The major categories will include eight nominees instead of five, and the show will add two new awards: the Best Global Music Performance and Best Música Urbana Album (Latin Music Field).

Nominees for all the awards were chosen from nearly 22,000 eligible entries for music released between September 2020 and 2021.

This year’s nominations come following the introduction of a new voting system, which allows the academy’s more than 11,000 members to vote for up to 10 categories in three genres; all voters can vote for the top four awards.

It replaces the anonymous nominations review committee – a group that determined the contenders for key awards.

Some had claimed committee members favoured projects based on personal relationships and promoted projects they favoured and worked on.
