This total marks an increase from last year’s 21,719 submissions. All entries were due Aug. 23 and have since undergone a vetting process to verify eligibility in preparation for the first-round ballot, which voting members can access online today.

Music’s Biggest Night® will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden on Jan. 28, 2018.
