6 Reasons To Be Very Excited For The 2016 Grammy Awards

You guys, it’s Grammy time! This is arguably the best award show of the season. There’s crazy fashion, adorable kids and Taylor Swift dancing. This year’s show promises to be a good time with performances by Adele, The Weeknd and Justin Bieber plus Kendrick Lamar and Carrie Underwood will be among the many, many stars in attendance. Here are 6 things to look out for at the 58th annual Grammy Awards, taking place Monday, February 15th at 8 pm EST on CBS!

1) Lady Gaga’s David Bowie tribute

Lady Gaga is set to perform a tribute to the late David Bowie. Not many details have been released about the performance. However, it will be directed by Nile Rodgers, a Bowie collaborator who produced that artist’s best-selling album, Let’s Dance. Also, Grammy producer Ken Ehlrich says the tribute will honor Bowie’s musical contributions, as well as his “influence on fashion and pop culture in a broader way.”

2) The T-Swift squad

Love ’em or hate ’em, Taylor Swift’s “squad” is likely to be in attendance since “Bad Blood” is nominated for Best Music Video. Selena Gomez is already confirmed to perform. We’re placing bets that Gigi Hadid will also be there since you can’t turn left without seeing her somewhere.

3) Gwen Stefani’s live music video

So, we’re not really sure how this is going to work, but Gwen Stefani is filming a music video for her new song, “Make Me Like You,” during the Grammys. According to Entertainment Weekly, the singer is “collaborating with Target to produce the first ever live music video during a commercial break from Monday’s Grammy ceremony.” So, we guess it won’t air during the ceremony. However, fans will be able to follow along on Snapchat, Facebook and Periscope. The video will debut on Vevo late Monday night. We’re sure more details on which specific accounts to follow will be announced during the show.

4) Earth, Wind & Fire and Run-DMC lifetime achievement award

Two excellent musical acts are receiving lifetime achievement awards this year. Let’s revisit some of their best songs:



5) Rihanna performing ‘Work’ for the first time

This is Rihanna’s first performance from her new album ANTI, which was released last month! Ehlrich tells Entertainment Weekly, “There is certain news value to having an artist do something that’s never been seen anywhere. You know, if I don’t do Rihanna’s new song, it’ll be done 43 times before it comes up in the cue again next year. So, I’m open to things like that. This year there are a couple things that we are going do that do fit that mold.” Smart move.

Also, Drake is featured on this song. According to my Drake-sense (aka, after doing my daily catch-up on all things Drizzy), he is not expected to be at the Grammys. *Prays he will surprise us all*

UPDATE: Rihanna cancelled her Grammys performance shortly before the show due to bronchitis. A rep for the singer told Us Weekly, “Based on Rihanna’s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna’s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords.” She was noticeably missing on the red carpet, and, as we all know, RiRi loves to make an entrance. We should’ve known something was up then.

6) The Hamilton cast appearance

In case you live under a rock, the Broadway show Hamilton is a BFD. Tickets for the show are sold out through 2016. The cast is scheduled to perform the show’s opening number live via satellite from the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City. If you have been living under a rock, the show features hip-hop music. Not what you expected, amirite?
