Tonight is the night…the biggest night in music! Here is a breakdown of everyone scheduled to appear at this year’s Grammy’s:
Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney
This trio will perform “FourFiveSeconds,” their collaborative track due out this year on Rihanna’s new album. Rihanna is nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “The Monster” with Eminem. Kanye is also on tap to perform a solo set during tonight’s show. (Between McCartney, Rihanna and West, there are 46 Grammys between them!)
The Queen of Pop is back for her fifth Grammy performance! While she is known for her unpredictability there’s no doubt that she’ll be performing a song from her new album “Rebel Heart,” due out March 6. We can’t wait!
Mary J. Blige and Sam Smith
It’s been whispered that this pair will be singing “Stay With Me,” Smith’s smash hit which is up for Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Smith is also nominated for Best New Artist, Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for “In The Lonely Hour.” Blige is nominated for Best Dance Recording for “F For You” with Disclosure.
Just one week after her Super Bowl halftime performance, Katy Perry will take over yet another stage to sing “By the Grace of God” off her nominated album, “Prism.” She’s up for two awards, Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance for “Dark Horse” and Best Pop Vocal Album. We can only imagine what weird props and outfits she’ll have with her tonight.
Chris Martin and Beck
Chris Martin teams up with Beck to perform a song off his nominated album “Morning Phase.” Beck’s “Blue Moon” is nominated for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song. Coldplay is also up for three categories: Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance for “A Sky Full of Stars,” Best Pop Vocal Album for “Ghost Stories” and Best Music Film for “Ghost Stories.”
Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, Questlove and Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is the only 2015 nominee from this group with “X” nominated for both Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year. While we have no idea what this bunch will perform, we expect big things.
Australian singer Sia confirmed that she would perform at this year’s Grammys — her first time ever. Sia is nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Music Video for “Chandelier.”
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga
It’s safe to say this is probably the most unexpected duo you’ll see on stage tonight. They are set to perform a song off of “Cheek to Cheek,” which is nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
For those country fans out there…heartthrob Eric Church is taking a break from his tour and hitting the Grammy stage. He’s also up for a few awards, including Best Country Song and Best Country Album.
Common, John Legend and (probably) Beyoncé
Common and John Legend will sing their Oscar-nominated song “Glory” from “Selma.” This pair won a Golden Globe for the track last month. Beyoncé is rumored to join them, so we fully expect this to be one of the best of the night! (Because let’s be real, anything Beyond does is flawless.)
Ariana Grande’s second album, “My Everything,” is up for Best Pop Vocal Album this year. She’s slated to perform, but we’re just not sure which of her hit songs she’ll sing. Way to keep us on our toes!
All we can hope for is that he doesn’t sing “Happy.” We’ve already heard it 15 times during our car ride this morning. Also curious as to what type of hat he’ll be rocking…
Hozier and Annie Lennox
We are now all familiar with the song “Take Me To Church” which is up for Song of the Year, but the question is do you know who actually sings it? First-time nominee Hozier, the man behind the hit song, will join Grammy veteran Annie Lenox on stage. Lenox’s album “Nostalgia” is up for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
Jessie J and Tom Jones
Jessie J’s “Bang Bang,” is probably still stuck in your head, and might always be — it’s up for a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance. We’re looking forward to seeing this superstar do her thing. With Tom Jones? Why not?!
Who doesn’t love a good Usher performance? The man can certainly entertain!
The queen of country Miranda Lambert is set to take the stage tonight. Lambert is nominated for four awards, including Best Country Song and Best Country Album.
Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani
Enjoy the show!
