The eligibility period for the 64th annual   Grammy Awards   is September 1, 2020, through September 30, 2021.

The nominations were announced during a livestream from the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, which featured   Recording Academy   CEO   Harvey Mason Jr.   and Board Of Trustees chair   Tammy Hurt , as well as some special guests.

The Recording Academy   will present the 2022   Grammy Awards   on Monday, January 31 on the   CBS   Television Network and stream live and on demand on Paramount+ from 8:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. PT. Prior to the telecast, the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theater at 12:30 p.m. PT/3:30 p.m. ET and will be streamed live on and   The Recording Academy 's   YouTube   channel.

The 2022 ceremony will be the first since   The Recording Academy   announced that it has made significant changes to its awards process to ensure that the   Grammy Awards   rules and guidelines are transparent and equitable. The show no longer uses anonymous review committees to determine its nominees. Now, all nominees are based solely on thousands of votes from the   Academy 's voting members. They also changed the number of categories in which   Academy   members can vote and added two new awards.

In January 2020, former   Recording Academy   CEO   Deborah Dugan   filed a discrimination charge against the   Recording Academy of Arts & Sciences , alleging she was being retaliated against for reporting misconduct within the   Academy . In the 46-page complaint,   Dugan   further alleged that "the   Grammy   voting process is ripe with corruption," detailing secret committees the group used to "push forward artists with whom it has relationships." She said that as many as 30 artists who were not selected by the 12,000 voting members were added to the possible nomination list.
