Olivia Rodrigo, John Legend, Machine Gun Kelly, Jimmie Allen, Smokey Robinson, Luis Fonsi and CBS Mornings anchors Gayle King and Nate Burleson will join Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. for announcing the 2023 Grammy nominations. To be eligible for nominations, new recordings must be released from October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022. Per the Recording Academy’ guidelines, these recordings must be “commercially released, nationally distributed and available from within the eligibility period” to qualify. Submissions opened this summer, with the first round of voting taking place from October 13 and ending October 23; a final round of voting to determine winners is scheduled to commence on December 14.
Though last year’s big winner Silk Sonic will likely not receive any nods after “gracefully, humbly and most importantly, sexually” withdrawing their debut album from consideration, music fans can still expect some stiff competition at the ceremony given powerhouse artists like Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles and Adele all released new music during the eligibility period.
This year’s awards will also include five new categories, including Songwriter Of The Year (Non-Classical), Best Alternative Music Performance and Best Americana Performance. There’ll also be a special merit award for Best Song For Social Change.
The 65th annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 5, 2023 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles at 8 pm ET on CBS and Paramounnt+. The host has not yet been announced; Trevor Noah hosted the show for the past two years.
