Once again, the Grammy ceremony will be held during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, but for the 2022 Awards show, things will certainly look more normal than they did earlier this year thanks to a variety of vaccines and loosening of restrictions. The Grammys have also nominated more musicians and artists than ever thanks to the expansion of certain categories, and new eligibility requirements for select awards.
