Grammys 2019 Nominations Announcement Postponed

The 2019 Grammy nominations announcement has been postponed from Wednesday (December 5) to Friday (December 7) out of respect for the memorial services for former President George H.W. Bush.

Variety reports that some categories will be announced on Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET on CBS This Morning. At 8:45 a.m. ET on Friday, the full list of nominees will be available on the Grammys official website.

The former President passed away last week at the age of 94. Friends and loved ones will gather on Wednesday (December 5) for the funeral service at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.

Grammys Announce There Will Be Eight Nominees in Top Four Categories!

There’s a big change coming to the Grammys starting with next year’s ceremony!

The “General Field” categories – which include Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist – will now have eight nominees instead of the standard five.

“This change will better reflect the large number of entries in these categories and allow voters greater flexibility when selecting this year’s best recordings,” the Recording Academy announced to its members on Tuesday (June 26).

The change comes after the Grammys were criticized for only a few female nominees in the top categories this year.

Lorde Writes Open Letter About Grammys in a Newspaper Ad

Lorde is speaking out about her experience at the 2018 Grammys in an open letter to fans, which was published as a full-page ad in the New Zealand Herald.

The 21-year-old singer was nominated for Album of the Year, but was not invited to give a solo performance during the show. She seemingly shaded the event the next day in a tweet promoting her tour.

“Oh, hi there! I’m writing this from New York City. [My brother] Angelo and I sat in Madison Square Garden last night and saw a lot of crazy and wonderful things,” Lorde wrote in the note. “I just wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for loving and embracing Melodrama the way you did. My nomination belongs to you. Thank you, also, for believing in female musicians. You set a beautiful precedent! All my love, Lorde.”

At the top of the letter, Lorde wrote tiny notes like: “Met Stevie Nicks and almost cried;” “Jay-Z‘s hands are really soft;” “Melo 4ever;” and SZA with a crown over her name.
