The nominations for the 64th Grammy awards will be announced on Tuesday, November 23, the Recording Academy announced on Tuesday.
The revelation will take place two days before Thanksgiving, as they were last year.
The annual event, which recognizes achievements in the music industry, could be significantly different from recent years after the Academy eliminated the “secret” nominating committees of artists, creators, and industry experts that curated the final lists over the past couple of decades.
Now, the final nominees will be chosen by the broader Grammy voting body.
The decision came after last year’s controversial nominations, which saw the Weeknd, who 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.
The 2022 awards will have a 13-month eligibility period, due to industry delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Academy also published a list of pertinent dates for the 2022 Grammys:
Sept. 1, 2020-Sept. 30, 2021
