    There aren’t enough contenders due to COVID.

    What about Tina! The Tina Turner Musical. Features killer vocals by Adrienne Warren. The album came out last September, so I don’t think it was submitted last year, but I could be wrong.

    Beetlejuice which was nominated at the Tonys for Best Musical is eligible.

    Also, SIX: The Musical … this was a hit in the UK and was about to open in the U.S. This album came out in January.

    & Juliet is a West End production featuring covers of popular songs by producer/writer Max Martin including by The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Ariana Grande.

    I don’t think this category will be canceled, but it might lower the count to just 3 nominees this year.

    There category will likely still happen as there is enough potential nominees but will probably be downgraded to 3 three nominees instead of the usual five.

    Beetlejuice which was nominated at the Tonys for Best Musical is eligible.

    The Cast Recording was released June 7 2019, I don’t believe it’s eligible

    Also, SIX: The Musical … this was a hit in the UK and was about to open in the U.S. This album came out in January.

    Is there a US cast album out, the British one was released in 2018 so I doubt it’s eligible?

    & Juliet is a West End production featuring covers of popular songs by producer/writer Max Martin including by The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Ariana Grande.

    Forgot about this, Max is generally well-liked by the academy as a whole I can see a nomination here happening (remember when Beautiful: The Carole King Musical beat the favourite Hedwig & The Angry Inch)
