Demi Lovato has a lot to celebrate!

The 26-year-old singer took to social media on Friday following the news that she'd scored her second Grammy nomination. This year's nod — Best Pop Duo/Group Performance — is for Christina Aguilera's track, "Fall In Line," on which Lovato was featured. Prior to this year's recognition, Lovato earned a Best Pop Vocal Album nomination for "Confident."

On Twitter, Lovato said that the nomination gave her hope. "Woke up filled with hope," she wrote. "Dreams come true y’all… thank you @xtina. I love you so much."

Over on her Instagram Story, Lovato called the nomination "a dream come true."

"What a dream come true," she wrote over a pic of the nomination announcement. "Can't believe I'm nominated for a GRAMMY with someone I grew up singing to.. my idol forever. Love you sis, thank you."

It's clearly a mutual adoration between Lovato and Aguilera! Earlier this week, Aguilera took to Lovato's Instagram comments to say that she missed the younger singer.

"And we keep on tickin — till the end of time – I looooove youuuuu!" the 37-year-old musician gushed. "Can’t wait to continue to heave [sic] you by side now."

The nominations came just hours after Lovato shared her Spotify streaming stats over the last year and thanked her fans for listening to her songs one billion times on the platform.

"1,000,000,000 thank you #lovatics and @spotify," she wrote on Instagram. "I love you all."

The uplifting posts from Lovato come just over a month after she left rehab, where she received three months of treatment following her apparent drug overdose in July.

Following her release, Lovato unfollowed several celebrity friends on social media, and a source recently told ET the move was so she could "focus on herself" and "avoid any difficult relationship."

"She needs to surround herself with those that support her goals and to stay away from any negativity," the source said. "Demi has come a very long way. She's grown emotionally and matured a great deal through this process. She realizes there is no quick fix and has accepted the fact she needs to take this one day at a time. She still has a sober companion and she has built a very strong support group."

"She has committed to her sobriety right now," the source added. "It is No. 1, and she is literally taking it one day at a time. She considers each sober day a huge accomplishment."

2019 Grammy nominations snubs and surprises: Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and other artists highlighted

The nominations for the 2019 Grammys were officially released Friday morning, and with the news comes both snubs and surprises.

Rappers Drake and Kendrick Lamar lead this year’s nominations in the biggest four categories, which generally refer to record of the year, song of the year, album of the year and best new artist. Lamar received eight nominations, while Drake received seven.

As the New York Times notes, women also lead in some of the biggest categories this year; the awards show received criticism for a lack of diversity in the past.

But the nominations also resulted in snubs for some of the music industry’s biggest stars, such as Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, among others.

Check out some of the biggest snubs and surprises from the 2019 Grammys nominations ahead of the show on Feb. 10, which you can catch live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.

Snubs

Taylor Swift

Singer and songwriter Taylor Swift is usually one to take home gold during the Grammys, boasting 10 wins to-date. But Swift was snubbed this year, earning just one nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album for her 2017 album “Reputation” — narrowing her chances for another win.

Beyonce & Jay Z

Earlier this year, singer Beyonce and her husband and rapper Jay Z released an album called “Everything Is Love.” While both artists have done well in the past on their own — Beyonce with 22 wins to-date and Jay Z follows just behind with 21 — the couple didn’t receive any nominations in the main categories this year, such as Album Of The Year or Song Of The Year.

“Everything Is Love” was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album. “The Carters” also received a nomination for Best R&B Performance for their song “Summer.” Lastly, their song "Apes***" also received a nomination for Best Music Video.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande’s fourth studio album “Sweetener” was nominated  for Best Pop Vocal Album, while she also received a nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance for her song “God Is A Woman.”

The 25-year-old has never won a Grammy or received a nomination in any of the biggest categories.

Kanye West

Rapper Kanye West has received 69 Grammys nominations to-date, some of which were in coveted categories such as Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year. But West has only ever won big in smaller categories such as Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

This year, the rapper received just one nomination for Producer of the Year in the non-classical category.

Lil Wayne

The release of Lil Wayne’s album “Tha Carter V” was “highly anticipated” by his fans, Rolling Stone reported, as the album took years to make. But the rapper, who has received 24 nominations to-date, did not receive any nominations this year.

Justin Timberlake

Pop star Justin Timberlake — who is no stranger to Grammys nominations and wins — received just one nomination in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category for his song “Say Something” with Chris Stapleton. It was the only nomination Timberlake received this year in relation to his album “Man of the Woods,” which was released in February.

Surprises

“Black Panther” soundtrack 

The soundtrack to the movie “Black Panther” received a nomination for Album Of The Year, making it just the thirteenth movie soundtrack to ever receive this nomination, People reported.

The Backstreet Boys

The boy band the Backstreet Boys, which first saw fame in the 1990s, is making a comeback with their first nomination in 17 years, People also reported. The group snagged a nod for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” which they released over the summer.

Mac Miller

Mac Miller, who died of an accidental overdose earlier this year, received his first-ever Grammy nomination for his album “Swimming,” according to Billboard.

Miller’s album was nominated for Best Rap Album.

The 28-year-old country singer received five nominations this year, but perhaps the most notable one, according to People, is for “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters.”

The cover is for her album "Restoration: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin."

Kendrick Lamar is No. 1 with eight Grammy nominations, including top prizes including album, song and record of the year for his "Black Panther" soundtrack. Last year, Lamar garnered seven nominations.

Drake earned seven nominations and also scored nods for the big three. Drake's frequent collaborator, producer Boi-1Da, earned six nods. So did Brandi Carlile, who earned nominations in the top three categories as well as nominations in the American Roots category.

2019 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS: 'BLACK PANTHER,' CARDI B, DRAKE SCORE BIG

Who is up for Best New Artist?

Chloe X Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, H.E.R., Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith are up for Best New Artist.

Anything else I need to know?

Women performers were underrepresented in the top four categories and in the awards broadcast at the Grammys earlier this year, but will have a strong presence at the upcoming show. Five of the eight album of the year nominees are women, including Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, H.E.R. and Carlile.

There will also be a few noticeable changes at the 2019 event.

For Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Arist, there will now be eight nominees instead of five — with the hope the increased number will allow a more diverse selection, according to The Boot.

It's a busy week for the entertainment world: Nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes come out Thursday.

Bush's body arrived Monday in Washington for public viewing, which kicks off four days of events that will include a state funeral at Washington's National Cathedral on Wednesday and a private service at Bush's longtime church in Houston on Thursday.
