Halsey also chimes in on BTS, believing they too "deserved many nominations."

While Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X woke up to some seriously good news this morning thanks to the Grammy Award nominations, not everyone was feeling the love from the Recording Academy.

For every surprise or well-deserved nod, there's always a snub or two to go with it.

Though Taylor Swift picked up three nominations for "Lover," she was left out of the top-tier Record and Album of the Year categories. Halsey, meanwhile, was nowhere to be found, despite her massive single "Without Me" being a strong contender for Song and Record of the Year.

Other surprising omissions: BTS, Bruce Springsteen and Megan Thee Stallion failing to garner any nominations, Maren Morris only scoring a nod for her Brandi Carlile duet and the Jonas Brothers' comeback album getting recognition in just one category. Beyonce's "Homecoming" also failed to get much love.

Halsey was one of the first to react to her snub this morning, while also sharing her disappointment that BTS -- with whom she collaborated on "Boy with Luv" -- was in the same boat.

"my fans 💕 please do not waste your anger or frustration. i see a lot of you are upset. of course im sad too. none of it matters," she tweeted. "literally none of it. you're here. im here. + everything is gonna stay exactly the same and without me is still a super tight, record breaking song."

"congrats to the nominees. so much great music nominated this year," she continued. "definitely see a lot of my friends and colleagues missing from the nom lists, but the music speaks! this is how it goes every year right?"

To the BTS ARMY, she added, "BTS deserved many nominations. I am however, unsurprised that they weren't acknowledged. the US is so far behind on the whole movement. the time will come."

Swift, however, showed nothing but excitement in her Instagram Story as she reacted to her three nominations.

"LOVER IS NOMINATED FOR SONG OF THE YEAR AT THE GRAMMYS!!!" she said in her post. "Wrote this one alone in a quiet moments and seeing it honored in the Song of the Year category by my peers means so much, wow...3 noms guys!!!!"

The Jonas Brothers were also excited about their sole nomination, sharing video of the moment they learned they had been recognized. Watch that video below.

The 62nd Grammy Awards will take place on January 26, 2020 at LA's Staples Center, with Alicia Keys returning once again to host.
