The Unpredictable Awards Show
There are four general category fields – Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Debut Artist of the Year. But who makes it? No one can be sure, as the Grammy’s can be a roller coaster ride. The Grammy Awards is a high-profile award that is hosted by the recording industry’s big honchos.
Moreover, the format has undergone a number of changes. Like, there were some changes regarding the secret nominee review committees, which were eventually removed. Now, academy members can vote for their favorite candidates without any middleman in between.
Additionally, last year the general category awards nominations were increased from 8-10 slots. Thus, opening the path for many singers, musicians, and albums to be included. All the viewers and fans were surprised by the eventual selection of artists for the final game.
Arooj Aftab happened to be one of the surprise awardees in the Best new Artists categories. But that was not the only surprise. In the same manner, there may be multiple surprises this year as well.
