Earlier this morning, the full list of nominees for the upcoming 2018 GRAMMYs was revealed, and while the most attention was paid to the big four categories—Album, Record, Song of the Year and Best New Artist—there are more than 80 verticals and hundreds of people nominated.

One group that is always comprised of both superstars and lesser-known musicians, Best Music Video, is going to be especially contentious this time around. If you're not already familiar with the five videos up for this prize, learn more now.

#1Beck - “Up All Night”

One of the cooler tracks on Beck’s new upbeat record Colors, “Up All Night” comes with an equally-as-cool visual that doesn’t focus on the man behind the song at all. The clip sees a young girl donning armor and kicking ass, all in the interest of saving her friend. A healthy mix of visual effects and a young female superhero (in the style of Eleven from Stanger Things) makes this a potential winner.
