Read on to learn more about the nominations, who broke records, and also find out who is hosting the big event.

Livestream Announcement

The Recording Academy’s Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. announced the list of nominees, along with some other big names in the music and entertainment industry.

Dua Lipa, Sharon Osbourne, Imogen Heap, Lauren Daigle, Pepe Aguilar, Yemi Alade, Gayle King, and Micky Guyton read out all of the categories during the live stream on Tuesday morning.

Beyonce Snags 9 Nominations

Beyoncé earned nine nominations on Tuesday morning, making her the most-nominated female artist in Grammy history. 

She was nominated for Song of the Year, twice for Record of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best Rap Song, and four other below the line categories.

Meanwhile, following the release of her eighth album, Folklore, Taylor Swift racked up six nominations, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year. Some of the other artists who got multiple nominations include Roddy Ricch, Megan thee Stallion, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, and Billie Eilish. 

Trevor Noah Announced as Host

Along with the nominations, the Recording Academy also revealed Trevor Noah will be hosting the big show on January 31. This will be the first time The Daily Show host will be hosting the Grammys.

“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,” the comedian said in a statement.

“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 GRAMMYs!”
