2021 Grammys

Taylor Swift and Beyoncé could make history at the 2021 Grammys

Swifties and the Beyhive might both come away quite satisfied from this year's Grammys.

The 2021 Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday after being delayed almost two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and many pundits are predicting Taylor Swift will score the Album of the Year prize for her hit quarantine album Folklore — though some think it might instead go to Dua Lipa for Future Nostalgia.

Were Swift to win, though, she would make history, as Gold Derby notes she would become the first female artist to win that award three times after previously earning it for Fearless and 1989.

Beyoncé is expected to have a big night, too. She led the Grammy nominations this year with nine, and Gold Derby predicts she'll become the "most awarded woman of all time" with a total of 29 Grammys after possibly taking five more on Sunday, including Best R&B Performance for "Black Parade" and Best Rap Performance for "Savage."

Dua Lipa could also be set to score Record of the Year for "Don't Start Now," though don't count out Beyoncé for "Black Parade," while Song of the Year might again go to Swift for "Cardigan," and this year's Best New Artist winner may be Megan Thee Stallion.

The 2021 Grammys will be held in Los Angeles featuring a "mix of live, in-person and pre-taped, video-linked appearances," Pitchfork reports, with Swift, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, and Megan Thee Stallion among the artists set to perform. The show won't be happening without a fair bit of controversy, though, after The Weeknd was famously snubbed this year and vowed this week to permanently boycott the awards show from now on.

The Grammys, which will be hosted by The Daily Show's Trevor Noah, will air on March 14 on CBS.
