Is there a red carpet?
Yes. e! will be covering the red carpet from 4 p.m. and “Live From E!: Grammys” kicks off at 6 p.m. Arrivals will be streamed from 6:30pm on grammy.com
Who will host?
Trevor Noah, from “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, is back for a second year.
What does the competition look like?
Batiste leads the pack with 11 nominations, covering American roots music, classical, jazz and R&B. He is followed by Doja Cat, HER and Justin Bieber, all with eight nods. Billie Eilish (“Happier Than Ever”) and Rodrigo (“Sour”) each earned seven nominations, including record, album and song of the year. (Rodrigo is also nominated for Best New Artist.)
In addition to Rodrigo in the Best New Artists category are the Kid Laroi, whose ubiquitous pop radio single “Stay” features Bieber; Saweetie (“Best Friend” with Doja Cat); and Finneas, Eilish’s producer brother. (Read more about the top new artist nominees here.)
Can we talk about Bruno?
We regret to inform you that this is again not possible. The Grammys, voted on by more than 11,000 Recording Academy members, recognize music released from September 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021, representing more recent hits such as Adele’s “30” or Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “We Don’t Talk.” About Bruno” will have to wait until next year.
Who will perform?
The lineup includes J Balvin with Maria Becerra, Batiste, Brothers Osborne, Brandi Carlile, Eilish, Lady Gaga, HER, John Legend, Lil Nas X with Jack Harlow, Rodrigo, Silk Sonic, Chris Stapleton and Carrie Underwood. At this time, it is unclear whether BTS will take the stage. Although Foo Fighters are no longer performing, producers have said they are working on a way to honor Hawkins at the ceremony. Something else to look forward to, especially if you’re a music theater fan: a tribute to composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, who died in November at age 91, starring Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt and Rachel Zegler.
