Comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah is set to host the 2021 Grammy Awards as announced by the Recording Academy.

"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", Noah said in a statement.

The 2021 Grammy Awards are produced by Fulwell 73 Productions for the Recording Academy.

Louis Kevin Célestin, known as Kaytranada, is also nominated in the best electronic/dance performance category for "10%' and best electronic/dance album for 'BUBBA".

"To the Grammys I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry". I am very meticulous and intentional about my music.

Swift and British singer Dua Lipa will compete for the top prize - album of the year - along with Post Malone, Coldplay, Haim, Jacob Collier, the Black Pumas and alternative R&B singer Jhene Aiko. "Changes was and is an R&B album", Justin's note says.

"I grew up admiring R&B music and wished to make a project that would embody that sound".

"For this not to be put into that category feels weird, considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style, all the way down to the hip-hop drums that were chosen, it is undeniably, unmistakably an R&B album!" Luckily, the world got to find out alongside the pop sensation as she was surprised with her nominations on camera thanks to the Recording Acadamy's Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr.
