The 2020 Grammy Awards will be a stage full of firsts.
On Wednesday (January 8), the Recording Academy announced the first batch of performers for the 62nd annual award show and it’ll feature debut Grammy performances from nominee favorites Billie Eilish and Lizzo. Meanwhile, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani will also perform as a couple for the first time together. 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year® Aerosmith will also be at the ceremony to perform a medley of their biggest hits.
Alicia Keys is also back to reprise her role as host for the 62nd ceremony, becoming the third woman after Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O’Donnell to lead the Grammys more than once. “At first, I did think last year was a one-time thing, but when the opportunity came back around, there was no question about returning as host,” the 15-time Grammy winner told Billboard in a statement. “Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love in the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music.”
Stay tuned for even more performers when the 2020 Grammy Awards airs live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on CBS on January 26 at 8 PM ET!
