The South African comedian Trevor Noah has been chosen to host the Grammys for a second time.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards will take place on Monday 31 January 2022 live from the Crypto.com Arena.
Dubbed “music’s biggest night”, it’s like the Oscars of the music world.
Noah, who is also the host of the popular “The Daily Show”, also hosted the 63rd Grammys in 2020. Back then he was also nominated for Best Comedy Album.
For the first time, there will be 10 nominees in each category.
Nominees for this year’s record of the year include ABBA’s “I still have faith in you”, the duet “I get a kick out of you” by Tony Bennet and Lady Gaga, as well as “Kiss me more” by Doja Cat featuring SZA.
The albums by Kanye West, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, H.E.R and Justin Bieber have all been nominated in the album of the year category.
Former United States President Barack Obama has also been nominated for the audio version of his book ‘A promised land’ in the ‘Best spoken word album (included poetry, audiobooks and storytelling)’ category.
