It is for the first time that two dozen more of the 83 total categories will gradually be revealed from 9AM to 2PM ET on various celebrity Twitter accounts.

Evan Greene, the CMO at the Recording Academy, was quoted in an interview saying:

“We considered announcing everything at once, but that wasn’t conducive to our goal of celebrating each nominee. So, we decided to let each announcement live its own moment.”

The final category, which is the Album of the Year, will be revealed at 9PM ET during A Very Grammy Christmas that will feature performances from Ariana Grande, Maroon 5 and Tim McGraw.

Here is the partial list of nominees in their respective categories:
