Grammy Awards 2023 nominations are out, and Beyonce is leading the race with 9 nods

The Grammy nominees for this season are finally here, with the Queen B leading the nominations race with 9 nods for her latest album Renaissance; and Kendrick Lamar, Adele and Brandi Carlile following close behind with 8 nods each.

What's changed: Following the award ceremony’s boycott by leading artists like Drake and The Weeknd, the Recording Academy changed its nomination procedure. Earlier, a group of music industry peers were in charge of ‘representing their genre communities’. Now, the final pool of nominees for nearly all Grammy awards will be decided by a majority vote of Academy voting members.

The 'Big Four' categories - Album, Song, and Record of the Year, and Best New Artist - as well as genre-specific categories will eliminate committees, but the craft-specific categories will continue to be decided by a select group of industry professionals. 

  • The Recording Academy has also committed to expanding its voter pool to further the cause of representation from historically underrepresented communities.

What's new: This year, the Academy has added five new categories to the competition. These new categories being recognized at the 65th Grammys include:

  1. Songwriter of the Year (Non-Classical),
  2. Best Alternative Music Performance,
  3. Best Americana Performance,
  4. Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media, and
  5. Best Spoken Word Poetry Album.

Here are the nominees for the Big Four categories:
