This year’s announcement will be made on a Livestream beginning at noon Eastern, 9 a.m. Pacific at Among those announcing the nominees this year will be Olivia Rodrigo, John Legend, Machine Gun Kelly and Smokey Robinson.

Possible nominees include Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Harry Styles and Adele. Some other hopefuls include Lizzo and Steve Lacy, who both had two of the biggest songs this year.

The Grammy Awards will be handed out Feb. 5 in Los Angeles.

The new category for songwriters is a huge step forward. Last year, a rule update allowed any songwriter, producer, engineer or featured artist on an album nominated for album of the year could ultimately earn a nomination.
