This year’s performers at the 64th annual Grammy Awards have been announced. Olivia Rodrigo, Brothers Osborne, Billie Eilish, BTS, Lil Nas X with Jack Harlow, and Brandi Carlile are slated to take the stage on April 3 in Las Vegas.
Last year, BTS performed their hit “Dynamite” and Billy Ray Cyrus joined Lil Nas X for “Old Town Road (Remix).” Carlile performed “The Joke” back in 2019.
Eilish, who is returning to perform for the third time, could be the first artist in Grammy history to win Record of the Year three years in a row if she snags the award this year for “Happier Than Ever.” She previously took home the award for “bad guy” and “Everything I Wanted.”
Brothers Osborne, which will perform for the first time this year, are nominated for “Younger Me.” Another first-time Grammy performer, Rodrigo, is nominated for “Driver’s License” and “good 4 u.” Carlile is nominated for both Record and Song of the Year (as she was last year) for “Right on Time,” and for her other works “A Beautiful Noise” and “Same Devil.” For the second year in a row, BTS received a nod for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, this year for “Butter.” Lil Nas X may take home Record of the Year or Song of the Year for “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).” He and Harlow will probably perform “Industry Baby,” which received a nomination for Best Melodic Rap Performance.
There was a long-standing Grammy policy that artists could only perform current nominated works, but the Academy recently uplifted that restriction.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards will broadcast live at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 3 via CBS. You can also stream the event live and on-demand on Paramount+. The event is set to take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, marking the first year the Awards will be hosted in a city outside of Los Angeles, New York, or Nashville.
