On Wednesday, December 5, The Recording Academy announced its nominees for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, to be held on February 10, 2013 in Los Angeles at the Staples Center, and broadcast on CBS from 8 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. PT/ET . Once again, the Grammy Awards will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound.

The Recording Academy states that this year's Grammy Awards process registered more than 17,000 submissions over a 12-month eligibility period, from October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012. Grammy ballots for the final round of voting will be mailed on December 19 to the voting members of The Recording Academy. They are due back to the accounting firm of Deloitte by January 16, 2013, when they will be tabulated and the results kept secret until the 55th Grammy telecast.

Following its Board of Trustees meeting in Los Angeles last spring, The Recording Academy announced Grammy Awards category changes in the Classical, Jazz, Latin, and R&B Fields, including the addition of Best Classical Compendium, Best Latin Jazz Album, and Best Urban Contemporary Album as categories. The total number of categories to be recognized at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards will be 81.

The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Fun., Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West top the nominations with six each; the Black Keys, Chick Corea and Miguel each garner five nods; and producer Jeff Bhasker, mastering engineer Bob Ludwig and Nas are each up for four awards.

"The Grammy Awards process once again has produced a diverse and impressive list of nominations across multiple genres," says Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "This year's nominees truly represent an exceptional and vibrant creative community that exemplifies some of the highest levels of artistry and excellence in their respective fields. Combined with the fifth year of our primetime nominations special, we're off to an exciting start on the road to Music's Biggest Night."
