The 2020 Grammy Awards are fast approaching and details about the ceremony are starting to be revealed in the lead-up to the big show, happening January 26 at the Staples Center in LA.
In a news release, the Recording Academy just announced a couple of exciting new additions to the performers lineup for the big night including Tyler, the Creator, whose IGOR is up for Best Rap Album; Rosalía, who is nominated for Best New Artist and also in the Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album category for her El mal querer; and Run-DMC, who will join Aerosmith on stage to perform their pioneering rap-rock collab, “Walk This Way.” The Gap Band’s Charlie Wilson will also be part of that performance.
Other new additions include Camila Cabello, H.E.R., Jonas Brothers, and Bonnie Raitt (doing a John Prine tribute). They will join previously announced performers Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, and more. Alicia Keys will play host again as she did last year.
This also represents the first year the Grammys are going to be held the last week of January. Starting this year. the Academy Awards ceremony will move back to the second Sunday of February, forcing the Grammys to move back to the last Sunday of January to avoid a conflict with either the Oscars or the Super Bowl on the first Sunday in February.
The Grammys will be airing on CBS on Sunday, January 26 at starting at 8pm EST.
