The Recording Academy opted for an unconventional process of announcing this year’s Grammy noms. Four categories as well as Record of the Year were revealed on “CBS This Morning,” and a handful of others are being announced via Twitter through 11 a.m. PT, when the Acad will release a list of 82 out of 83 categories. Finally, Album of the Year nominees will be revealed shortly before 7 p.m. PT as part of CBS’ primetime “A Very Grammy Christmas” special.
The Grammy Awards ceremony will air live on CBS on Feb. 8.
