And the nominees are...
On Tuesday, Nov. 24, talented artists from around the world received nominations for the 2021 Grammys. This year, many stars received a Grammy nomination for the very first time, including Harry Styles and Megan Thee Stallion. Megan was surprised by the Recording Academy's Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. during the announcement ceremony when, as she was announcing the nominations, it was revealed she herself received multiple nods!
Surprisingly, BTS also received their first-ever nomination, receiving recognition for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their hit song "Dynamite." The group reacted with a sweet post on social media, showing the stars cheering as their nomination was announced.
Doja Cat, who received multiple Grammy nominations for her hit song "Say So," recently shared a bet she made with her friend over the award show. During a press room interview at the 2020 American Music Awards, the singer spoke out about the possibility of receiving a Grammy nod.
"It being 2020, I expect the worst every day and I am really just kind of doing what I can. I am being creative and whatnot," she shared. "To see an award come out, if it's the Grammys, one [of] my friends has to get a tattoo of my name...My DJ from day one has to get a tattoo right on his ass cheek…I'm really excited if that does happen."
Let's take a look at all of the talented artists who just received their first-ever Grammy nomination!
