A group of top celebrities, musicians and entertainers have become fed up with the recent Grammy cuts that eliminated quite a few music categories set for 2012. Paul Simon and Carlos Santana are among those taking a stand against the new rules that say any category which receives less than 25 submissions will be thrown out entirely.

In addition, this would leave genres that only acquire 25-39 entries will only receive a maximum of three nominations, but that’s not the end. Many of the categories impacted by the decision snag the top honors anyway, so does that narrow who’s in the running completely? Of course it does and that’s why Simon and Santana have taken measures to use their weight in the industry to get things back in order.

Reportedly, Simon has written Grammy officials including CEO Neil Portnow to throw out the decision and cause possibly another revision to the policies set in place after the 2011 ceremony earlier this year.

To find out the results and to see if Simon, Santana and the other celebrities protesting have made any progress, click on the links provided below. How do you feel about the category cuts? Does it matter much to you? Share your thoughts with us below on the message board.
