The Recording Academy has announced the 65th Annual Grammy Awards’ first wave of performers. Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, and Steve Lacy feature in the ceremony’s the star-studded lineup, as do Lizzo, Kim Petras, Sam Smith, Brandi Carlile, and Luke Combs.
The 2023 Grammys will take place on Sunday, February 5 at 8 p.m. EST at the Crypto.com Arena (previously known as the Staples Center) in Los Angeles, California. Hosted by Trevor Noah for the third year in a row, the event will stream live on CBS and free online for Paramount+ subscribers.
All of the 2023 ceremony’s announced performers are nominated for at least one Grammy this year. Bad Bunny is nominated for three, including Album of the Year (Un Verano Sin Ti is the first all-Spanish-language LP to be nominated in the Grammys’ most coveted category). Blige also earned an AOTY tap for Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe). Lacy is nominated four times — three for his ultra-viral hit “Bad Habit” alone. Lizzo has five chances to win an award this year, Carlile has seven, Combs has three, and Petras and Smith’s joint track “Unholy” is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
