The Grammys are an awards ceremony held annually since 1959 by the Recording Academy, an organization of music experts including singers, producers, recording engineers, and critics. Winners are selected through members’ votes, with a focus on musicality and workmanship rather than commercial achievements such as chart performance or album sales.
The Grammy Awards will be held on February 4, 2024, at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
