The 64th Annual Grammy Awards are here. Are you excited?
The event was postponed for the second year in a row thanks to COVID. It was originally supposed to take place in January at Los Angeles’ Arena. With the rescheduled April date, the ceremony was moved to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. This is the first time that the Grammys has taken place anywhere other than LA or New York since 1973 when it took place in Nashville.
As with any modern-day Grammys, there has been controversy. It was reported that Kanye West and Taylor Swift were added to the Album Of The Year nominees slate only a day before the nominations were announced; West was more recently barred from performing at the ceremony due to “concerning online behavior.” Drake, after being nominated for two awards, withdrew himself from consideration. And after facing criticism for Marilyn Manson and Louis CK picking up nominations, Grammys CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said that the Recording Academy “won’t look back at people’s history.” Manson was later removed from the nomination slate, though only for a technicality; Louis CK is still nominated in Best Comedy Album.
The 2022 Grammys roll on. There are a number of first-time nominees this year, which means we might see a few first-time winners. Those could include ABBA, Selena Gomez, Low, Japanese Breakfast, and Sun Ra Arkestra. Tonight’s ceremony, hosted by Trevor Noah, will include performances from Silk Sonic, Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, BTS, Lil Nas X & Jack Harlow, Olivia Rodrigo, and more. There will also be a tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters were originally scheduled to perform), a “Stand Up For Ukraine” segment, and a rare television appearance from MusiCares’ Person Of The Year Joni Mitchell.
Jon Batiste leads this year’s field of nominations with 11. We ran down who should win and who will win for some of the night’s awards, but anything can happen. We’ll be updating this post all day as the results come in, starting with the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony, which starts at 3:30PM ET. The official broadcast begins at 8PM.
