With less than three weeks to go until this year’s GRAMMYs, the Recording Academy have added a string of huge artists to the performance line up.
Heading up the new announcement are Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. The pair are nominated for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their smash hit ‘Despacito’ featuring Justin Bieber.
Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be bringing their ‘Finesse’ to the ceremony, with the latter making her GRAMMY performance debut. Five-time winner Bruno will be hoping to add to his collection of awards on the evening as he is nominated in six categories. Cardi B has also earned two nominations for her hit ‘Bodak Yellow’.
Kesha will be making her GRAMMY performance debut on the evening and is nominated for two awards: Best Pop Solo Performance for “Praying” and Best Pop Vocal Album for Rainbow. SZA will also be making her performance debut and has earned five nominations.
Rounding off the new announcement are first-time GRAMMY nominees Alessia Cara, Khalid and Logic. Following the impact of their performance at the VMAs last year, the three artists have a very special and important performance planned. They will be joined on stage by a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Khalid has earned himself five nominations at this year’s ceremony, whilst Alessia and Logic have four and two nominations respectively.
They join the previously announced performers: Lady Gaga, Pink, Childish Gambino, Little Big Town, Patti LuPone and Ben Platt.
The 60th GRAMMY Awards, hosted by James Corden, will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden, New York on January 28 at 7:30 pm ET/4:30 pm PT. Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar lead the pack with eight and seven nominations respectively.
