“It’s important to The Recording Academy that the GRAMMY stage showcases artists across all disciplines and genres, and we take pride in our ability to elevate the best in music while, at the same time, introducing audiences to sounds and songs they’d previously not heard,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “As fans’ access to music has increased, so has their appetite for variety expanded. This year’s lineup already reflects that—and we’re still not done!”
