seven nominations.

Not too shabby for her debut Grammys!
