The nominations for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards have been announced. While it’s probably not a surprise, Beyoncé is leading the pack with a whopping nine nominations.
The music mogul is followed by Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Roddy Ricch with six nominations each.
CNN reports that the host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, will be hosting the awards scheduled to take place on 31 January 2021.
In a statement released by the comedian, he shared his excitement.
"Despite the fact that I am extremely disappointed that the Grammys have refused to have me sing or be nominated for best pop album, I am thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event. I think as a one-time Grammy-nominee, I am the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night because I too know the pain of not winning the award. (This is a metaphorical shoulder, I’m not trying to catch Corona.) See you at the 63rd GRAMMY’s!"
Noah was, of course, referring to his nomination in the Best Comedy Album category for his stand-up special Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia in 2020.
The nominations for the coveted song of the year category are:
Black Parade – Beyoncé
The Box – Roddy Ricch
Cardigan – Taylor Swift
Circles – Post Malone
Don’t Start Now – Dua Lipa
Everything I Wanted – Billie Eilish
I Can’t Breathe – H.E.R.
If The World Was Ending – JP Saxe and Julia Michaels
