There are plenty of reasons to be excited about this weekend鈥檚 Grammy Awards 鈥 for instance, Beyonc茅鈥檚 first appearance and performance post-pregnancy announcement, which we鈥檙e fully prepped to lose our minds over 鈥 and now we have another one. The folks behind the scenes have just announced that this year鈥檚 鈥渢rophy girls鈥 (yep, that鈥檚 what they鈥檙e actually called) will include a man and two women, one of whom happens to be transgender.

鈥淭o be honest, the idea of a 鈥榯rophy girl鈥 has felt antiquated for some time now,鈥 Neil Portnow, President of the Recording Academy, said in a statement. 鈥淲ho wrote that rule anyway? The ability to present a trophy has nothing to do with one鈥檚 gender.鈥 On top of that, he pointed out that 鈥渕usic鈥檚 universal power lies in its spirit of inclusion.鈥 Well said.

That鈥檚 why this year, the winners will be handed their awards by either actress Hollin Haley, model and actor Derek Marrocco or model Martina Robledo, who happens to be transgender.

鈥淚 know it鈥檚 going to make some people uncomfortable and make others weep for joy,鈥 Martina said, adding, 鈥淚鈥檓 just going to step out there and strut and make sure I deliver my best, because there鈥檚 people out there looking up to me.鈥

Check out Martina, Derek and Hollin in action when James Corden hosts the Grammys live on CBS this Sunday at 8pm.
