You might recall that last year’s Grammy Awards were pushed back a bit due to a COVID outbreak. But, when it was televised there were some outlandish looks, masks were still a thing last year too. Now, the Grammys are back and better, and there’s a stacked lineup of performances that a gang of fans are looking forward to.
Taking place at the Crypto.com arena in Los Angeles and hosted by Trevor Noah, the biggest night in music is slated to be marked by a segment paying tribute to hip-hop’s reach. The Questlove-produced segment is set to include Big Boi, Busta Rhymes with Spliff Star, De La Soul, DJ Drama, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Missy Elliott, Future, GloRilla, Grandmaster Flash, Grandmaster Mele Mel & Scorpio/Ethiopian King, Ice-T, and more. Queen Latifah also made the cut!
With the crème de la crème of hip-hop on the horizon for the evening, we cannot wait to see what looks they pull off. While we wait for some large acts to arrive, we’ve already seen pop star Lizzo arrive in a stunning custom Dolce & Gabbana floral cape look which featured a corset top and stunning skirt – our fave Doja Cat has also arrived in a look clearly inspired by Wednesday Adams, it’s an all-black, fitted vinyl number by Atelier Versace. Minutes ahead of the live show, Cardi B appeared on the carpet with her husband Offset donning an electric blue gown by Gaurav Gupta. Anderson .Paak also popped up in a chic floral suit with a green hat.
