Hosted for the second straight year by 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys, excitement has been building with an all-star lineup set to perform including Aerosmith, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Demi Lovato, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Many awards have already been handed out in the Premiere Ceremony earlier today.
There will also be a quickly assembled tribute to Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant who with his daughter Gianna was killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in nearby Calabasas. Bryant played his Lakers home games at Staples Center.
There also is tribute planned for late rapper Nipsey Hussle featuring Kirk Franklin, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Meek Mill and more.
Viewers may tune in as well to find out if the scandal dogging the Grammys for the past week and a half, after Recording Academy president and CEO Deborah Dugan was placed on administrative leave January 16, will be mentioned on the show. She has since filed discrimination and sexual harassment complaints with the EEOC.
