How To Watch The 2024 Grammys: Performers, Nominees


This year’s Grammy Awards will be a little bit different. For the first time in, well, probably forever, the majority of the award’s nominees are women, specifically young women. SZA leads the pack with nine nominations, while a slew of female artists including Phoebe Bridgers, Victoria Monét, Billie Eilish, Boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and Olivia Rodrigo, follow close behind with seven or six nominations. The discrepancy is even greater in the major category Record of the Year: Out of the eight albums nominated, only one of them belongs to a man (Jon Batiste’s Worship).

It’s clear now more than ever that music is a woman’s world, and granted, while we found some of the nominations to be pretty predictable, this is still a major shifting moment for the award show. And so far, the ceremony’s highly anticipated roster of performers doesn’t disappoint: The first round of musicians are three of the biggest pop stars of the moment: Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, and Olivia Rodrigo. This year’s ceremony will also feature its most expanded set of genres this year as they introduce three new categories: Best African Music Performance, Best Alternative Jazz Album, and Best Pop Dance Recording.

The 66th annual Grammy Awards kicks off Sunday, Feb. 4, with comedian Trevor Noah returning as host for the fourth year in a row. Below, find everything you can expect from music’s biggest night including the list of performers, presenters, and how you can stream.

Seven-time Grammy award winner Billie Eilish, who will likely be performing her Barbie mega-hit, “What Was I Made For?” (with which she’s already picked up a Golden Globe this award season). Impressively, the song netted the pop star six Grammy nominations this year, including in major categories Record of the Year and Song of the Year, despite the fact she didn’t put out an album.

Dua Lipa, who’s up for two awards this year, in categories Song of the Year and Best Song Written For Visual Media, also for her Barbie song, “Dance The Night.”

And, Olivia Rodrigo, who ties Eilish with a whopping six Grammys nominations this year for her sophomore album GUTS. Rodrigo is up for three of the four major awards of the night: Album of the Year (GUTS), Record of the Year (“vampire”), and Song of the Year (“vampire”).
