Bruno Mars & Cardi B, SZA and More Announced to Perform at GRAMMYs

Bruno Mars & Cardi B, SZA and More Announced to Perform at GRAMMYs”

This year, it returns to New York City, at Madison Square Garden.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee were among the performers named Wednesday by the Recording Academy. Logic, Alessia Cara and Khalid are also set to perform.

What do we know about the performances? As for Cardi and Bruno, they're both listed as performers, though it hasn't been said that they'll perform their jamming new remix to "Finesse" (they probably will).

Khalid will take the stage with singer-songwriter Alessia Cara and rapper Logic for a special performance, joined by suicide attempt and loss survivors selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline organization. Their collaboration "1-800-273-8255" is up for Song of the Year and Best Music Video. As a way to honor that move, the producers will offer tributes to two Broadway legends: composer Leonard Bernstein, who wrote the music for West Side Story (Ben Platt, the Emmy-winning star of Dean Evan Hansen, will sing a number from the musical) and the prolific composer Andrew Lloyd Weber (Patti LuPone, who starred in Webber's Evita on Broadway, will unleash her iconic version of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina").

"I can not wait to perform a handsome West Side Story treat", Platt tweeted.

Even if you aren't a fan of Bruno Mars, you had to have seen his show-stopping 2017 Grammys performance; that man can perform his ass off, and even if Cardi wasn't there, his segment would be one of the best to watch.

Presenters have yet to be announced for the Grammys.

What else should I know?

Already, it was announced that Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) will be performing-he's also up for five awards for his psychedelic album, Awaken, My Love!

Hosted by James Corden, the 60th Annual Grammy Awards is set to air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on January 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

JAY-Z and Kendrick Lamar lead the Grammy nominees this year with eight and seven, respectively.
