In 2018 the Grammy Awards will be decided through online voting. This is the first time that this voting process will take place electronically as the Recording Academy has done away with the paper ballots. They hope that by switching to a digital process, they will get more engagement and participation from younger members of the academy. Also in an effort to diversify, they have added a rap review committee. These changes come from criticism over the past few years with fans saying that the academy is dated and out of touch. The Grammys will be held on January 28th at Madison Square Garden.
