For the first time in 27 years, the final Grammy nominations are being decided by only the Grammy voting members without being subject to the review committee. When asked if he was confident of the voting committee’s ability to deliver without supervision, the Grammy CEO said;

I wasn’t nervous. I felt like we’d done a lot of important work on our membership. We’ve done a lot of outreach into different communities that we felt were maybe underrepresented in our voting membership. … So I felt like the timing was right for our membership to be able to directly decide who the nominees were. That’s why we felt good with removing the nominations review committees at the time that we did it.
