Interesting?! Effective IMMEDIATELY, Online Voting For The 60th Annual Grammy Awards!

We presume that Kanye, Justin Timberlake, and Drake actually made an impact on executives of the Recording Academy because they’ve amended a few rules and regulations for 2018.

Effective IMMEDIATELY, there will be changes to the following:

  • GRAMMY Awards Voting Will Now Be Online
  • Songwriters Now Recognized In Album Of The Year
  • Nominations Review Committees Established For Rap, Contemporary Instrumental, And New Age Fields
  • Album Definition Expanded To Allow For More Inclusion In Classical, Dance, And Jazz Fields
  • Amendments To The Music Visual Media Field

Via Bill Freimuth [Senior Vice President of Awards for the Recording Academy]:

“As an Academy, it’s imperative that we continue to meet the needs of music creators everywhere, and this year’s transition to online voting is an enormous step forward in the evolution of our voting process. We work diligently to ensure we’re keeping up with our ever-changing industry and team up with music people year round, across all genres and disciplines, to make sure we are doing everything we can to support the creative community.”

For the FIRST time ever, voting members will cast their votes online for the award show versus the normal “paper” ballots. According to executives, this process will:

  • Provide greater flexibility for touring artist
  • Eliminate the possibility of invalid ballots
  • Protect against fraudulent voting
