According to LA Times, the 58th Grammy Awards will hold two ceremonies: the pre-telecast ceremony, where about 70 of the 80 awards are handed out, and the second ceremony or the main telecast ceremony, where sensational performances take place and the winners in the major categories are revealed.
CNN reports that the event will feature singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, who received seven nominations; rapper from Compton Kendrick Lamar, who got the number 1 spot compared to all performers with 11 nods, including album of the year To Pimp a Butterfly, and The Weeknd, who also got seven nominations like Swift.
As stated by Entertainment Weekly, singer and songwriter Rihanna will take the stage of the Grammy Awards for the first time since the release of her latest album Anti. Adele, whose new album 25 wasn’t eligible this year at the Grammy Awards, is also slated to perform.
The rock supergroup The Hollywood Vampires, including Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry (lead guitarist for the American rock band Aerosmith) will make their live TV debut, as well as the cast of the Broadway show Hamilton, who will broadcast their opening number live from the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York.
Also, singer-songwriter and musician Jackson Browne will join the rock band The Eagles in a tribute to late band member Glenn Frey.
However, this year’s pre-telecast of the 58th Grammy Awards ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles and will be streamed live from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. PST on grammy.com/live and CBS.com.
