This year’s Grammy Awards were held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, due to the fast-spreading omicron variant, marking it the first time the telecast was held anywhere but L.A. or New York since 1973, when it was held in Nashville. The new location drew mixed reviews and complaints of chaotic crowds and transportation difficulties.
In June, the Recording Academy announced several new awards and rule changes, including songwriter of the year (non-classical), best score soundtrack for video games and other interactive media, and a special merit award for best song for social change. Elsewhere, the Grammys entry and voting processes were updated to include a rule that ups the minimum new content for album eligibility from 50% to 75%.
Details regarding next year’s Grammy Week events will be announced in the coming months. For the complete rules and guidelines for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, visit here.
