The final countdown! The 57th Annual Grammy Awards are around the corner, and as the stars tweak their red carpet outfits and rehearse their performance sets, others are busily getting their seating arrangements finalized. Will Taylor Swift be sitting next to nemesis Katy Perry? Will Kim Kardashian get a lot of on-camera time? New photos show just that leading up to the big night at L.A.’s Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 8.
Swift, not so shockingly, has landed herself a front row seat for the big bash. The extra room suits the gal, who has repeatedly danced in her section and made memorable surprised faces during award shows. The band Haim, which consists of sisters Este, Danielle, and Alana, will also be seated directly behind her. (The trio are headed on tour with Swift this summer and have been palling around with Swift on many an Instagram snap.) The “Shake It Off” singer is up for multiple nominations at the Grammys, and will also be presenting.
One person Swift won’t be celebrating with is former pal Perry. Fresh off her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, the “Roar” singer — nominated for two awards — will be mingling front row with Prince. Other seat neighbors include Sam Smith (whom she sat next to at the 2014 VMAs), Jennifer Hudson, and Ryan Adams. Mandy Moore’s ex-husband has a spot behind country super couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.
Another power duo, Kanye West and Kardashian, will similarly be rubbing shoulders with a close friend. The couple are tentatively set to sit in front of Chrissy Teigen’s husband John Legend. The foursome recently dropped by a Waffle House during Super Bowl weekend. Their seat buddies include Mary J. Blige, and newcomer Charli XCX. Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, and Chris Martin are a few seats down.
As for Queen Bey? She and husband Jay Z will be crossing paths with Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Stevie Wonder, Ryan Tedder, and Annie Lennox — who dissed the “Drunk in Love” singer back in September 2014. At the time, Lennox called Beyonce a “feminist lite” and said her sexy performances were “cheap.”
Other tidbits: Adam Levine and supermodel wife Behati Prinsloo have a spot next to his fellow Voice judge Gwen Stefani, Chris Brown and Usher are close to Dierks Bentley, and Hunter Hayes will be near…Gwyneth Paltrow!
The 2015 Grammy Awards will be hosted by LL Cool J and air live at 8 p.m. EST on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 8. Tell Us: Will you be watching the ceremony?
