2024 Grammy Awards–
Excitement is in the air as the 66th Grammy Awards are poised to take place at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles this Sunday. With women taking the lead in major categories, the spotlight will shine on female nominees, a trend Grammys executive producers Ben Winston and Raj Kapoor are eager to celebrate.
Comedian Trevor Noah will take the stage as host for the fourth consecutive year, while the Grammys promise more than just an awards ceremony – it doubles as a concert featuring the biggest names in the music industry. The main show will be broadcast live on CBS and Paramount+ at 8 p.m. Eastern, with additional coverage provided by E! in its “Live From E!: Countdown to the Grammys” show starting at 6 p.m. Eastern.
SZA emerges as the lead contender with nine nominations, closely followed by Victoria Monét and Phoebe Bridgers with seven each. Notably, the soundtrack of the hit film “Barbie” secures 11 nominations, dominating the visual media song category.
History-making opportunities abound, with the possibility of a Black woman winning Album of the Year for the first time since 1999. Taylor Swift, with a potential Album of the Year win, could set a new record with four victories. The youngest Grammy winner might be Victoria Monét’s 2-year-old daughter if Monét’s “Hollywood” clinches Best Traditional R&B Performance.
The star-studded lineup includes the first-ever Grammys performance from Joni Mitchell, along with appearances by Grammy winners and nominees Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lipa, Burna Boy, Luke Combs, and Travis Scott. As the music world eagerly awaits, the 66th Grammy Awards promise a night of history-making, memorable moments, and outstanding performances.
