Alessia Cara, Shawn Mendes and Janelle Monae announced the nominees in the top General Field categories this morning on CBS This Morning and on Apple Music.  The announcement was postponed from the originally-scheduled Wednesday date so it wouldn’t compete with the public memorial for former President George H.W.
