The Recording Academy has just announced some major changes coming to the Grammy Awards in 2022! If you’re a fan of music, you won’t want to miss out on what’s in store. In this blog post, we’ll discuss all the new changes announced. We’ll also provide links to the official Grammy website to get more information about the awards to show yourself. Check it out and start planning your Grammy viewing party now!
So, what’s new for the 2022 Grammy Awards? First and foremost, the show will now be held on Sunday, January 30th. The previous years Grammys were typically held in February. The Recording Academy has stated that this shift will allow for a “more inclusive eligibility period.” What does that mean exactly? It means that any music released between October 2020 and September 2021 will be eligible for consideration at the 2022 awards show. That’s a full two months longer than the usual eligibility period!
In addition to the date change, there are also some changes to how the award categories will be determined. In past years, an album of the year was reserved for artists who released a full-length album. However, starting in 2022, the award will be open to any album release, including EPs and singles. This is a big deal because more artists will now be eligible for the top prize.
There are also some changes coming to the voting process. In the past, Grammy voters were required to submit their ballots by a certain date to be considered. However, starting in 2022, voters will have until December 31st to submit their ballots. This is a major change because it gives voters more time to listen to all eligible music and make their decisions.
There are also some changes coming to the voting process. Starting next year, all Recording Academy members will be able to vote on every award category, regardless of their specific area of expertise. This should make for a more well-rounded and representative voting body.
So, there you have it! These are just some of the changes that have been announced for the upcoming Grammy Awards show. Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the event date. And don’t forget to start planning your viewing party now! Who knows, maybe you’ll be the one taking home a Grammy in 2022.
