Grammys 2021
Harry Styles performs live.

New news to few homebodies and music lovers, the 63rd annual Grammy Awards will finally take place on Sunday, March 14, on CBS, after being postponed for over two months due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event, celebrating the best of the best in music, will be live-streamed from the Staples Center in Los Angeles and hosted by Trevor Noah. Performances include—but aren’t limited to—Harry Styles’ highly anticipated opening number, as well as live music from Meghan Thee Stallion, Dua Lipa, Cardi B, and Taylor Swift.

But besides the performances, we can’t help but procrastinate our Friday to-do list by thinking about who will take home a Grammy this weekend. It’s amazing—emotional, even—to think that despite all of the hardships presented in 2020, artists continued to produce content that served as the playlist of many people’s lives, be it while mourning, celebrating, and quarantining. Ahead, GRAZIA compiled a list of nominations you need to know about. Be sure to check back after the show to find out the winner in each category.
