The organization behind the Grammy’s has changed the rules for a nomination. Reason was lack of understanding in the absence of Lady Gaga “best new artist”. The eccentric singer was obviously the best newcomer last year, but received the award not because she was nominated in 2008.
Lady Gaga’s debut single “Just Dance” in 2008, was nominated in the category of best dance song, but did not win. Thanks to hits like “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance” and her debut album “The Fame” Gaga last year broke through internationally. Yet she did not qualify for the Grammy for best new artist since her debut single was nominated a year earlier. The situation has led to much misunderstanding in the music.
“Increasingly, the first single from an artist, a collaboration with another musician or an album follows much later after a debut single”, noted the organization behind the Grammy’s. “Under the current rules are that artists not eligible for a nomination in the category of best newcomer”.
The Recording Academy deleted the rule part. From the ceremony in February are also artists who had previously been nominated in a single account for a Grammy nomination. Condition is that the artist has no Grammy on the mantel has listed and still no album.
“With this change, each artist at least a chance to be nominated in this important category”. The Recording Academy also used the nomination rules for the category classical producer of the year. Moreover, artists that occur during the Grammy’s now no chance on the music award. This should be the integrity and independence of the Grammy’s meeting.
