Last month The Recording Academy announced the addition of new Grammy Awards for the 2023 ceremony. Among the new categories are Songwriter Of The Year (Non-Classical), Best Alternative Music Performance, Best Score Soundtrack For Video Games and Other Interactive Media and a Special Merit Award for Best Song For Social Change.

Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said in a statement: “The Academy’s top priority is to effectively represent the music people that we serve, and each year, that entails listening to our members and ensuring our rules and guidelines reflect our ever-evolving industry.”

The 2022 Grammy Awards this past April saw Jon Bastiste, Silk Sonic and Olivia Rodrigo become the night’s big winners. Performances were given by BTS, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber and more.

The event also remembered late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died, aged 50, on March 25. The band – who won three awards – had been due to perform at the ceremony but cancelled after their bandmate’s passing.
