Grammy Awards 2018: 5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Miss This Show

868

Less than two weeks are left until the 60th Grammy Awards.

Nexter.org gathered most important reasons why you should watch the ceremony.

Lineup

Finally, the Recording Academy announced the full list of artist to perform at the Grammy Awards. Among the artists were newcomers – Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith, and U2. They were added to the list just recently.

Also, Miley Cyrus will join Elton John to perform one of his hits (which was not specified in the announcement), two days before “Elton John: I’m Still Standing—A GRAMMY Salute,” a tribute concert where John and his longtime writing partner, Bernie Taupin, will receive the Recording Academy President’s Merit Award, according to Variety.

Kendrick Lamar

Yes, it’s true. Kendrick Lamar is in the lineup. In 2016, Kendrick Lamar destroyed the stage at the Grammy Awards with a (somewhat literally) fiery showcase before going home with trophies for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Collaboration, and Best Rap Album.

We’ll see how many awards he get this time. Anyway, we still will enjoy his performance that will most likely feature from standouts from Damn.—or maybe a tease for his work on the Black Panthers soundtrack.

The host

This year the ceremony will be hosted by James Corden, so be ready to laugh a lot! Corden won over America’s heart as the charismatic host of The Late Late Show with James Corden, but his musical sensibility and gorgeous voice are undeniable. Often out-singing his guests on Carpool Karaoke, Corden has a set of pipes all his own. Not to mention, he’s been here before. Corden previously hosted the 2017 Grammys and it was really wonderful.

The dominance of rap and R&B

As Nexter.org wrote before, this year the dominance of rap, R&B and Latin pop is strongly felt. It shows the 8 nominations of JAY-Z, who together with Beyonce who was titled as the world’s highest-paid women in 2017, can be named as the most successful -couple. He’s followed by Kendrick Lamar, whose “DAMN.” album scored seven; Bruno Mars with six; and Childish Gambino (aka actor Donald Glover), newcomers SZA and Khalid, and producer No I.D. (who worked on “4:44”) with five each.

Less Ed Sheeran

Well, for those who got tired from Ed Sheeran’s songs that literally were everywhere this Grammy limited the Ginger Idol to single-genre competition with nods for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance.
