Finally, the much anticipated 63rd Grammy Award Show took place last night (Sunday 14 March 2021) amid rising calls for boycott by key artists. The Weeknd vowed to boycott the Grammy Awards moving forward after his controversial snub from this year’s nominations by Recording Academy. Justin Bieber on the other hand, made good his promise to snub the show ultimately giving the awards ceremony a wide birth. The singer claimed the main reason why he chose not to perform at the ceremony is because his album Changes was nominated under the pop category rather than the R&B category that the album was classified to be.
