My, how time flies — the 59th Annual Grammy Awards are right around the corner! This year’s ceremony will take place on Sunday (Feb. 12) at L.A.’s Staples Center and, in case you’re in need of all the pertinent details regarding the event, you’ve come to the right place.
James Corden will be taking a break from his “Late Late Show” hosting duties to helm the ceremony, which will air live at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on CBS.
“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.”
Who wants to bet he’ll be working his famous Carpool Karaoke bit into the festivities?
The night is set to be packed with performances by some of the biggest names in the industry today: Beyonce, Adele, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Little Big Town and A Tribe Called Quest are just a small handful of the epic list of artists set to take the stage. The Recording Academy has yet to release any further details, but keep your eyes peeled — musical tributes have been planned to honor both Prince and George Michael.
So, who will walk away with big wins this year?
Straight from her Internet-breaking pregnancy announcement, Beyonce leads the pack with nine nominations for “Lemonade.” Drake and Rihanna are a close second, each with eight nods. Adele comes in with five noms — which includes Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Record of the Year. But let’s not forget Chance the Rapper, who has made Grammy history with seven nominations — five of which are for his digital mixtape “Coloring Book” — this is the first time the Academy has recognized such a release.
Don’t have a cable subscription? Don’t fret — the 2017 Grammys will also be streamed live on CBS’ website, exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers. The service offers one-week free trials, so now is the perfect time to sign up.
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will air Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
