Beyoncé's "Black Parade", released on Juneteenth, is up for four awards including record and song of the year. Last year, Billie Eilish's brother Finneas, who produces her music and co-writes her songs with her, won the honour.

Others who scored their first-ever nominations include Harry Styles, Megan Thee Stallion, the Strokes, Jay Electronica, Michael Kiwanuka and Mickey Guyton.

Is Justin Bieber going to win an award at the Grammy Awards?

This is the second year in a row that the singer is getting a nomination in this category.

Twice As Tall is a 15-track album which was released on August 14th is a follow up to his critically acclaimed 2019 album "African Giant". Morgan Wallen also had a great year in country music, but didn't earn any nods. Let's break down some of the surprise Latinx nominations.

Along with most of the rest of the world, The Weeknd's team and Grammy organisers assumed that he would be one of the year's biggest nominees and were in advanced discussions about his performance on the show.

After dropping a widely praised album after a 14-year hiatus and a name change, The Chicks were also ignored, as was Bob Dylan, who this year released his first collection of original music in almost a decade. "You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency", he said in his tweet. In the Q&A, he acknowledged that he thought "Blinding Lights" had a shot at winning a Grammy Award in 2021 which added to the shock of The Weeknd not being nominated at all. I am very meticulous and intentional about my music.

I think its meaningful.

Asked by Variety about The Weeknd getting shut out, Recording Academy interim chief Harvey Mason, jr. said Tuesday, 'It really just comes down to the voting body that decides.

Being nominated in a general category (Best Pop Duo/Group Performance) was already an uphill battle but, there's so much more work to be done towards inclusiveness here.

The Canadian pop star had been expected to perform strongly, thanks to his hit album After Hours and the single Blinding Lights, which is the longest-running top 10 hit in United States chart history.

Popular Rapper, Nicki Minaj has dragged organisers of Grammys for denying her the award for "Best new artist" in 2012. The foursome Little Big Town, which features two female vocalists, round out the five nominees.

It's definitely shameful that The Weeknd was not nominated.

Singer Taylor Swift, rapper Roddy Ricch and band Coldplay were among the other acts to be shortlisted.
