Grammy’s “Best New Artist” Nominees

grammysFebruary 15th, 2016 is the night we have all been waiting for. Each year, the Grammy’s take over television for over three, very long, hours. People all over the world stop to watch performances, witness celebrities do some crazy things and most importantly, we are #Blessed to see these stars in the most ridiculous outfits imaginable. Not to mention, on this very night, we may even dismiss the fact that Donald Trump is leading the Republican party and instead, focus on topics that truly matter.

On February 15th, the Grammy’s will return to the Staples Center in L.A. With 83 categories across the board, we decided to take a look at the hottest names of a particular group of nominees (and no, I am not referring to someone such as Alicia Keys, who by the way, is a 15-time Grammy Award winner). Interestingly enough, Whitepages data told us there are only 27 people in the US with this EXACT name! Hey…she’s won more than half the amount of Grammy’s in comparison!

These new artists have certainly created a name for themselves and we are giving you a sneak peek at just how popular their names are! Check out what we found using the Whitepages Names Database:

300,894 people with this name, the most in CA (20,198). More than 80% of these people are below the age of 30.
