The 60th annual Grammy Awards are popping off this evening in New York at the Madison Square Garden. Tonight’s event will be hosted by comedian James Corden, with live performances from the likes of Pink, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, and Little Big Town. We can also expect collaborated performances from Bruno Mars and Cardi B as well as iconic musician Elton John with Miley Cyrus.
Tonight’s celebration will consists of honoring entertainment couple Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys with the prestigious Producers & Engineers Wing Award. Others being celebrated are Jay-Z who is leading his peers with 8 nominations, and Kendrick Lamar on his heels with 7. Bruno Mars is holding his own with 6 nominations, and SZA, Khalid, and No I.D. are tied with 5 apiece.
Tonight’s award show is themed with the Time’s Up initiative, and with that said, we can expect celebrities to appear accented with white roses on the red carpet as well as throughout the evening. The white rose symbolizes support not to just sit silent regarding discrimination, harassment, and abuse at the workplace or any other platform of opportunity.
The show airs live tonight on CBS at 7:30est, so make sure to circle-back to see tonight’s winners, as well as who came in what on the carpet.
