Red Hot Chili Peppers, Post-Malone, Brandi Carlile, and H.E.R, are will take the stage at the Grammy Awards. According to a report from Just Jared, the aforementioned artists will perform at this year’s ceremony, the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, which airs on the 10th of February, 2019.
The multiple-award winner, Alicia Keys, will take the hosting spot. Post Malone, or Austin Richard Post, is nominated to take home four accolades this year. HER and Brandi Carlile are also set to take some home this year as well.
It was revealed earlier in 2019 that Dan and Shay, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, and Cardi B, were all set to perform at the 2019 ceremony. Thankfully, the Grammys haven’t found themselves in trouble in the same way as the Academy.
As it was reported previously, the Oscars have been scrambling to find a person to host this year’s ceremony, following Kevin Hart’s refusal to host. Outlets and Twitter users dug through Kevin’s Twitter account to find old tweets in which he made homophobic jokes.
In one tweet, Kevin suggested that he would be furious if one of his sons were to come home one day and want to play with dollhouses and other traditionally effeminate toys.
Due to Kevin already addressing those controversial jokes once before in the past, Kevin took to his social media to defend himself, saying that those who are upset are merely looking for things to be offended about. Later on, he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he said the attacks on him were just that, malicious and malevolent.
It hasn’t been quite as challenging to find a host for the Grammys, but people have been clamoring hard for a person of color to host. There’s no question, however, that fans this year will be upset by their favorite performer not getting the award they thought they deserved.
Other stars in talks for receiving an accolade include Weezer, Drake, Bad Bunny and Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar and SZA, and several others.
