K-pop boy band BTS, English singer Ed Sheeran, American singer Olivia Rodrigo, and American R&B Silk Sonic duo are expected to bag some nominations this year. All these global stars are likely to compete with each other for the Record of the Year Award.
Meanwhile, Chicago rapper Polo G is likely to be one of the nominees for the Best New Artist Award. The Grammy screening committee revealed that he is eligible for the nomination slot. Along with him, K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, Italian rock band MÃ¥neskin, and Australian singer The Kid Laroi will probably get nominated in this category.
Grammy Awards 2022 will be held at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles from 8 pm EST on January 31. It will be broadcast live on CBS and streamed on Paramount Plus. During the ceremony, the best talents from the music industry will be honored in various categories, such as Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist.
The 64th annual award ceremony will introduce a lot of changes, especially in the selection process of winners. New rules and guidelines are introduced to make an equitable and transparent judgment, according to the organizers. From this year, two new categories will be introduced to the nomination list. They are Best Global Music Performance and Best MÃºsica Urbana Album.
Another major change introduced this year is regarding the fans voting. Music creators will only be allowed to cast their votes in 10 specific genre fields. Thirdly, the craft category will be consolidated into two fields: the production field and the presentation field. The recording academy also eliminated the review committee in general and genre fields. Lastly, the Best Dance Recording category has been renamed to Best Dance/Electronic Recording.
