James Corden is set to host the 59th annual awards show. The Late Late Show host, who is best known for his beloved Carpool Karaoke segment, will take over hosting duties from LL Cool J, who carried the ceremony for the past five years. “I am truly honored to be hosting the Grammys next year,” Corden said in a press release last November. “It’s the biggest, most prestigious award show in music and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night.”
Beyoncé, Adele, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Metallica, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, A Tribe Called Quest, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, Little Big Town and Ed Sheeran are among the many musicians who are scheduled to take the stage on Sunday night.
The Recording Academy has also announced plans to honor the late Prince and George Michael with tribute segments and performances, but additional details have yet to be revealed.
Gaga teased her duet with Metallica on Instagram the night before the Grammys, writing, “Gonna listen to Metallica all day and party with my friends and then play with them at the Grammy’s. #MetalliGa.”
Presenters for the night include a wide range of the music industry and Hollywood’s biggest names, including Camila Cabello, The Chainsmokers, Kelly Clarkson, Laverne Cox, Jason Derulo, Celine Dion, DNCE, Halsey, Taraji P. Henson, Paris Jackson, Nick Jonas, Solange Knowles, Katharine McPhee, Pentatonix, Thomas Rhett, Gina Rodriguez, Ryan Seacrest and John Travolta.
Beyoncé leads this year’s list with nine nominations for her acclaimed visual album Lemonade. She will face off against Adele, who has five nods, in major categories such as Album of the Year (Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Adele’s 25), Song of the Year (Beyoncé’s “Formation,” Adele’s “Hello”) and Record of the Year (“Formation,” “Hello”). Exes Drake and Rihanna follow close behind Queen Bey with eight nominations each, thanks mostly to their collaboration “Work.” Chance the Rapper, meanwhile, made Grammy history with seven nods — five of them for his stream-only mixtape Coloring Book — marking the first year the Recording Academy has included digital-only releases.
