The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday night, January 26, during a live ceremony that will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, and hosted for the second year in a row by Alicia Keys. But the Grammys are known as much for their performances as they are for their awards. So who’s taking the stage at the music industry’s biggest event? Scroll down to see who’s in the lineup, and keep coming back as more stars are announced.
Lizzo is the leading nominee of the night with eight bids including Album of the Year (“Cuz I Love You”), Record and Song of the Year (“Truth Hurts“) and Best New Artist. So unsurprisingly she has been announced as a performer for the telecast.
Meanwhile, teenage newcomer Billie Eilish is nominated six times. Like Lizzo she’s up for Album of the Year (“When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”), Record and Song of the Year (“Bad Guy“) and Best New Artist. And like Lizzo, she will be making her Grammy stage debut.
Lizzo and Eilish are the 11th and 12th artists who have been nominated in all four general field categories in the same year. And this is the first time two artists have ever accomplished that feat at once.
On the opposite end of the career spectrum are the Steven Tyler-fronted band Aerosmith, whom the recording academy is celebrating as MusiCares Person of the Year. They’ll be performing too. In fact, their first performance was at the 1991 telecast, so they’ve been rocking the Grammys for longer than Eilish has been alive.
And there’s more where that came from. Who are you most looking forward to at this year’s event?
