The Czech Music Academy has decided on the nominees for this year's Anděl awards, with prizes up for grabs in a total of 15 categories. The winners will be announced later this month on Saturday, April 15th at an awards ceremony broadcast live on Czech Television.

Miro Žbirka dominated the Anděl Awards nominations this year, with nominations in four different categories – best male artist, best album, best Slovak album and best song – more than any other artist or band this year. He passed away relatively unexpectedly in November 2021, so the song "Nejsi sám" was produced by his son David.

Rapper 7krát3 and the band Vypsáná Fixa came in just one shy of Miro Žbirka, with three nominations each: 7krát3 for Album of the Year, Best Solo Artist and Best Video, while Vypsaná fixa were nominated for Best Album, Best Band and in the Rock category.

Competing against each other in the solo artist category are singers Lenny, Pam Rabbit and Radůza. Each has a slightly different style: Lenny is mainstream pop, Pam Rabbit is more indie and alternative, while Radůza is into ballads.
