The news was announced on Sunday evening during the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills game, which aired on CBS — the network home of the Grammys live broadcast. The announcement was also then posted on the GRAMMY.com site.
Burna Boy, Travis Scott, Luke Combs, Olivia Rodrigo, Dua Lipa, and Billie Eilish will be taking the stage at Los Angeles’s Crypto.com Arena during the awards ceremony on February 4, along with additional acts still to be announced by The Recording Academy “in the coming weeks.” 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. Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo hold six nods each, including two in the Big Four categories 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.
