Big changes made to Olivia Rodrigo's Grammy nomination
'High School Musical: The Musical: Series' fans will have no doubt been streaming Olivia Rodrigo's debut album 'Sour' nonstop since its release.
Well, the TV fans are not alone, we are loving it.
As are the Recording Academy which is why Olivia has been nominated for a Grammy!
Olivia Rodrigo also recently scooped up an award from Variety:
"thank u @shirleyhalperin and @variety for naming me songwriter of the year🥺 and thank u sweet avril for giving it to meeee."
When the Grammy nominations were announced in November, Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff and St. Vincent were listed as album of the year nominees for their role as songwriters on Olivia Rodrigo’s 'Sour'. That raised some eyebrows because those three songwriters weren’t actively involved in the creation of 'Sour'. It’s simply a case that Rodrigo and her producer and frequent collaborator, Daniel Nigro, included a clip of an old song of theirs.
The Recording Academy has now made an update on its site which indicates that it has withdrawn the nominations for 'Sour' for Swift, Antonoff and St. Vincent (Annie Clark). Swift and Antonoff are still listed as album of the year nominees for their work on Swift’s 'evermore'. Antonoff also remains a nominee for producer of the year, non-classical. St. Vincent remains a nominee for best alternative music album for Daddy’s Home.
