The Grammys have denied that Taylor Swift and Kanye West were nominated at the last-minute because of their feud and “appeal” after it was reported that they were added to the list of potential winners the day before they were announced.

Earlier this week, the Grammys unveiled the list of nominees for their 2022 award ceremony, further revealing that they’d upped the number in the main fields to 10.

 

But in a report by the New York Times, it was claimed that the decision to up the numbers was made at the eleventh hour, with nominees such as Taylor, Kanye, Lil Nas X and ABBA amongst the artists to benefit.

According to the outlet, it was possible to deduce which artists had been added to each field as a previous “final nominations list” — made up of the other eight nominees — had been circulating before they were announced.

In the Album of the Year category, it was reported that Taylor Swift’s Evermore and Kanye West’s Donda were last-minute additions, joining the likes of Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever and Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour.
