With new format, Grammy 2022 nominations to be unveiled on THIS date

International MUSIC - 01 Nov 2021

This year's roster could be significantly different from ones in recent years, as the Academy has eliminated the "secret" nominating committees of artistes, creators and industry experts that curated the final lists over the past couple of decades.

Now, the final nominees ostensibly will be chosen by the broader Grammy voting body. The move and a subsequent overhaul of the Academy's awards team was made after last year's controversial nominations, which inexplicably saw the Weeknd, who'd had one of the most successful albums of the year and, with 'Blinding Lights', one of the most successful singles of the 2000s, receiving no nominations whatsoever.

The 2022 awards will have a 13-month eligibility period, due to industry delays caused by the pandemic.
