The Grammys are going to look very different next year, and not just because of the pandemic … Kanye‘s making a big move and Alex Trebek‘s in the fold.
Nominations for the 2021 Grammys are out, and there’s lots of interesting changes to digest. Trevor Noah‘s hosting and he might have some fun with this — Kanye is now officially considered a Christian artist.
Yeezy’s “Jesus Is King” is up for best contemporary Christian music album … it’s the next stage in Kanye’s transformation, which traces roots back to his Sunday Service.
Trebek’s also got a shot at posthumous glory … the late “Jeopardy!” host and TV icon’s audiobook is nominated for best spoken word album. Ken Jennings helped Alex narrate the memoir, and would accept the award if the ‘Jeopardy’ duo wins.
One celeb who won’t be taking home any hardware — The Weeknd. He’s shockingly snubbed even though his single, “Blinding Lights,” topped the charts and his album, “After Hours,” rose to #1.
Guess The Weeknd will have to settle for performing the Super Bowl halftime show a week after the Grammys.
Yeah, Trevor’s got a lot of material to work with.
