    Basically what you have, but there may be an oddball or two in that mix.

    Think “Beg, Steal or Borrow,” “Really Love,” “Holocene.”

    nice idea! but shouldn’t there be 15?
    https://www.thecurrent.org/feature/2014/01/24/how-the-grammys-work

    i don’t remeber where i read it, but if i remember correctly some Grammy voter that worked in such committee said that they can also add their choice(s) below official top 15 to the committee’s work…

    If Sara Bareilles can make top 20 in Album, Kesha definitely can. And she obviously will be on top 20 for Song and Record.

    This article updated in 2016 suggests that it is the top 20.

    https://www.vox.com/2015/2/4/7976729/grammy-voting-process

    The goal in each category is to take the 20 nominations that the members send forth and get the list down to a consensus of the seven or eight that we feel are the [best]. When we get that consensus, we stop. Each member of the committee then fills out a ballot, which isn’t tabulated that day. So when we leave the room, no one — including Mike Greene — knows the results. The only ones who know are the accountants when they tabulate it later.
