The Nominations, The Snubs and The Surprises!

The 2021 Grammy Nominations are here!

Beyoncé leads the nominations with 9 overall, Taylor Swift, Roddy Ricch and Dua Lipa got 6 nods.

Beyoncé is the Grammy’s most nominated female artist ever.

She now has 79 total nominations meaning she’s tied with Sir Paul McCartney for the second-most nominated of all time

Her husband Jay Z and Quincy Jones are the most nominated with 80 overall.

Shockingly, The Weeknd picked up zero nominations

He wrote on Instagram: “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by The Weeknd (@theweeknd)

Justin Bieber got four nominations but he’s not happy because he was given the honors in the Pop category and not the R&B category.

“I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry. With that being said, I set out to make an R&B album. ‘Changes’ was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album, which is very strange to me.”

Meanwhile, BTS made history by becoming the first Korean act to get a Grammy nomination after their nod for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

The Grammy’s will take place on January 31 with Trevor Noah hosting.
