2021 Grammy nominations announced

Nominations for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday, with Beyoncé leading among the nominees with nine.

Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Roddy Rich followed Queen Bey with six nominations each.

The Grammys announced “The Daily Show’s” Trevor Noah will host the event in January.

“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. 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! See you at the 63rd GRAMMYs!”, - Noah said in a statement.
