After more than a decade in Los Angeles, the Grammy Awards, now in its 60th year, will take place at Manhattan’s iconic Madison Square Garden, a venue that last hosted the event in February 2003. To mark the show’s return to New York City, a Broadway tribute is planned that will feature music from composers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein. The biggest names in the music industry will be attending the night’s festivities, while many of them will also be performing their nominated hits. Some of the notable acts that will grace the stage are Rihanna/DJ Khaled/Bryson Tiller (‘Wild Thoughts’), Lady Gaga, Logic/Alessia Cara/Khalid (‘1-800-273-8255’), Bruno Mars and Cardi B (‘Finesse Remix’), Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Pink and Childish Gambino (‘Redbone’). As the day of the show approaches, additional performers may be confirmed.
James Corden, known for his popular television show and viral Carpool Karaoke series, will host this year’s award show, for his second time. It will be broadcast live on CBS on Sunday, January 28 at 7:30 PM ET/4:30 PM PT. For viewers with participating cable providers, the show will be available to stream online, via CBS All Access. Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammys gala, which the legendary producer hosts with the Recording Academy the night before the awards, will honor Jay-Z this year for his musical contributions and his charitable work. The prestigious invite-only event is scheduled for Saturday, January 27th at 12:00 AM.
