She is up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Music Video for Rolling in the Deep, as well as Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for 21 and Best Pop Solo Performance for Someone Like You.
Only Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars have the same number of nominations, while Kanye West has seven nods.
The 54th Grammy award nominations were announced at a huge event, which was a musical show in itself. Broadcast live in the US, the one-hour concert featured performances from Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
Also supporting Adele on her year of stardom is Paul Epworth, who has received his own nomination for Producer of the Year. He produced Adele’s tracks I’ll Be Waiting and Rolling in the Deep, as well as No One’s Gonna Love You by Cee-Lo Green and songs by Foster the People.
Adele will go up against Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Rihanna for the highly-coveted Album of the Year category, while Mumford & Sons will be vying for the British vote as their song The Cave is also up for Record of the Year.
Katy Perry’s Firework is also in contention in this category, as well as Holocene by Bon Iver and Bruno Mars’ Grenade.
The Grammys are perhaps the most prestigious recognition in the music industry, so a win for Adele, who is currently recovering from throat surgery, would undoubtedly top off a whirlwind year for the star.
Earlier this month, her album 21 broke the record for the most number of iTunes downloads in Europe in just 11 months since its release. She has sold more than one million digital copies of her second album.
Winners will be announced on February 12th 2012.
