Pause that pre-Thanksgiving panic: The Grammy nominations for 2022 will be revealed Tuesday.

Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo are all expected to be nominees, as are Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett. To be eligible for a nomination, a recording had to be released between Sept. 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2021.

If it seems like the 2021 Grammys were just five minutes ago, that’s because this past year, the Recording Academy’s awards were pandemic-pushed to March, rather than happening as usual in January or early February.

Amid reforms in the Grammy nomination process, Olivia Rodrigo and Lil Nas X are considered early favorites. But a (very) old-school album could steal the show.

The coming year will once again see the show smack in the middle of awards season.

The 64th Grammy Awards are scheduled for Jan. 31 in Los Angeles at what will soon be the arena formerly known as Staples Center. But first come the nominations — and here’s how you can watch them.

When are the Grammy nominations?

The nominations stream live starting at 9 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday. Recording Academy Chief Executive Harvey Mason Jr. and Tammy Hurt, chair of the academy’s board of trustees, will do the honors. Other talent might be added.

‘It’s a long road to get to a transformative change like this,’ Recording Academy Chief Executive Harvey Mason Jr. told The Times.
