The Grammys are here again. This Sunday anyone who is anyone in the music industry will be suiting up and heading to New York to celebrate the best that music has to offer.
The show, hosted by karaoke-king and talk show honcho James Corden, is chocked with A-list performances from Rhianna, DJ Kaled and Bryson Tiller, to Bruno Mars and Kesha. However, rumour has it that Album of The Year nominee Lorde is not attending, since she was not asked to perform. But who knows?
Other artists not making an appearance include Ed Sheeran, despite picking up a whole host of nominations, and Taylor Swift, whose album Reputation will be up for nomination next year, due to its late release date.
If you’re expecting a protest similar to the Golden Globes, I wouldn’t hold your breath. Despite accusations of sexual assault gaining ground in the music industry, I have a feeling that this awards show will be a celebration of diversity (sounds almost old-fashioned, doesn’t it?), with artists such as Jay-Z, Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar leading the field.
The Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday January 28, 2018 at Madison Square Gardens. It’s the first time in 15 years the show has moved outside Los Angeles. The ceremony will be broadcast live at 7:30pm Eastern Time (12.30am MONDAY GMT).
