2022 Grammy Nominations Announced

.... and there are a LOT of them. The Grammy eliminated their "Blue Ribbon" panel this year and expanded the number of nominees in the major categories to 10!

Grammy Nominations 2022: See the Full List Here

Find out who’s up for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and more

The full list of nominations for the 64th Grammy Awards have been revealed: Jon Batiste, Justin Bieber, H.E.R., Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, and Doja Cat. Also nominated are Fleet Foxes, Arooj Aftab, Low, Japanese Breakfast, Caroline Shaw, and plenty of others. Find the full list of nominees below. The 2022 Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Monday, January 31 and will broadcast live on CBS.



A number of changes have come to pass at the Recording Academy and its handling of the Grammys since the 2021 ceremony. In April, the institution announced an end to its practice of secret-committee nominations in its Big Four categories and established two new awards for Música Urbana Album and Global Music Performance. Over the summer, the Recording Academy updated its book of rules and guidelines to ban sales figures and chart numbers from being mentioned in “For Your Consideration” ads, too. The ceremony is also being produced with an inclusion rider for the first time after expanding its voting pool to include more voters from “traditionally underrepresented groups.”



It’s the first year of the Grammys with new Recording Academy President and CEO Harvey Mason jr., now officially in the position after serving in the role on an interim basis. He stepped into the position following the ousting of former Grammy chief Deborah Dugan, who was placed on administrative leave just days before the 2020 Grammy Awards. Following a legal dispute, the Recording Academy and Dugan announced a settlement this summer.

Last year, Beyoncé set a new record for most Grammys held by a female artist with her Best R&B Performance win for “Black Parade.” After the 2021 nominees were announced, the Weeknd announced his intentions to boycott the Grammys going forward when After Hours and “Blinding Lights” received zero nominations. Still, he got recognized three times this year.



Ahead of today’s announcement, Taylor Swift revealed that she would not submit Fearless (Taylor’s Version) for consideration, instead focusing on a campaign for Evermore. Cardi B’s and Megan Thee Stallion’s 2020 single “WAP” was previously withheld from 2021 Grammy consideration; plans called for it to be submitted for the 2022 Grammys with a Cardi B album that never materialized. And, in additional nomination news, Kacey Musgraves’ Star-Crossed was ruled ineligible for nomination in country categories; the record’s “Camera Roll,” however, is nominated in two country categories.

It's nice to see Gojira and Mastodon get a nod in the metal category, but that's it for me. Don't follow or listen to any of the other artists.

Re: 2022 Grammy Nominations Announced

I would say that I know and have definitely head the Silk Stockings (Bruno Mars) and Olivia Rodrigo songs, though I know I have listened to the Billie Eilish and ABBA songs as well at least once.

Re: 2022 Grammy Nominations Announced

When did the Grammy's allow more than 5 nominees in the main categories? It's been a while since I've followed.

ABBA for record of the year!!!

‘I still have faith’ in the Grammy academy. Give props where pop prop and legacy is due. Plus, the song is blinking fantastic

I suspect Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will do well, considering Tony is suffering with dementia and this is likely his hurrah.
