Thirteen past Grammy winners, ranging from Amy Grant to Kim Petras, will help announce the 66th annual Grammy Award nominees in a livestream event on Nov. 10. The announcement will be accessible on live.Grammy.com and YouTube.
Other Grammy winners onboard for the event include: Arooj Aftab, Vince Gill, Jimmy Jam, Jon Bon Jovi, Samara Joy, Muni Long, Cheryl Pawelski, Judith Sherman, St. Vincent, Jeff Tweedy and “Weird Al” Yankovic. They will be joined by CBS Mornings co-hosts Gayle King, Nate Burleson and Tony Dokoupil and Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason jr.
Gill has amassed 22 Grammys, more than any other male country artist. Other presenters on Friday’s livestream who have won four or more Grammys are Sherman (14), Grant (six), Jam (five), Yankovic (five) and Tweedy (four).
Jam was chair of the Recording Academy’s board of trustees from 2007-09. Joy was the surprise winner for best new artist last year. Jon Bon Jovi will be the 2024 MusiCares Person of the Year honoree on Feb. 2, 2024, two nights before the Grammy Awards.
The nominations event will kick off with a special presentation announcing the nominees in the general field and select other categories. There will be two changes in general field categories this year. There will be just eight nominations, down from 10 the last two years, for album, record and song of the year, plus best new artist, which have always comprised the general field. Also, two additional categories are being bumped up to the general field for the first time: producer of the year, non-classical and songwriter of the year, non-classical.
Video announcements of the nominees in the remaining categories will also be published on live.Grammy.com and YouTube while the event is underway. The full list of nominees will be published on Grammy.com immediately following the presentation.
