There have been SO many performers announced for the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards that I’ve seriously been struggling to keep up between the solo performances, the duets, and the tributes!
And if that’s been your case too, here’s a little recap of Sunday’s performances just for you!
First of, let me just say that since they can’t have a total of 35 artists perform one by one within one single show, the Recording Academy has paired up some incredible artists this year!
Nominee Jessie J & GRAMMY winner Tom Jones.
Nominee Hozier & GRAMMY winner and current nominee Annie Lennox.
GRAMMY winners and current nominees Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga
GRAMMY winners Adam Levine & Gwen Stefani.
GRAMMY winners and current nominees Beck & Chris Martin
GRAMMY winner and current nominee Mary J. Blige & nominee Sam Smith
Nominee Brandy Clark & GRAMMY winner Dwight Yoakam
GRAMMY winners Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, Questlove & nominee Ed Sheeran
GRAMMY winner and current nominee Rihanna & Kanye West with GRAMMY winner Paul McCartney
And in addition to these amazing collaborations, GRAMMY winners AC/DC and Madonna will be performing, along with GRAMMY winners and current nominees Common, Miranda Lambert, John Legend, Juanes, Usher and Pharrell Williams. It was also announced that Kanye West would return to the stage at some point for a solo performance. Other nominees to join the lineup for a first GRAMMY stage experience include Eric Church, Ariana Grande, Sia and lastly Katy Perry, that has already announced that she would perform “By The Grace Of God.”
Finally GRAMMY Cultural Ambassador To China, pianist Lang Lang; and Jeff Lynne’s ELO will also be performing while two-time GRAMMY winner LL Cool J will return as host.
The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for The Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is director, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.
