Noah himself received a Grammy nod back in 2020.
For the second year in a row, Trevor Noah will host the Grammy Awards this coming January.
The 64th edition of the award show celebrating all things music will be hosted by the star of The Daily Show after his turn MC-ing the 2021 Grammys.
Trevor Noah was a nominee himself in the past, getting a nod for Best Comedy Album with Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia in 2020.
The complete list of nominations was announced last week, with R&B singer Jon Batiste receiving the most nods with eleven. He was nominated for some of the most significant awards, including Record of the Year, Best R&B Album and the much-coveted Album of the Year.
Last year's Album of the Year award Taylor Swift was nominated again in that category for Evermore, while Kanye West, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber and Olivia Rodrigo are also in contention this time around.
Although no Irish artists made the cut this year, Rhiannon Giddens is nominated for Best Folk Album for They're Calling Me Home, which was recorded in Ireland.
The 2022 Grammys will have a few changes compared to previous editions. In April, the institution ended the practice of secret-committee nominations in its Big Four categories and established two new awards for Música Urbana Album and Global Music Performance. The ceremony is also being produced with an inclusion rider for the first time after expanding its voting pool to include more voters from "traditionally underrepresented groups."
