Can anyone explain what the committee does? Other than review the preferred nominations, is there anything else?

Nail’s been hit on the fucking head. There’s always an army of people ready to bitch about the Grammys. Always.
slow clap! And this is only on Clownderby. This year’s winners received no backlash or hate, it was all concentrated on this damn forum.
They changed because the backlash was widespread and deafening. They obviously want more than you queens on here and Twitter watching because they end up with disastrous ratings otherwise as seen with the recent ratings. They tried to pander to you queens this year with their nominations, and no one watched the show. Their reputation has already been ruined, but that is their best attempt if they want to be popular againMay 1, 2021 at 5:10 pm #1204238567
Future Nostalgia Folklore Hollywood’s Bleeding Chilombo Black Pumas Women in Music All excellent albums. Just shut up. Y’all complain about the list of nominees every year.
Get real! Folklore, Hollywood’s Bleeding, Women in Music Pt. III, and Everyday Life are NOT excellent albums. PUKE!May 1, 2021 at 5:43 pm #1204238588

It would be interesting to see how campaigning works from here on.May 1, 2021 at 6:37 pm #1204238662
Honey, the 2022 Grammy nominations are going to be worse than 2021. YUCK!May 1, 2021 at 9:34 pm #1204238757
I think they did this because only popular artists will be nominated and popular = ratings in their opinion.May 1, 2021 at 10:12 pm #1204238780
Hi all. My first post on the music forum after reading it for a while.
My thoughts on the recent Grammy changes; What one feels about the committee depends on whether you think it did more good than bad. I personally thought it did just well. There were a couple of strange choices here and there but overall it helped (commercially) low-key artists and gain more prominence on an international platform. This year, I found two of my favourite projects, HAIM’s album and H.E.R’s I can’t breathe because of the grammys. I probably wouldn’t have checked them out myself. This has happened over the years, so many people find so much good music and mv’s because of the grammys. I hate to think about the grammys becoming a popularity contest. The BRP has also kept out some questionable pop nominees out of the general field (changes and chromatica this year) which I was glad for.
Anyway, I agree with user @Ghost’s suggestions some pages ago. Five straight vote noms and three committees picks. Great suggestion. Feasible and balanced. I’d also be lying if I said I wasn’t super excited about this year though. It’s interesting to see how a straight vote will play out. I really hope it’s not the same five mediocre commercial pop albums in AOTY but I’m hoping to get surprised.May 1, 2021 at 10:15 pm #1204238784
I’m not super educated on the Weeknd situation but I’m assuming he wanted the secret committees to be done and dusted? Good for him, he got what he wanted. He should submit now. The public too would love to see where he stands on a straight vote now 🙂May 1, 2021 at 10:50 pm #1204238804
The Weeknd is in for a rude awakening. Blinding Lights missed Pop Solo Performance on a straight vote, so I’m not sure why he’s pushing the whole “secret committees blocked me” thing.

This makes perfect sense for the Grammys for two reasons. This will almost certainly favour big name artists over smaller artists and/or foreign artists, unless those foreign artists are very well known.
The public want to see well known artists, so it’s good for ratings.
The second advantage is that whatever happens, they can simply say it’s the choice of NARAS voters. If artists don’t like the results, it’s their “peers” that didn’t vote for them.
Better ratings and they don’t have to respond to artists complaints.
