Music’s biggest night has officially arrived, and the industry’s brightest stars are now descending upon Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles for the 66th annual Grammy Awards.
The show, once again hosted by Trevor Noah, is set to celebrate some of the biggest eligible albums including Taylor Swift’s “Midnights,” Boygenius’ “The Record,” and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Guts.” It will also feature performances from music legends Billy Joel, U2, and Joni Mitchell, who is making her Grammys debut as part of her recent comeback following recovery from the brain aneurism she suffered in 2015.

Ludwig Göransson won the Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for his “Oppenheimer” score, beating out two John Williams scores and his own work on “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” He’s also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Score for his work on the Christopher Nolan film.
“No Time to Die” Oscar winners Billie Eilish and Finneas are nominated in several categories for their hit song “What Was I Made For?” from “Barbie.” They won the Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media, and the song will compete for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance later in the night. The sibling songwriters are also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song for their contribution to Greta Gerwig’s film. They’ll go up against another “Barbie” song, Mark Ronson’s “I’m Just Ken,” on Oscar night.
