CBS This Morning to kick off 58th Grammy Nominations announcement
The Recording Academy announced Wednesday morning specifics on how nominees will be announced for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
On Dec. 7, the nominees in the general field categories (record of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best new artist) will be announced live on CBS This Morning at 8:15, with the nominees in 79 categories to be announced through a press release at 8:30 and on Grammy.com.
This year's announcement will be far quicker than last year's, where it was an all day affair starting in the morning, with sporadic announcements made through the afternoon. The album of the year nominations were announced live that night, with a complete list of nominees announced soon after.
Over 21,000 submissions were received for the annual kudos fest honoring the best in music for the calendar year running from Oct. 1, 2014 to Sept. 31, 2015.
The 58th Annual Grammy Awards airs live on CBS on Feb. 15, 2016.
