In less than three weeks, the biggest acts in music will gather together for the 60th annual Grammy Awards and the Recording Academy just beefed up their performance roster for the night with the addition of acts like Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and more.
While Bruno and Bardi will bring their remix of "Finesse" to the James Corden hosted-show, nominees Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee will hit the stage and likely perform their blockbuster duet, "Despacito" as per an announcement on Wednesday (January 10). Additional performers include Kesha and SZA. Plans for a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors to join Logic, Alessia Cara and Khalid for a special performance of "1-800-273-8255" were also announced for the ceremony, which goes down Sunday (January 28) at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Previously announced performers include Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga, and Little Big Town P!NK. In addition to those performances, there will be a couple of special sets scheduled for the historic night in music. Patti LuPone will reprise her famed 1981 Grammy performance of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina," while Ben Platt will perform a classic from West Side Story as part of a tribute honoring the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein. Platt is nominated for his work on the musical album, Dear Evan Hansen.
The 60th annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on January 28 on CBS at 7:30 PM ET.
