The latest round of nominees comes after the Grammy Hall of Fame took two years off in order to make some changes. The Grammy’s announced its return on March 5. Aside from the Hall of Fame Gala, the process itself is now much more selective. 2024 included just 10 recordings—four albums and six singles. Previously, 25 recordings were admitted each year, meaning that there are 1,152 recordings in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
