Grammys Scrap ‘Secret’ Nomination Committees after Criticism

The organizers of the Grammys said on Friday they were scrapping the “secret” committees that choose which acts get appointed for the distinguished music awards following criticism from artists and allegations of rigging.

The Recording Academy’s same nominations for the 2022 awards would be set by its entire option membership of over 11,000, instead of the anonymous 15-30 member professional committees WHO had antecedently created the picks.

The Academy said the “significant changes” to the awards method “reflect its current commitment to evolve with the musical landscape and to make sure that the Grammy Awards rules and tips square measure clear and evenhanded.”

In its statement, the organization said it had been conjointly reducing the number of classes during which voters will vote and additional 2 new award classes, in Latin and world music, to bring the full to eighty-six.

The changes come back when R&B star The Weeknd in Gregorian calendar month defendant the Grammy organizers of being corrupt when he astonishingly received no nominations, despite a giant year commercially.

“The Grammys stay corrupt. You owe me, my fans and therefore the trade transparency…,” the Canadian, illustrious for hits like “Blinding Lights” and “Starboy,” tweeted at the time and pledged to prevent submitting music for awards thought.

Harvey Mason son, chairman and interim president of the Academy, same it had “been a year of unprecedented , transformational modification for the Recording Academy.”

“This may be a new Academy, one that’s driven to action which has doubled down on the commitment to meeting the requirements of the music community.”

Last year the Academy’s 1st feminine business executive, Deborah Dugan was discharged over alleged bullying.

In a legal grievance, Dugan same she was ousted when raising issues starting from option irregularities to molestation and alleged rape.

Former One Direction singer Zayn leader criticized the anonymous nomination committees in March.

“I’m keeping the pressure on & fighting for transparency & inclusion. we’d like to form certain we tend to square measure observance and celebrating ‘creative excellence’ of ALL. finish the key committees,” tweeted the singer, WHO has ne’er been appointed either along with his former cluster or as a solo creator.
