The Recording Academy did something a little different this year to announce the nominations for the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Instead of revealing all of the nominees at once, they spaced the announcements out over the course of a suspenseful, exciting Friday.

The fun kicked off on CBS This Morning with a low-key Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams reading off four categories. The announcements moved to Twitter for several hours during the day, then completed on the TV concert special A Very GRAMMY Christmas. (Check out our photo gallery of moments from that show.) So now the complete list is finally here. 

Among the big victories of #nomday are six-time nominee Sam Smith and four-time nominees Iggy AzaleaSia, Pharrell and Usher (twice as lead artist, twice as featured artist). Among the artists who got three nods are DrakeTaylor SwiftJhené AikoChris Brown and Rick Ross (as a featured artist). Beyoncé also passed Dolly Parton to become the most-nominated female artist of all time. (Read our full story on Beyoncé's accomplishment here.) Now, check out highlights from the big ol' list here:

For the first announcements on CBS This Morning, Pharrell and Sheeran had the honors of announcing nominations for each other. First Pharrell read off Sheeran's name for Best Pop Vocal Album. Then Sheeran returned the favor by listing Pharrell when GIRL took a nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Sheeran, for his part, wasn't surprised by his nomination. “I have to be honest," he admitted on air. "I had a peak earlier."

All told, the two were pretty calm considering they both had just become 2015 GRAMMY nominees. "It’s just super early," explained Pharrell. "And we’re just trying to not geek out in front of everybody. This is national TV. We’re very excited."

Showing delightfully little emotion Sheeran confirmed: "This is my excited face."

The eligibility window for this year's GRAMMY awards runs from October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014. That explains, for example, why we're flashing back to Beyoncé's surprise visual album. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift's 1989 isn't up for competition until next year. But her single "Shake It Off," which premiered this August, actually is eligible.

The GRAMMYs themselves will air on Sunday, February 8, 2015, so you'll have to wait another two months to see who wins, who performs and who wears the absolute craziest outfit.
