The Recording Academy has made a slew of lineup additions to Sunday’s Grammy awards, including performers Silk Sonic, Billy Strings, John Legend, and more. These acts and a host of others will perform at the Grammys on Sunday from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
Also featured in the third round of lineup additions are Carrie Underwood, J Balvin with Maria Becerra, Maverick City Music, and Aymée Nuviola. Maverick City Music, Aymée Nuviola, and Billy Strings will all perform special segments highlighting Las Vegas, the 2022 home for the Grammys after the awards were postponed from January in Los Angeles.
These new acts join the previously announced list of Grammy performers Jon Batiste, Brothers Osborne, BTS, Brandi Carlile, Billie Eilish, H.E.R., Lil Nas X with Jack Harlow, Nas, Olivia Rodrigo, and Chris Stapleton. Sunday’s ceremony will also include an In Memoriam performance dedicated to Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim performed by Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt, and Rachel Zegler.
Foo Fighters were due to perform at Sunday’s Grammys, but have since canceled all tour dates in the wake of drummer Taylor Hawkins‘ death on Friday. The band is up for “Best Rock Song” for “Waiting On A War” off 2021’s Medicine At Midnight. According to Variety, the awards will also feature a tribute to Hawkins, who passed away at age 50 in Columbia.
“We will honor his memory in some way. We want to figure out what is the right thing to do that is respectful to everyone involved,” Jack Sussman, CBS’ executive vice president of specials, music, and live events told Variety. “We’re patient. We’ll be planning right up until the very end.”
It was also confirmed that Lady Gaga will perform at Sunday’s ceremony. The 12-time Grammy winner is up for five nominations this year for her second duet album with Tony Bennett, Love For Sale. The 95-year-old crooner revealed his Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis last year and was not included in the lineup announcement.
Comedian Trevor Noah will host the Grammys for the second year in a row on Sunday, April 3rd in Las Vegas. The awards will air on CBS and stream live on Paramount+. For a full list of nominees head here.
