On March 7, 2021, the Grammys announced what fans had been waiting for: the lineup of performers for their 2021 ceremony. According to the New York Post, the award show will air on Sunday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and will be hosted by comedian Trevor Noah. As always, many high-profile stars are set to perform, including Bad Bunny, Harry Styles, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, Haim, Doja Cat, and Maren Morris, to name a few.
Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Roddy Rich have not only earned themselves six nominations, but they will also take to the stage during the ceremony and will undoubtedly make an impression on viewers. Lipa and Swift’s latest studio albums, Future Nostalgia and Folklore, also have the chance to win themselves the biggest award of the night: Album of the Year (per Variety).
As previously reported by the BBC, teen sensation Billie Eilish was the biggest winner last year and won an impressive five trophies. The “Bad Guy” singer will make another appearance at the award show with a performance. Eilish might have to make some extra space for her awards, though, as her latest single, “Everything I Wanted,” is nominated in three of the main categories. She also sang the latest James Bond theme song “No Time To Die,” which is also up for Best Song Written for Visual Media (per Variety).
There will be many changes at this year's ceremony
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony will be a lot different than usual. The Recording Academy has not announced whether the performances will be recorded in advance or live on the night of the ceremony. However, they did say they “will pay tribute to the independent venues, which have been greatly impacted by the pandemic,” per The New York Times. “From bartenders to box office managers, those who work day-to-day at the Troubadour (Los Angeles), The Hotel Café (Los Angeles), the Apollo Theater (New York City), and The Station Inn (Nashville) will present various categories throughout the night,” the Academy explained.
The award show was originally scheduled to take place on Jan. 31, 2021, but was postponed to March 14, 2021. In February 2021, Variety reported that sources told them the ceremony is going to be held outside at the Los Angeles Convention Center. This year, there will be no audience and a strictly limited amount of media for the live red carpet.
