Five new categories have been created within the Grammy Awards. Awards for winning them will begin in 2023:
- Best Songwriter (awarded to both self-written performers and those who do it for a performer);
- Best musical act in the alternative genre;
- Best musical act in the "Americana" genre.
Also there will be nominations for Best Video Game Music and Best Poetry Performance (with or without music).
One more new, special nomination is Best Song for Social Change. This category will include compositions which lyrics address sensitive social themes and highlight peace, love, and compassion.
