’20 Nine-Five’ disqualified from Grammys

The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences has disqualified a song nominated for a Grammy in this year’s pop instrumental category.

“Twenty Nine-Five” by Bruce Hornsby and Branford Marsalis is not eligible because it was not commercially released. The song was used as background music during the Summer Olympics, according to a publishing report.

The 35th annual Grammys will be held Feb. 24 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
