When the 64th Grammy Awards would take place in January next year, Jon Batiste’s chances of winning at least one award are really high, given that he has bagged a total of 11 nominations in different categories. The nominations of Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday at the Grammy’s official website.

Jon Batiste has been nominated in various categories including, Record of the Year (for the song "Freedom"), Album of the Year, Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Best R&B Album, Best American Roots Song and Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

This year, the nomination process had undergone drastic changes because of the controversy that had stirred last year in regard to ‘The Weeknd’. A number of well-known Black artists, including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Drake, spoke about Black artists being often overlooked in various categories such as Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.

For the first time, the nominations were announced on the Recording Academy's website, without any television broadcast. The 64th Grammy Awards is scheduled to take place in Los Angels on January 31, next year.
