What to watch out for
The Grammys may technically be an awards show, but if we're being honest most people aren't watching for that part. The real draw is the promise of some epic performances. This year's slate of performers is quite a lineup and includes Lady Gaga, P!nk, Childish Gambino, Little Big Town, Sting, Emmylou Harris and Chris Stapleton, Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B and Bruno Mars, SZA, Kesha, Logic, Alessia Cara, and Khalid. Jon Batiste and Gary Clark Jr. are also set to perform a tribute to Fats Domino and Chuck Berry while Eric Church, Maren Morris, and Brothers Osborne are expected to sing in honor of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
As for the awards themselves, here's a look at who's nominated for some of the biggest ones:
Record of the Year: Childish Gambino (Redbone), Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber (Despacito), JAY-Z (The Story of O.J.), Kendrick Lamar (HUMBLE), Bruno Mars (24K Magic).
