The Recording Academy has unleashed the nominees for the 64th annual ceremony.

The upcoming ceremony marks the first year that the selections have been chosen after big changes to the nomination process. Earlier this year, it was announced that anonymous selection committees have been ditched in favor of more than 11,000 votes to choose nominees in select categories, with full membership allowing voters to weigh in on categories like Album of the Year and Song of the Year.

The 2022 Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on January 31 live on CBS.
