The Grammy-nominated performer roster includes Camila Cabello, Janelle Monae, Cardi B, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Dan + Shay, and Kacey Musgraves. Alicia Keys will host the live ceremony, which is being held at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California on Feb. 10. The star-studded event will air at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
Camila Cabello’s performance will mark her first-ever live Grammy Award show performance. She’s notably up for Best Pop Vocal Album this year for her chart-topping eponymous studio album debut. She’s also nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Havana (Live).”
Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae and Post Malone are notably competing for Album of the Year. The “Black Panther” soundtrack also scored an Album of the Year nomination. If it wins, it will join the ranks of only four other soundtracks in history that have snagged the high honor.
“O Brother Where Art Thou” won most recently in 2002. “Saturday Night Fever” and “The Bodyguard” each won in 1979 and 1994, respectively, with The Music of Peter Gun being the first-ever soundtrack to win Album of the Year in 1959.
The Grammy Awards ceremony returns to Los Angeles in 2019 and the four main categories are expanded to include eight nominees (up from five in previous years). Shawn Mendes is up for Song of the Year for “In My Blood” and competes against Cabello for Best Pop Vocal Album for his self-titled debut.
The spectacular music performances are a huge part of what makes the Grammy Awards such a special night. Huge superstars and multiple Grammy winners like Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Elton John have all dazzled audiences from the Grammy stage.
