Iggy Azalea, Sia and Keith Urban better order big limousines for the Grammy Awards.

They might need the extra space for all of the trophies they could be taking home.

The Australian trio will compete with the elite of the music world after bagging multiple Grammy Award nominations in major categories on Friday.

Azalea was also nominated for the New Artist award, Rap Album for The New Classic and Pop Duo/Group Performance for Fancy.

Sia, for her hit Chandelier, is also in the running for Song of the Year, Pop Solo Performance and Music Video.

“I don’t know what to say so thank you,” Sia, the publicity shy, Adelaide-born singer-songwriter wrote in a tweet to fans.

Urban is a veteran at Grammy ceremonies.

He is nominated this time around for Solo Country Performance for Cop Car and Country Duo/Group Performance (Raise ‘Em Up with Eric Church).

US rocker Pink received a nod in the Best Music Film category for The Truth About Love Tour: Live From Melbourne.

The Grammys are the most prestigious music awards night of the year and this year instead of a traditional nomination ceremony the organisation behind the event, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, opted to gradually reveal the nominees throughout Friday (Saturday AEDT).

The final announcement will be the Album of the Year nominees on Friday evening (2pm Saturday AEDT).

For Song of the Year, Sia and her American co-producer Jesse Shatikin, are up against Swift’s Shake it Off, Trainor’s All About That Bass, Smith’s Stay With Me and Andrew Hozier-Byrne’s Take Me to Church.

Azalea’s competition for New Artist are Bastille, Brandy Clark, Haim and Smith.

The Grammy Awards winners will be announced on February 8.
