Many artists have boycotted the Grammys but none have seen results like The Weeknd after his 2021 boycott.

The Grammys announced a major change is coming to future award shows.
On Friday the recording Academy announced changes to the list of rules to “reflect its ongoing commitment to evolve with the musical landscape” and “ensure that the Grammy Awards rules and guidelines are transparent and equitable.”

The most notable update is the decision to remove the nomination Review Committee which were groups of “15-30 highly skilled music peers who represented and voted within their genre communities for the final selection of nominees.”

“I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling. His music this year was excellent, and his contributions to the music community and broader world are worthy of everyone’s admiration.
