LEWIS Capaldi has received his first Grammy nomination in a year dominated by rising stars Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X.

The Scottish music star, originally from Bathgate, received a songwriting nod for his breakthrough hit Someone You Loved, which has topped the charts in both the UK and the US, along with co-writers Tom Barnes, Pete Kelleher, Benjamin Kohn and Sam Roman.

Capaldi's song was a sleeper hit and finally reached number one last month after 24 weeks, making him the first Scottish artist to achieve the US chart feat in nearly 40 years.

The 23-year-old will compete with Always Remember Us This Way from A Star Is Born, Bad Guy by Billie Eilish, Bring My Flowers Now by Tanya Tucker, Hard Place by HER, Lover by Taylor Swift, Norman F****** Rockwell by Lana Del Rey and Truth Hurts by Lizzo in the song of the year category at the US awards ceremony, which will take place in January.
