Who’s Performing at the 2023 Grammy Awards? Here’s Your Guide

At a certain point in the year, the various events that come together to form Award Show Season (or, as I like to think of it, Drink Wine and Ogle Celebrity Fashion Season) begin to blend together. (What are the WGAs, and how are they different from the DGAs and the PGAs?) Yet the Grammys stand alone as a night when you don’t only get to see your favorite singers be honored, but you also get to watch them perform, lending the night a special aura of excitement even for those of us watching from our couches.

The question of who will take the stage at Los Angeles’s Crypto.com Arena for the 2023 Grammy Awards has been hotly debated, but we finally have an answer (or, at least, a partial one). It was announced on January 25 that Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Steve Lacy, Lizzo, Kim Petras, and Sam Smith would all perform at the award show, which is scheduled to take place on February 5 starting at 8 p.m. EST. 

And that’s not all. A few days later, none other than Harry Styles was added to the roster; and the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood, and Bonnie Raitt were tapped for the show’s In Memoriam segment. (Loretta Lynn, Christine McVie, and Takeoff will all receive special tributes.) Then, the Grammys announced that this year’s show would honor the 50th anniversary of hip-hop with an all-star performance including Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, Salt-N-Pepa, Future, GloRilla, Nelly, Ice-T, Lil Baby, Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash, RUN-DMC, Rakim, and more. Another rap legend, Jay-Z, will also take the stage with DJ Khaled, Fridayy, John Legend, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross to perform “God Did,” Khaled’s contender for song of the year; and speaking of legends—Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, and country star Chris Stapleton are all due to share the stage on Sunday night, too.

Of course, a good Grammys broadcast is nothing without a few surprises, so it’s entirely possible that the lineup will shift (see the full list of nominees here). One thing’s for sure, though: This year’s Grammys will rival the Rihanna-fronted Super Bowl halftime show for sheer musical entertainment value, so make sure to tune in.
