Beyoncé Leads The 2021 Grammy Nominations — See The Full List Here

Grammy season is here — and Beyoncé is already leading the pack.

The artist garnered a total of nine nods as the 2021 Grammy nominees were announced on Tuesday (November 24), making her the most-nominated artist this year. Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Roddy Ricch follow behind Bey with six nominations each.

Swift and Lipa are up for Album of the Year, along with Jhené Aiko, Black Pumas, Coldplay, Jacob Collier, Haim, and Post Malone. Megan Thee Stallion, who saw her star massively rise in 2020, also racked up a handful, including in the Record of the Year and Best Rap Song categories. She’s also up for Best New Artist alongside Doja Cat, Noah Cyrus, Phoebe Bridgers, D Smoke, and more.

Harry Styles, meanwhile, nabbed his first-ever Grammy noms in the Best Music Video, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album categories.

Notably, the Recording Academy — often criticized for its lack of diversity and inclusivity, and still reeling a bit from former chairman Neil Portnow’s 2018 comment that women needed to “step up” — celebrated five women acts in the Best Rock Performance category, including Fiona Apple, Big Thief, Phoebe Bridgers, Haim, Brittany Howard, and Grace Potter.

The 2021 show likely won’t look like last year’s broadcast, which featured performances that literally burnt up the stage, a star-studded ride down “Old Town Road,” and a gala of glittering red carpet gowns. But this year, awards shows as diverse as the BET Awards, the MTV VMAs and EMA, and most recently the American Music Awards learned how to go virtual — or just virtual enough (while adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols) — to make it work. The Grammys will be the first of the major awards season shows to pull off a broadcast during the pandemic.

This will also be the first Grammys ceremony since the Recording Academy dropped the word “urban” from some of its categories in June, following Tyler, the Creator’s comments at last year’s show (“I don’t like that urban word. It’s just politically correct way to say the N-word, to me.”) as well as internal upheaval within the Academy itself.

The broadcast will be hosted by The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah, who takes over from Alice Keys, who hosted the 2019 and 2020 ceremonies. “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!” he said in a press release.

The 2021 Grammys will air Sunday, January 21, 2021, on CBS. Find the nominees below.
