The Nominations For The 63rd Grammy Awards Are Here

The nominations for the 2021 Grammys have arrived, and nothing about them are really all that surprising. Lots of big publications have been writing about their predictions for the past few weeks, and they seemed to be somewhat accurate, minus some major snubs from artists like The Weeknd, Fiona Apple, and The Chicks. The nominations for AOTY are also a bit all over the place. I for one, did not realize that Coldplay even released an eligible album..

Beyonce leads the pool with nine nominations, followed by Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and Roddy Ricch with six apiece.
