The 58th GRAMMY Awards are almost here! On Monday night the biggest names in music will gather at the Staples Center in LA, with LL Cool J once again acting as host, to celebrate what has been an amazing 12 months!
Here are some of the superstars you can expect to see at this year’s ceremony:
Following on from her 1989 World Tour there was never any doubt that Tay Tay would feature heavily this year. Not only has she been nominated for SEVEN awards including Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘1989’ and Best Music Video for ‘Bad Blood’, but it was also confirmed this week that she will be returning to the GRAMMY’s stage to act as the opening performer!
History will be made!
The fabulous Gwen Stefani will be making music history on Monday as she will be filming the video for her new single ‘Make Me Like You’ LIVE during a four minute commercial break! We hope it all goes to plan and can’t wait to see the finished result!
Ellie has come a long way since she released ‘Lights’ back in 2010 and this year sees her perform at the GRAMMYs for the first time. Ellie will be singing ‘Love Me Like You Do’, which was used for the ’50 Shades of Grey’ soundtrack and has also brought her a nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.
Ellie has said she’s nervous about the prospect of performing on Monday night, but if the reviews from her Delirium World Tour are anything to go by, she’ll be nothing short of mesmerizing!

Possibly THE BEST tribute ever?!
John Legend, Meghan Trainor, Luke Bryan and Demi Lovato are joining forces to perform a tribute to one of our all time favourites, Lionel Richie, who has been announced as MusiCares’ Person of the Year!
We can’t wait to see the performance and with a catalog including ‘Dancing On The Ceiling’, ‘Hello’, ‘Easy’, ‘All Night Long’ and ‘Say You Say Me’, we’re sure it’s going to be one to remember. Maybe Lionel will even join in?!

The Brits representing!
Ellie Goulding isn’t the only amazing British artist representing on Monday! Adele has been confirmed as a performer while Ed Sheeran has four nominations to his name including Record Of The Year for ‘Thinking Out Loud’!
James Bay, who is due to start his residency at London’s Eventim Apollo next month, is up for Best New Artist while Florence + The Machine and Mark Ronson are up against each other for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance AND Best Pop Vocal Album. Plus, Sam Smith will be presenting an award! Go Team GB!
When Skrillex and Diple with Justin Bieber dropped ‘Where Are Ü Now’ last year, the world once again went Bieber crazy. When he released his album ‘Purpose’ and announced news of the Purpose World Tour? Bieber Fever officially broke out and it was announced this week that he’ll be performing on Monday!
Peter, Stewie & Brian Griffin
Okay, not quite. But Seth MacFarlane is presenting an award. We can only hope that he will do so in character!
And with that wonderful image of Peter Griffin channeling his inner Madonna, we’ll leave you to enjoy the 58th GRAMMY Awards on Monday. Don’t forget to tweet us with your thoughts @eventim_uk !
