On February 4, these artists will perform at the Crypto.com Arena, promising fans a night they will never forget.
Also, performances by music legends like Joni Mitchell and Billy Joel will go down in history. Nine-time Grammy winner Joni Mitchell will take the stage for the first time during the show, making people even more excited for it.
Billy Joel will perform just a few days after putting out his first song in 17 years, "Turn the Lights Back On." Olivia Rodrigo called him an honorary "girlie."
The performers, such as Burna Boy, Travis Scott, and Luke Combs, come from various musical styles and show that the Grammys are dedicated to honoring musical excellence in all areas.
Top Honorees and Record-Setting Potential
As of now, SZA has the most Grammy nominations with nine, all for her second album, "SOS."
Phoebe Bridgers and Victoria Monét are right behind her with seven nominations each.
Seven of the eight Album, Record, and Song of the Year awards were won by women at the 2024 Grammy Awards, which show how strong and influential female artists are.
Taylor Swift, Jon Batiste, Miley Cyrus, and Billie Eilish are just a few of the big names also up for multiple awards. Swift has the chance to set a record for most Album of the Year wins, making the night even more exciting.
Trevor Noah Returns as Host
Former Daily Show host and comedian Trevor Noah will host the Grammys for the fourth year in a row.
Noah is known for being smart and funny, so his return makes for a fun evening of celebration and laughter.
Interestingly, Noah is also a nominee, which makes hosting more interesting.
Premiere Ceremony and Additional Awards
People will be glued to the TV show, but the Grammy Awards usually have the Premiere Ceremony before the main event.
The Premiere Ceremony will stream on YouTube starting at 3:30 p.m. ET on February 4.
During this time, several awards will be given out. Brandy Clark, Laufey, Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, and other great artists will perform at this event.
This year, the Grammys have made some changes. For example, eight nominees are now in the Big Four categories instead of ten.
The Grammys are committed to keeping up with the constantly changing music scene by adding three new awards: Best African Music Performance, Best Pop Dance Recording, and Best Alternative Jazz Album.
It's important to note that the Academy has a rule against AI adding to submissions, emphasising humans' importance in the music-making process.
