Here are all the last-minute changes that were made to the GRAMMY 2022 nominations...
The GRAMMYs are just around the corner, with the 2022 nominations being made public on November 24.
However, there was a change to the format of this year’s nominated artists, as the pool of musicians in the running for certain awards have been raised from eight to ten.
This had everyone asking the same question: Who were the last minute-additions?
The New York Times reports that the alterations were made in a meeting just one day before the announcement, giving artists from Taylor Swift to Kanye West chance at a GRAMMY win in the eleventh hour...
The change was made to the ‘the big four’ – the most coveted awarding categories consist of; Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Best New Artist and Best Album.
Now, 10 artists have the possibility of nabbing a win in the prestigious categories.
The adjustment saw the only award Swift is up for this year, which she celebrated by sharing a behind-the-scenes video singing ‘Champagne Problems’ from the record.
Song Of The Year welcomed in 'Kiss Me More' by Doja Cat and 'Right on Time' by Carlile, whereas Best New Artist brought in rapper Baby Keem and the Pakistani American vocalist and composer Arooj Aftab.
