It’s been a historic year for music, and the 65th Grammy Awards are right around the corner, so there will probably be a few unexpected winners.
You can count on twice as many nominated musicians and, consequently, twice as much suspense leading up to the Grammy Awards’ announcement of the winners because the Grammys have increased the number of nominees for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist from the customary five to a total of 10 positions. Following the remote location of Music’s Biggest Night the year before at the height of COVID-19 and the event’s location in Las Vegas last year, Music’s Biggest Night will take place on Sunday, February 5, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

Who is making the presentation?
The Recording Academy revealed on Wednesday who will host this year’s Grammy Awards: Olivia Rodrigo, Cardi B, and Shania Twain. First lady Jill Biden, James Corden, Viola Davis, Dwayne Johnson, and Billy Crystal will all be there.
Who is hosting?
For a third consecutive time, The Daily Show‘s longtime host Trevor Noah will return as the ceremony’s host. “I don’t think it’s normal to host it once, so I don’t have a great frame of reference for this. It is thrilling,” he spoke about his Grammys comeback in a recent Billboard interview. “For me, it’s a cheat code because I’m a fan of almost all the people who are there.”
Who do you think will win?
This year’s nominations have generally been historic. Bad Bunny and Beyoncé, who this year’s nominees set all-time records, are expected to win. Un Verano Sin Ti, the 2022 studio album by the “Me Porto Bonito” vocalist, became the first entirely Spanish album to be nominated for Album of the Year. Beyoncé, who received a record-breaking nine Grammy nominations this year, now has a total of 88 nominations in her career. She is tied with Jay-Z for the most Grammy nominations of any artist in Grammy history with 88.
Kendrick Lamar and Adele are two other musicians who are leading the nominations; their studio albums, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers and 30, respectively, got them eight and seven nods, including for Album of the Year.
Harry Styles, who got six nominations—including for Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Music Video, and Record of the Year—as a result of the songs on his third studio album, Harry’s House, is following closely after them. Rapper Jack Harlow also garnered a number of significant nominations of his own, including Best Melodic Rap Performance for his popular song “First Class” and Best Rap Album for Come Home the Kids Miss You.
Who is performing?
The artists who have been confirmed thus far for this year’s ceremony are Sam Smith, Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Bad Bunny.
Lizzo has been nominated in five categories, including Song of the Year, thanks to her viral smash “About Damn Time,” which she will probably perform on the Grammys stage. Styles and Bad Bunny are at the top of the list of candidates. Smith, who was nominated for Pop Duo/Group Performance, would allegedly perform “Unholy” with Kim Petras. Other performers that have been confirmed to perform this year include Luke Combs, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, and “Bad Habit” singer Steve Lacy.
