The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards Promises to Unite and Uplift
The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held in and around the Los Angeles Convention Center on March 14, 2021. Leading the pack this year are recordings representing a wide range of musical genres, including pop, classical, jazz, rap, R&B and rock. Top nominees include Beyoncé (9), Dua Lipa (6), Roddy Ricch (6), Taylor Swift (6), Brittany Howard (5), John Beasley (4), Justin Bieber (4), Phoebe Bridgers (4), DaBaby (4), Billie Eilish (4), David Frost (4) and Megan Thee Stallion (4). As the only peer-selected music accolade, the GRAMMY Awards are voted on by the Recording Academy’s voting membership body of music makers, who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers and engineers. This year, the Academy received a total of 23,207 entries for GRAMMY® consideration, setting the record for the most entries in a single year.
“This has been a tough year for our industry, but I have witnessed, day after day, the incredible resiliency of the music community,” said Mason. “This year’s nominated recordings are proof that the creative spirit continues to be alive and well, and our nominees are a testament to the passion and perseverance that our community embodies. I’m endlessly amazed that so many music creators continue to use their craft to tell important stories, providing a dynamic soundtrack that both directly impacts and reflects our culture. I truly believe in the power of music, and the 63RD GRAMMYs® will be an opportunity to help us unite, uplift and inspire.”
This year’s nominees were voted on by Recording Academy voting members from more than 23,000 submissions and reflect the wide range of artistic innovation that defined the year in music (Sept. 1, 2019–August 31, 2020). The final round of GRAMMY voting was Dec. 7, 2020–Jan. 4, 2021.
