The nominees for the 64th Grammy Awards have been announced and Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga have racked up a number of nominations. Some changes have been made this year to the nomination process after criticism last year. Pop singer The Weeknd called the Grammys “corrupt” when he was not nominated even though he had the year’s most popular song.
This year, the Grammys allowed over 11,000 voters to choose nominees instead of an anonymous selection committee. The CEO, Harvey Mason Jr. hopes to open up the Grammys membership and rebuild trust in the long-running awards show.
