The Recording Academy finally announced its nominees for the 63rd Grammy Awards, and the contending artists were pretty excited to hear the good news. Read on to see some of their emotional reactions.
Megan Thee Stallion was nominated for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance. Not surprisingly, Savage was a total hit at this year's awards. So how did the four-time nominee celebrate? By inviting her fans to "drop your cashapp and #GoodNewsMegan to win some $$$." That's one generous gal!
Noah Cyrus joined Thee Stallion in the Best New Artist category. The first-time nominee was overwhelmed by the Grammy nomination and shared her emotional reaction on Instagram. "all i can say is i'm laying in bed in a puddle of tears. this is all i've ever hoped and dreamed for," Cyrus wrote.
Dua Lipa is no stranger to the Grammy Awards, as the singer won Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording in 2019. But that didn't stop the tears from flowing when she found out she was nominated for six awards this year, including Record of the Year and Album of the year for Don't Start Now and Future Nostalgia, respectively.

While other nominees were busy celebrating, Justin Bieber took a different approach. The artist received four nominations for Changes, and, much to Bieber's dismay, most of the nominations were in the pop categories. "I set out to make an R&B album. Changes was and is an R&B album," he wrote.
"It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me." Justin then clarified, "My gratitude for feeling respected for my work remains and I am honored to be nominated either way." The award show is set to take place on January 31, 2021, in Los Angeles. We can't wait!
