The countdown for this year's Grammys is officially on, and the list of confirmed Grammys 2024 performers is rolling in.
On January 29, 2024, the Recording Academy announced that SZA, the most nominated artist at this year's Grammys, would be performing during the live broadcast of the 66th annual awards. The Grammy Awards previously announced that Burna Boy (with 21 Savage and Brandy), Travis Scott, Luke Combs with iconic singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Joni Mitchell and Brandi Carlile, Olivia Rodrigo, Billy Joel, and U2 would also be taking the stage as 2024 performers.
SZA and company will be taking the stage at Los Angeles's Crypto.com Arena during the awards ceremony on February 4. (Fun fact: Nigerian superstar Burna Boy will make history as the first Afro-fusion artist to perform on the Grammy main stage.)
The artists joining the performers slate shouldn’t come as a surprise if you take a quick peek at the Grammys 2024 nominees list. As previously noted, SZA is the most nominated artist at this year's Grammys, leading with a total of nine nominations for her critically acclaimed sophomore album SOS. The singer is nominated in three of the Big Four categories — Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year — as well as being recognized in the pop, R&B, and rap areas.
Other performers Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo hold six nods each, including two in the Big Four buckets Record of the Year and Song of the Year; Burna Boy is up for four awards, including noms in the Best Global Music Album category and the Best African Music Performance category, a new addition to this year's awards; Luke Combs is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for his cover of Tracy Chapman's “Fast Car”; Travis Scott is in the running for Best Rap Album; and Dua Lipa is up for two big awards: Best Song Written for Visual Media for Barbie’s “Dance The Night” as well as the coveted Song of the Year.
This year’s Grammys will once again be hosted by Emmy-winning comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, who is also nominated for Best Comedy Album at the 2024 awards.
Who else will take on performance slots at the Grammys 2024? We won't have to wait too long to find out, as the Grammys are set to air on Sunday, February 4, 2024 — but until then, getting familiar with the nominations list for strong guesses seems like our best bet.
