Nominees for all 84 categories of the 61st Grammy Awards will be revealed on December 5, marking the start of the build-up to the February ceremony. Those nominees will be chosen from among recordings released between October 1, 2017, and September 30, 2018.
Grammy Week then kicks off February 6, with a series of celebrations including the MusiCares Person of the Year gala on February 8 and a celebration of nominees on February 9.
