The 63rd annual Grammy Awards: When and Where?
The Grammys, like most awards shows, usually trickle out performer announcements, but the Recording Academy decided this year to announce them in one fell swoop.
Artists set to perform on the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on March 14 include Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Taylor Swift, who were among the year's top nominees, with six nods each.
Hosted by Trevor Noah, the show will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center and its surroundings. All performances will emanate from there, though the Grammys will make use of other venues for the reading of nominations and announcement of winners in various categories.
Who Will Perform at 2021 Grammy Awards
Bad Bunny, Black Pumas, Cardi B, BTS, Brandi Carlile, DaBaby, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Mickey Guyton, Haim, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Lil Baby, Dua Lipa, Chris Martin, John Mayer, Megan Thee Stallion, Maren Morris, Post Malone, Roddy Ricch, Harry Styles, and Taylor Swift will perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, March 14, the Recording Academy has announced.
Nearly all of the artists are nominees, and several — including Styles, Megan Thee Stallion, Bad Bunny, DaBaby, Doja Cat and Guyton — will be making their debut as Grammy performers.
The ceremony takes place “in and around” the Los Angeles Convention Center, under strict COVID protocol. “Artists will be coming together, while still safely apart, to play music for each other as a community and celebrate the music that unites us all,” according to the announcement. The audience will be limited to performers, nominees and a small number of their guests
This will be Swift's seventh performance on the Grammy telecast and her first in five years. She is widely expected to win album of the year for the third time with her hit album Folklore.
This will be the sixth performance for both Martin (counting Coldplay) and Mayer; the fifth for Lambert; the third for Cardi B and Morris; and the second for Carlile, Eilish, Howard, Lipa and Post Malone.
Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion are the only best new artist candidates who are set to perform.
All of the performers are current nominees except Cardi B and Mayer.
Of the 22 performers, 11 are female solo artists; a 12th performer is a female group, Haim.
Nine of the performers are Black -- counting the mixed-race duo Black Pumas. There is one Latin performer (Bad Bunny) and one Asian performer (BTS).
The First Telecast and Live Stream of Grammy Awards
This will be the first Grammy telecast since Ken Ehrlich wound up a 40-year run as the show’s producer or executive producer. It will also be the first show with Noah as host. Jon Stewart, Noah’s predecessor as host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, hosted the Grammys twice, in 2001-02.
Fulwell 73 Productions will produce the telecast for the Recording Academy. Ben Winston is executive producer, Jesse Collins and Raj Kapoor are co-executive producers, Fatima Robinson, Josie Cliff, and David Wild are producers, Patrick Menton is talent producer, and Hamish Hamilton is director. Wild is also one of the show's writers.
The telecast will air live on Sunday, March 14, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS. The show will also be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
