The 2022 Grammy nominations have been released, with huge accolades potentially going to acts from around the globe.

Almost 22,000 songs and albums were submitted for consideration, with Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason saying, “we’re living in a time of extraordinary growth in music”.

However, the announcement has not been free of controversy, with Rolling Stone reporting that controversial figures, like Marlyn Manson and Louis C.K, could take home trophies.

In addition, Taylor Swift also withheld her re-recorded version of Fearless from consideration, and The Weeknd is refusing to participate in the Grammys after being snubbed last year.

While there aren’t many British artists in the running this year, some of the acts that have been nominated include Ed Sheeran, Arlo Parks and the Oxford-based band Glass Animals.
