Beyoncé who received nine nominations won’t be gracing the stage with her presence. We previously shared that Megan Thee Stallion is nominated for four Grammys: Record of The Year, Best Rap Song and Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance. Lil Baby received noms for Best Rap Song and Best Performance for his single “Bigger Picture.” Two Album of the Year nominees won’t be performing, Jacob Collier and Jhené Aiko. Aiko is set to host the Grammy Awards pre-show. (We’re still rooting for GIVĒON: Best R&B album).

As a nod to those who have been impacted by COVID-19, the evening will feature tributes to independent venues impacted by the pandemic. Individuals who work day-to-day at New York’s Apollo Theater, Nashville’s The Station Inn, The Hotel Café, and The Troubadour (Los Angeles) will present various categories throughout the evening. 

The 63rd  annual Grammy Awards will be hosted by Trevor Noah, it will air live on Sunday, March 14 at 8:00 pm ET/5:00 pm PT on CBS from the Los Angeles Convention Center. The ceremony will also be streaming live and on-demand at Paramount+. You can head to the official Grammy site for additional details.
