Trevor Noah has been tapped as host.

The nominees for the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards are here -- with Beyonce Knowles leading the pack with a whopping nine nominations.

Close behind her with six nominations apiece were Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch, while Justin Bieber picked up four, Harry Styles took home three noms and BTS, Meghan Thee Stallion, Noah Cyrus and Doja Cat all scored their first nominations ever.

On Tuesday morning, the contenders for music's biggest night were announced by Megan Thee Stallion, Pepe Aguilar, Yemi Alade, Nicola Benedetti, Lauren Daigle, Mickey Guyton, Imogen Heap, Gayle King, Dua Lipa, Sharon Osbourne and Recording Academy President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr.

In a surprising move, Lady Gaga only picked up two nominations for "Chromatica," while The Weeknd -- whose "Blinding Lights" was a major hit in 2020 --- failed to get any recognition.

Trevor Noah was also confirmed as host.

"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," he said in a statement. "I think as a one-time Grammy nominee, I am the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night because I too know the pain of not winning the award! (This is a metaphorical shoulder, I'm not trying to catch Corona.)"

The ceremony will air Sunday, January 31, 2021 on CBS, beginning at 5pm PT.
