The organizers of the Grammys on Friday announced that they were scrapping the “secret” committees that select which acts get nominated for the prestigious music awards following criticism from artists after the last nominations were released.

The Recording Academy said nominations for the 2022 awards would be decided by its entire voting membership of more than 11,000, rather than the anonymous 15-30 member expert committees who had previously made the selections. The Academy said the significant changes to the awards process reflect its ongoing commitment to evolve with the musical landscape and to ensure that the Awards rules and guidelines are transparent and equitable.

In its statement, the organization said it was also reducing the number of categories in which voters can vote and added two new award categories, in Latin and global music, to bring the total to 86.
