The 2023 Grammy Nominations Are Here

The 65th annual ceremony will be held on February 5, 2023.

Originally Published: 

After a year of big returns, comebacks, and releases in music, the nominations for the 2023 Grammy Awards are finally here.

Beyoncé leads the charge with nine nominations that span the dance/electronic, general, and R&B fields. Adele and Harry Styles follow close behind with seven nominations each, Mary J. Blige with six nominations, and Taylor Swift still managed to nab four nominations with Red (Taylor’s Version).

Significant changes have been made to the annual award show since the 2022 ceremony. The Recording Academy introduced five new nomination categories, and a new special merit award honoring the best song for social change. The additional categories will honor a non-classical songwriter of the year; best spoken word poetry album; best alternative music performance; best Americana music performance; and best score soundtrack for video games and other interactive media.

The new songwriter of the year category is especially notable, as it could very well be considered on par with the other “big four” general category awards. It differs from the song of the year distinction as it recognizes one individual who was the “most prolific” non-performing and non-producing songwriter for a body of new work, per the Grammys.

The 65th annual ceremony will be held on Feb. 5, 2023, at the arena in Los Angeles. The host for the ceremony hasn’t yet been announced. Unlike in previous years, the show has dodged any major controversies so far — but being that this is the Grammys, that could change any minute.

Read on for the full list of 2023 Grammy nominations.
