2022 Grammy Award Nominations: See The List & Major Changes

Big changes are coming to the 64th annual Grammy Awards.

The nominations were announced on Tuesday during a livestream with Recording Academy CEO, Harvey Mason Jr. and Board of Trustees Chair, Tammy Hurt, reading off the nominees. Other special guests including H.E.R, Carly Pearce and Finneas helped the pair reveal the honorees.

But, the music of the year wasn’t the only thing being celebrated.

In April, the Grammy’s took a step to update the process of the awards by eliminating nomination review committees. This is the first time in 30 years that the nominations will be decided solely by the voting membership.

Due to the change, the Recording Academy made the decision to expand the number of nominees from 8 to 10 in its general field categories, including song of the year, record of the year, album of the year and best new artist.

“We are living in a time of extraordinary growth in music. Over 60,000 songs a day are being released. With so much more music available there’s a lot more excellence to recognize and celebrate,” Harvey Mason Jr., Recording Academy CEO said.

“Adding new nominees to these fields is a way to cast a wider net to make way for more music, more artists and more genres and to embrace the spirit of inclusion,” he continued.

The organization said it had nearly 22,000 submissions for Grammy consideration this year, and had a record number of voters, up 17% from last year.

The Grammy’s will air live on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2022.
