EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS YEAR'S GRAMMYS

Hey, did you hear? It's almost Grammy time. So, let's recap, shall we? The 59th Annual Grammy Awards are happening this Sunday (2/12). Where do you watch? Who's performing? Who's nominated? Who are the frontrunners? Don't worry. We have all the answers. Deep breaths, buddy. Deeeeeeep breaths.

Music's Biggest Night—hosted by James Corden for the first time—will air live from L.A.'s Staples Center on CBS at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

Today, The Recording Academy announced plans to honor two-time Grammy winner George Michael and seven-time Grammy winner Prince with two tribute segments. Details—including who will participate in each segment—have not yet been shared, though.

So far, the evening's announced performers include Adele, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, who's apparently performing a new song, "Chained to the Rhythm." Chance the Rapper, who's up for seven awards (including Best New Artist, and two for his feature on Kanye West’s “Ultralightbeam”) will make his Grammy performance debut. Sturgill Simpson, whose A Sailor’s Guide to Earth is up for Album of the Year, is also scheduled to perform.


The Weeknd will undoubtedly start a party with the help of Daft Punk, Lady Gaga will perform with Metallica, Alicia Keys will duet with Maren Morris, A Tribe Called Quest is partnering with Anderson .PaakCarrie Underwood and Keith Urban are set to perform together and Gary Clark Jr. and William Bell have teamed up.

Kelsea Ballerini and Lukas Graham will also have their moments in the spotlight when they make their Grammy stage debuts.

John Legend and nominee Cynthia Erivo will pay tribute to members of the music community who passed last year.

And then there's Demi Lovato, Little Big Town, Tori Kelly and Andra Day, who have joined forces to honor the music of the Bee Gees and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever.

A full list of nominees can be found here. That said, HITS Editor in Chief Lenny Beer and Grammy Whisperer Paul Grein recently discussed the artists they believe are most likely to win in 25 key categories. Their opinions can be found here.

Remember, when it comes to the labels, Columbia leads the pack with a whopping 32 nominations.

At press time, execs from every corner of the biz have begun to descend on Southern California. Ready, set, weasel!
