The 62nd annual Grammy awards are happening tonight, and this year’s awards show promises to bring you the most star-studded musical performances of the year. Musicians, artists, and producers from across the music industry will gather to honor the achievements and outstanding performers from this past year.
Don’t take our word for it though. Check out these 5 reasons to watch the Grammys awards and see for yourself.
1. The Inclusivity
This year’s awards show features the most diverse set of nominees and entertainers ever, from Lizzo to Lil’ Nas X. In 2020, representation matters. There is nothing more empowering than seeing someone like yourself win an award for their creativity and talent.
The nominees come from across a spectrum of backgrounds, giving this year’s show a resounding message of positivity.
2. The Host
This year marks a new milestone for the Grammy awards – the talented Alicia Keys, a previous Grammy award winner herself for her 2002 album, is set to host the show for the second year in a row. This marks the first time in Grammy history that a female has hosted twice. Tune in to see Alicia Keys in action as she brings her brand of grace and charm back to the stage.
3. The Tribute
The spirit of the show may be positive and uplifting, but this year was a tough year for the music industry. Rapper, activist, and community staple Nipsey Hussle passed away in early 2019. Look for a tribute to the late rapper, who’s nominated for two posthumous awards, from the industry’s best and brightest talent.
4. The Record of the Year Category
If the entire tone of the Awards is marked by a theme of diversity, there is no better example than the record of the year category. Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Bon Iver, H.E.R., Lil’ Nas X, Khalid, and Billie Eilish all vie for top honors. Click here to check out the complete list of nominees for your favorite categories.
5. The Performances
Lizzo, Tyler the Creator, Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande return to the Grammy stage. This year’s list of performers reads like your favorite playlist. But there’s no performance more highly anticipated than Lil’ Nas X. If the rumors turn out to be true, he will be joined onstage by BTS and Billy Ray Cyrus.

From the performers to the nominees, the host to the tributes, and the spirit of representation throughout the show, the Grammy awards has something for everyone! Tune in to the 62nd Annual Awards show tonight (Sunday, January 26th) and experience the talent, artistry, and emotion for yourself!
