The show must go on. The 63rd Grammy Award nominees have been unveiled, so check out to see which of your favorite music stars were nominated.

My Celebrity Life –

The Recording Academy rolled out its list of nominees for the 63rd Grammy Awards on Nov. 24. Interim Recording Academy president Harvey Mason Jr. was joined by music stars Dua LipaImogen HeapLauren Daigle, Mickey Guyton, Yemi Alade, Nicole Benedetti, Pepe Aguilar, and Sharon Osbourne to announce the artists that will be up for a Grammy when the ceremony takes place on Jan. 31, 2021. Though the past twelve months will likely go down as one of the worst years in recent history, 2020 produced some incredible albums from some of the biggest stars – The Weeknd, Fiona Apple, Taylor Swift, Bob Dylan, Dua, etc. – and the Academy made sure to celebrate them with their nominees

It’s still unclear just how the 63rd Grammy Awards will look like. COVID numbers in America are starting to rise again, meaning that an in-house audience seems unlikely. Will “Music’s Biggest Night” be completely virtual like the BET Awards, or live like the VMAs? It’s all up in the air, but one this is certain: there will be a dash of comedy. Hours before the nominations were rolled out, the Recording Academy (formerly the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) announced that The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah would host the show.

This marks the first time that Trevor, 36, has hosted a major awards show. He takes over for Alicia Keys, who hosted for the past two years. “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,” said Noah in a statement, per Rolling Stone.

“I think as a one-time Grammy nominee,” he added (he was nominated for Best Comedy Album in 2020 but lost to Dave Chapelle), “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!”

The 2020 Grammys took place hours after Kobe Bryant was killed — alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others – in a helicopter crash outside Calabasas, California. The loss permeated throughout the ceremony, which took place at the Staples Center (home to the Los Angeles Lakers, the team Kobe played with for 20 years.) While the 62nd Grammys will be remembered for being an impromptu memorial for the basketball icon, it will also go down as the night Billie Eilish won everything. She swept the top four major categories – Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist – the first person to do so since Christopher Cross in 1981.
