The Grammys are almost here! Even though there has been quite a bit of controversy leading up to the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, for those who want to support their favorite artists on music’s biggest night there are still the performances, awards, and red carpet to look forward to.
Alicia Keys is hosting for the second time and we have our fingers crossed for another dueling piano moment like last year. This year, the list of live performances could not be more watch-worthy if it tried and just goes to show how competitive many of the categories are this year. Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, H.E.R., the Jonas Brothers, and Tyler, the Creator are all performing, just to name a few. The Awards will also hold a tribute for Kobe Bryant, who died unexpectedly in a helicopter crash earlier on the day of the ceremony.
There have been some big changes this year to the Grammy Awards. Many of the changes have been in response to criticism over the years of the Grammys lacking in its representation of women both in nominations and the team that puts on the awards show. In 2019, Deborah Dugan replaced Neil Portnow as president and CEO of the Recording Academy, the first woman to hold the position in its 62-year history. In a sudden turn of events, she was removed from the position 10 days before the awards show. This will also be Ken Ehrlich’s last year executive producing the Grammys. He has been producing the awards show since 1980, but reportedly clashed with artists including Grande, Frank Ocean, and Lorde in recent years over creative differences.
Despite the drama, viewers are likely to be in it from the red carpet looks all the way through to the last performances and awards. Whoever goes home with one of music’s most coveted awards, the real winners are us because we get to watch all the performances. Given all of the turnover and changes the past couple years, we’re hoping that it marks a turning point for future years at the Grammys.
