When it’s happening
Sunday, Jan. 28, beginning at 7:30 p.m. EST on CBS. The Grammys usually take place in February but are happening earlier this year because of the Olympics.
James Corden is returning for a second year to host.
Cardi B, Rihanna, SZA, Lady Gaga, P!nk, Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Patti Lupone and Alessia Cara, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, Childish Gambino, Sam Smith, Elton John, Dear Evan Hansen‘s Ben Platt, Logic, Little Big Town, and Khalid will preform.
Many people were upset that Ed Sheeran was not nominated in any of the major categories. Demi Lovato, Harry Styles and Niall Horan didn’t get any nominations at all.
Artists boycotting the show
For the past couple years, many artists, including Justin Bieber, and Kanye West, have been outspoken with their frustration toward the Recording Academy for not recognizing certain artists. This year (because of more surprising nomination snubs) other artists are rumored to not be boycotting like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Lorde. Justin Timberlake will also not be in attendance, as he is busy preparing for the Superbowl half-time show.
