Nominees were announced by the Recording Academy in November in 94 categories, including three newcomers: Best African Music Performance, Best Alternative Jazz Album and Best Pop Dance Recording. Most will be handed out at the opening ceremony. The „big four” categories — song, record and album of the year and best new artist — will be broadcast in prime time, but their total number of nominees has been reduced from 10 to eight.

The Grammys will be broadcast live on CBS and streamed on Paramount+ with Showtime (8 EST/5 PST).
Who hosts the Grammys?
