The 2023 GRAMMYs AKA the 65th GRAMMY Awards, will air live on Sunday, Feb. 5, from Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena, and it will broadcast live on the CBS Television Network and stream live and on-demand on Paramount+ at 8-11:30 p.m. ET / 5-8:30 p.m. PT+. The special ceremony’s broadcast time, hosts, presenters, and performers will be announced soon.

American Idol OG winner, The Voice coach and talk show host Kelly Clarkson is nominated in the Traditional Pop Album category for her When Christmas Comes Around album. Additionally, X Factor alum and former One Direction member, Harry Styles is nominated in six categories for his album Harry’s House and song “As it Was”: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Music Video, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album.

American Idol alum Carrie Underwood released her latest album Denim & Rhinestones in June, and received no country nominations for the album or its singles. And despite scoring 5 country No. 1’s, Scotty McCreery not only got snubbed this year by the major country award shows, but by the Grammys as well. 

Notable: The Voice alum Morgan Wallen may be back in Country Music’s good graces after his racist controversy, but he has yet to be nominated for a Grammy. He was submitted to several country categories including Record and Song of the Year, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song, all for “Wasted on You,”
