Taylor Swift, Kanye West, among last-minute additions for top Grammy Awards nominations

According to The New York Times, The Recording Academy — the body behind the Grammy Awards — chose to increase the number of allotments in some categories at the last minute, soon before the nominees were released.

According to the New York Times, Recording Academy members decided a day before the Grammy nominations were released on Tuesday that the top categories at the annual awards presentation should be expanded to ten candidates instead of eight.

According to the newspaper, artists including Taylor Swift and Kanye West, as well as Lil Nas X and ABBA, benefited from the change.

The New York Times states that it was possible to ascertain which musicians were added as last-minute additions because they were not listed on a “final nominations list” of eight names obtained by the publication three days before nominations were announced.

PEOPLE reached out to the Recording Academy for comment, but they did not respond right away.

Swift, 31, and West, 44, were late additions to the album of the year category for their respective efforts, Evermore and Donda, according to the Times. Doja Cat, H.E.R., Billie Eilish, Jon Batiste, and Lil Nas X were among the late arrivals, along with Justin Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo, Tony Bennett, and Lady Gaga, as well as Doja Cat, H.E.R., Billie Eilish, Jon Batiste, and Lil Nas X.

Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and ABBA’s “I Still Have Faith in You” were added to the list of record of the year nominees, which previously featured songs by Rodrigo, 18, Bieber, 27, Bennett, 95, and Gaga, 35, Batiste, 35, Doja Cat, 26, Eilish, 19, Silk Sonic, and Brandi Carlile.

According to the New York Times, last-minute additions to the song of the year category included Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” and Brandi Carlile’s “Right on Time.” They join Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys, and Carlile, as well as Rodrigo, H.E.R., 24, Eilish, Silk Sonic, Lil Nas X, and Justin Bieber, as nominees.

According to the article, the rapper Baby Keem and composer Arooj Aftab were included to the late expansion of best new artist. Rodrigo, Jimmie Allen, FINNEAS, Glass Animals, Japanese Breakfast, The Kid Laroi, Arlo Parks, and Saweetie are now among the nominees.

Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. praised the choice to include 10 candidates as a method “to make place for more music, more artists, and more genres, and to embrace the spirit of inclusivity” during a live broadcast announcing the Grammy nominations.

“We viewed it as a fantastic chance for us to celebrate more artists and cast a light on more great music, and maybe create a wider opportunity for various kinds of music to be acknowledged,” Mason, 53, told Variety.

Mason noted that the decision to accept more nominations, which appeared to be made fast, was something that had been planned all along.

“It’s something we’ve spoken about for a long time, but it only happened recently,” he explained. “We saw the vote and the number of submissions [for the Grammys in 2022] and viewed it as a fantastic possibility.”

On January 31, the 64th Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Kim Kardashian responds to Kanye West's reunion attempt with meaningful gesture

Kim Kardashian appears to have turned down Kanye West’s veiled offer of reunion, taunting him with another romantic rendezvous with her new boyfriend Pete Davidson.

Days after her rapper ex’s heartfelt desire of rekindling their love, the 41-year-old reality actress and her boyfriend were seen walking hand-in-hand in Santa Monica.

During her outing, Kardashian was all smiles, with the comedian presumably replying to Kanye, who is yearning to reunite with his children’s mother.

Kim looked stunning in an open leather skirt over leggings, elbow-length leather gloves, sunglasses, a baseball cap, and a turtleneck, and she carried a little silver bag.

Her dazzling appearance, which was her version of a casual date night attire, gave greater importance to her potential future partner.

Davidson, on the other hand, looked handsome with a t-shirt, bomber jacket, trousers, and a baseball cap that read “Uncle Paulio’s.” He had black paint on his nails.

The couple dined in a separate area before boarding Davidson’s Lamborghini SUV, which he held open for her. They were pictured laughing, and one photograph led to speculation that Davidson had a hickey on his neck.

Kardashian and Davidson have been dating since October and are having a great time together. According to rumors, Pete goes out of his way to make Kim feel special. Kanye, on the other hand, appears to be envious of his estranged wife’s romantic outing with a new partner.

It comes after Kim revealed that her shapewear collection is coming into China and will be available at Lane Crawford stores in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

“Hey everyone, I am really pleased to announce that SKIMS is officially opening in China,” she said while sporting one of the collection’s outfits.

“We’ll be at Lane Crawford (a luxury department store) in Shanghai and Hong Kong.”

Kanye West shares throwback image kissing estranged wife Kim Kardashian, despite her romance with Pete Davidson

Ye is going all out to mend fences with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, and if that involves weaponizing their pictorial memories, so be it!!!

The man formerly known as Kanye West is having second thoughts about an old photo of himself and the missus kissing, which he shared on his Instagram account on Friday morning, along with a TMZ report about Kanye saying God will save his marriage.

As previously reported, Ye stopped by the L.A. Mission earlier this week and grabbed a microphone to let everyone know that he was trusting God to help him and Kim repair their relationship.

He went on to say that his reconciliation with Kim will serve as an example to millions of other families who were going through divorce or separation.

What about the black-and-white shot? It all started in September of this year, when Kimye and her kids went on a family vacation to the Bahamas. Kim had posted it at the time, but it was inexplicably erased shortly later. It’s clear that Ye didn’t forget about it.

Of course, Mr. West’s yearning for his wife coincides with her growing comfort level with Pete Davidson in public. They were seen out and about in Santa Monica earlier this week… with Pete sporting a hickey on his neck.

Kanye has been linked to Irina Shayk and Vinetria, a 22-year-old model, since Kim filed for divorce in February, but he appears to be focused on repairing the marriage right now.
