Yesterday, I posted the official announcement post for the 2013 Grammy Awards. While I won't repeat everything I talked about, I'll remind you all of the rules for nominating your faves:
How it works: For each category, you get THREE nominations maximum. No more, no less. Nominate as many options as you can think of; you can leave any of the categories blank if you don't have anything to nominate. As long as you adhere to the three nomination max, it doesn't matter how many you come up with for each.
I'll leave the nomination post up for submissions until a week from tonight - December 16th. In a few days, I'll submit a reminder post so you can be sure you voice was heard~
After I tally up all the votes, I will post the longlist of ten or so nominees for each category, and from there, the community will vote for their five favorites of the longlist. After the top five nominees have been tallied, I'll post the final nominations for each, and will reveal them sometime at the end of this month probably, maybe early January.
A reminder of the OFFICIAL RULES:
1) The eligibility year for the 2013 Grammy Awards is Oct. 1, 2011, to Sept. 30, 2012. If you're not sure if something you want to nominate is eligible, then check Wikipedia/Amazon/etc. Please pay attention to this rule, because lots of people don't bother to check before nominating and it's annoying etc etc etc.
2) Songs/albums have to have been released in the US to be eligible. Sorry, Pixie Lott :(
3) The format for nominating is Artist - Song/Album.
Let's get to the voting!
