This year’s ceremony will be held this Sunday (February 10) at The Staples Center in LA, with Kendrick Lamar heading up the nominations with eight nods. Alicia Keys will host proceedings.
More details about the ceremony are coming to the light in the few days left ahead of the 2019 Grammys, with the Academy now confirming a number of live performances.
St. Vincent, who is nominated for Best Rock Song (‘Masseduction’) and Best Alternative Music Album, will team up with Lipa (who is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording) for the very first time – although details about their live performance, including what song(s) they might play, have yet to be confirmed.
Other new additions to the live performers bill at this year’s Grammys include Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson – who are likely to play a cut from the soundtrack to A Star Is Born – as well as Travis Scott and Chloe x Halle.
The trio of Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honour the late Aretha Franklin with a special live performance.
These artists join a swelling live line-up for the 2019 Grammys, which already includes Cardi B, Janelle Monáe and a collaborative performance from Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Last month, St. Vincent performed a live cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ ‘Breakin’ The Girl’ at a benefit concert for the victims of last year’s Woolsey wildfires in California.
