Grammy Awards

The 2021 Grammy nominations are out. Right out. There’s no putting them back in now. Shortlists for all 83 categories have been made public. Yes, even Best Album Notes. That’s the big one everyone’s talking about.

Presenter of ‘The Daily Show’ Trevor Noah has also been announced as the host of this year’s awards. He said yesterday: “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”.

Noting his 2020 nomination in the Best Comedy Album award category, he went on: “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!”
