What to expect at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards

Alicia Keys and James Corden

And while she sang to Corden about needing advice on The Late Late Show, she confidently told ET of the past hosts, "No, I don't need any advice from them!"

The awards bash struck a sour note past year when only one woman, Best New Artist Alessia Cara, won in a major category. I'm especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year!

Who will be performing at the awards show? That's how I felt, I mean, you know I still feel that way.

Her music has broken boundaries in this past year and it would be a sight to behold if Cardi B snags any of these awards, not only because her talent merits the recognition but because it would be historical.

No one, really, besides Alicia Keys should have been in the running to host the Grammys this year. "He's better than me", she joked. Alicia Keys, a five-time Grammy victor, will be hosting the event in Los Angeles for the first time in her career.




The biggest pull out at the moment is 'thank u, next' singer Ariana Grande, who was slated to perform until Grammys producer Ken Erlich said that it was too late for Grande to pull a set together and cancelled the performance.

Ready for this? Keys has won a grand total of 15 Grammys over the course of her career so far! According to Pitchfork, the other artists who have pulled out are Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino and Drake, all of whom are up for multiple awards this year. Her first award came way back in 2002, when she snagged the coveted best new artist award, plus song of the year, record of the year, best R&B song, and best female R&B performance for "Fallin'".

The annual Grammy Awards has always been the most talked about night in the music industry; and for good reason.

As for Best New Artist, it comes down to Chloe X Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, H.E.R, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. The Money hit-maker previously received nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

Get ready for a living room concert because some of the biggest names in music will take the stage, including Camila Cabello, Ricky Martin, Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Little Big Town, Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Miley Cyrus.
