How to watch
This year, the awards show airs Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS and will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
The host of the Grammy Awards this year is comedian and former “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah. Noah is no stranger to entertainment, having hosted the biggest musical night of the past two years.
“It’s exciting. For me, it’s a cheat code because I’m a fan of almost everyone out there. It’s also interesting because of the travel,” Noah told Billboard. “The first was [during] COVID-19, and it was a whole different way to do the show. And then the next one was in Las Vegas because of the restrictions [in Los Angeles], and it was a different kind of show. Now that’s exciting [because] it will be the first for me in LA – it’s not only normal, but different for the right reasons.”
Beyoncé has the most Grammy nominations this year. She also achieved status as the most Grammy-nominated artist of all time, tied for the title with her husband, rapper Jay-Z. With nine nominations at this year’s awards show, the singer now has a total of 88 Grammy nominations.
The singer is up for Record of the Year for ‘Break My Soul’, Album of the Year for ‘Renaissance’, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Song for ‘Cuff It” and others. In the album of the year category, she faces ABBA for “Voyage”, Adele for “30”, Bad Bunny for “Un Verano Sin Ti”, Harry Styles for “Harry’s House”, Kendrick Lamar for “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” and Lizzo for “Special”.
Lamar follows Beyoncé in second place for most nominations with eight this year, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Rap Performance, all for “The Heart Part 5.” Tied for third place are Adele and Brandi Carlile with seven nominations each.
Many artists at this year’s Grammy Awards are also nominated in at least four of the night’s biggest categories. Performers include Bad Bunny, Sam Smith and Combs, who are nominated for Album of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song, respectively.
Album of the Year nominees Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Lizzo and Styles will also take the stage on Sunday night. The show will also feature performances from Kim Petras and Steve Lacy.
There will also be tributes to the many musical icons who passed away this year, including country music superstar Loretta Lynn, Migos rapper Takeoff and Fleetwood Mac keyboardist and singer-songwriter Christine McVie.
The Lynn tribute will be performed by Kasey Musgraves, who will sing one of Lynn’s most iconic songs, “Coal Miner’s Daughter”; Quavo and Maverick City Music will pay tribute to Takeoff with a performance of “Without You”; and Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood and Bonnie Raitt will reunite to pay tribute to McVie with the song “Songbird.”
In addition to the nominees and legendary artists who will be present at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, many stars will take the stage as presenters during the ceremony.
