The STAPLES Center in Los Angeles is about to get lit – with stars coming together to celebrate the 61st GRAMMY Awards!


Check out who we’ll be seeing onstage at the biggest night in music.



At the helm of the awards show is 15-time GRAMMY winner Alicia Keys as the night’s master of ceremonies.


“This is my first time. I am thrilled!” she told ET in an interview last month. “It’s a little bit of a second home to me. And I feel so blessed to be able to be coming now, just in support of so many amazing people that are honored — especially so many women that are [going to be] honored — and are gonna be celebrated that night.”



Who’s ready for an evening of great music?  GRAMMY nominees, awardees and winners will be taking the stage to provide the night’s entertainment.


In her GRAMMY performance debut, Camila Cabello will be kicking off the evening – alongside J Balvin and Young Thug, as well as GRAMMY winners Ricky Martin and Arturo Sandoval. Brandi Carlile, H.E.R. will likewise be making their GRAMMY performance debut on Sunday. Lady Gaga will be taking the stage for the fifth-year in a row.
