Bestinau got that-
Lady Gaga has joined the lineup for this year’s Grammy Awards, which take place Sunday night in Las Vegas, the Recording Academy and CBS announced this morning. The 12-time Grammy winner has a further five awards this year, including two of the top categories, Record of the Year and Album of the Year, for her duets with Tony Bennett on the song “I Get a Kick Out of You’ and the album it came from, ‘Love for Sale’.
The album is the couple’s second collection of duets, who performed a song from the first, “Cheek to Cheek,” at the Grammys in 2014. Bennett, 95, suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and was not announced as a performer with Gaga. † he played two concerts with Gaga in August at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, which aired last year in a CBS special “One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.”
More from Variety
She joins a lineup that includes Olivia Rodrigo, BTS, Billie Eilish, Silk Sonic, Brandi Carlile, Lil Nas X with Jack Harlow, Jon Batiste, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, J Balvin with Maria Becerra, HER, Nas, Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne, and a special In Memoriam performance featuring songs by Stephen Sondheim by Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt, and Rachel Zegler. The show will also pay special tribute to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died last week at age 50 while the band was touring South America.
The show will also highlight three musical genres – gospel/Christian, tropical Latin and bluegrass – that are not traditionally part of the show, presumably as bumpers leading to commercial breaks. The list of artists that will appear in that format are Maverick City Music, Aymée Nuviola and Billy Strings respectively. Maverick City Music has been nominated in the gospel and Christian music categories. Nuviola is up for a tropical Latin album, while Strings is a contender for American roots and bluegrass album honors.
Hosted again by Trevor Noah, the Grammys will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
