AS CREATIVE AWARDS TAXONOMY WEEK CONTINUES: Among the changes for next year's Grammy Awards:
- Songs with "samples or interpolations of previously written songs" now eligible in all songwriting categories, not just rap.
- "Dance/Electronica" awards are now "Dance/Electronic"

"A more formal, official guideline for the Alternative Music Field has been established. The new guideline states that the Best Alternative Music Album category is intended for recordings that take as a starting point any existing musical genre or combination of genres, and expand and redefine the boundaries of those genres. Though there may be considerable overlap with the Alternative radio format, this category is not intended to mirror it.
