The biggest night in music is almost here! The 58th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in L.A. on Monday, February 15 — and Us Weekly has the scoop on what you need to know ahead of the star-studded show, from presenters to performers and everything in between.
Will there be more bad blood? Taylor Swift is set to kick off the event just days after Kanye West debuted his new song “Famous,” which includes a controversial lyric about her. “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous,” he raps in the track. On Friday, he claimed that it wasn’t a diss and that it was the songstress’ own idea.
Other singers who will hit the stage include Adele, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Kendrick Lamar, Johnny Depp,Justin Bieber, Luke Bryan, John Legend, Ellie Goulding, Meghan Trainor, Robin Thicke and Chris Stapleton. For more names, go here.
Of course, in between performances, there will be plenty of awards to hand out, too. Lamar is up for 11 nods and can make history as the first rapper to win Song of the Year. Swift and The Weeknd both scored seven nominations, including Record of the Year. They’ll go up against D’Angelo, Ed Sheeran, The Vanguard and Mark Ronsonin that category.
