The Grammy nominations for 2022 are being announced live on Tuesday morning by the Recording Academy for what will be the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.

Last year, Beyoncé made history as the most winningest female artist in Grammy history, picking up her 28th trophy and tying Quincy Jones with the most wins for a non-classical artist. The top prizes also went to Billie Eilish for Record of the Year “Everything I Wanted,” Album of the Year to Taylor Swift for “Folkore,” Song of the Year in for H.E.R. on “I Can’t Breathe” and Megan Thee Stallion for Best New Artist.

There was also a big shift this year, with the Grammys moving from eight to 10 nominees in the major categories, or the “Big Four” this year in the general field categories.

This year however was also one of major changes in the Recording Academy and to the voting process, with the Academy tweaking rules for eligibility, for voting in categories and most importantly, eliminating the controversial secret nominating committees that have dictated the final field of nominees. Many members also had to re-qualify for membership this year as the Academy pushed for more diversity, and this year’s Grammys ceremony will even feature an inclusion rider for people working behind the scenes on the show.

The Grammys will air on January 31, 2022 on CBS, as well as streamed on-demand on Paramount+.
