“I wasn’t nervous. I felt like we’d done a lot of important work on our membership.

We’ve done a lot of outreach into different communities that we felt were maybe underrepresented in our voting membership.

… So I felt like the timing was right for our membership to be able to directly decide who the nominees were.

That’s why we felt good with removing the nominations review committees at the time that we did it.”

When asked why Wizkid’s Essence did not make the cut for the Record of the Year award, the Grammy boss told Billboard;
