Lady GagaThe Grammy Awards are making some changes to their rulebook after a technicality rendered Lady Gaga ineligible to compete in the Best New Artist category at this year's awards.

Gaga's stratospheric success and popularity in 2009 were undeniable, but a 2008 Best Dance Recording nomination for her hit single 'Just Dance' prevented her from being nominated at this January's show (the award ended up going to the Zac Brown Band). The Associated Press reports that the Recording Academy made the changes to provide eligibility to previous Grammy nominees who have not released a full-length album and who have not won.
