Lady Gaga is changing the rules for Grammy Awards

Lady Gaga’s influence on American music industry is so big that Grammy organizers have changed the eligibility criteria under the category “Best New Artist”, after its controversial exclusion from the nominations in 2009.

However, Lady Gaga hasn’t been nominated in this category in 2010.

Although Lady Gaga was by far the most successful artist who debuted on the music scene in 2009, she was not considered eligible under the category “Best New Artist” because she was nominated at a different category a year earlier.

Recording Academy’s representatives – Grammy awarding institution – have decided Wednesday that a previous selection – but not a victory – will not be an impediment to the nomination of an artist from now on. American experts have taken into account in their decision the current trends in the music industry, under which most artists released their debut singles long before their debut album or starts singing in duet with other artists on their albums.

Lady Gaga has been nominated for a Grammy in the category “Best Dance”, in 2008, with her debut hit single entitled “Just Dance”. Her first album, The Fame, arrived in the U.S. music charts by the end of that year, after the period of eligibility.

Lady Gaga has received five Grammy nominations last year, but its exclusion from the category “Best New Artist” allowed Zac Brown Band to go home with the trophy.
