Grammy nominations date is announced and they’re switching it up

The nominees for the 2015 Grammy Awards will be announced on the morning of December 5, except for one category: album of the year.

The nominees for the top prize will come later that day when the Recording Academy debuts a TV special, A Very Grammy Christmas, which will feature Pharrell Williams and Ariana Grande.

The Grammys first launched a televised concert announcing its main nominees in 2008.

Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said it was time to switch it up.
