How many award categories are there?

There are 91 categories at the 2023 Grammy Awards, which is the most number of awards given out in the ceremony since 2010. They are mainly broken down according to music genre, including pop, dance/electronic, rock, alternative, R&B and country. There are also categories for spoken word poetry, audio books, musical theatre, composing, production and music video or film.

Five new categories have been added for this year; Best Alternative Music Performance, Best Americana Performance, Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media, Best Spoken Word Poetry Album, and Songwriter of the Year, Non-Classical.

Speaking to the Grammys he said: “Just putting it all together, combining different genres, getting the musicians in sync with each other and the audience, keeping the audience in tune with what’s happening. One of my favourite things about the GRAMMYs as a whole is it is one of the few places where you get to experience artists in their rawest element, which is performing their music live … there’s nothing like it. You develop a deep appreciation for what these people are doing beyond just the music that they make.”

Other presenters will include Cardi B, Viola Davis, Dwanye Johnson, Olivia Rodrigo and James Corden. Whilst viewers will be kept entertained with performances from stars including Harry Styles, Lizzo, Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige.
