Bruno Mars, Cardi B, SZA, Kesha, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee to Perform at Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards have announced more performers for the forthcoming 60th annual Grammy Awards: current nominees Bruno Mars with Cardi B;  SZA, Kesha, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, and Alessia Cara, Khalid and Logic, who together will take the stage with a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in a special performance, presumably of their suicide-awareness song “1-800-273-8255.” Similarly, Mars and Cardi B are likely to perform the remixed version of “Finesse,” which dropped last week along with a ’90-centric video paying homage to the TV show “In Living Color.”

Previously announced performers include Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Patti LuPone, Pink and Ben Platt.

The show, which takes place live from Madison Square Garden in New York, will be hosted by James Corden and broadcast live on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT.

First-time nominee Alessia Cara has four nominations this year: Best New Artist, Song Of The Year and Best Music Video (“1-800-273-8255”); and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Stay” with Zedd).

Cardi B currently has two nominations: Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song (“Bodak Yellow”).

Current three-time Grammy nominees Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee are up for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Despacito” featuring Justin Bieber).

Performing on the Grammy stage for the first time, Kesha earned two nominations this year: Best Pop Solo Performance (“Praying”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (Rainbow).

Five-time nominee Khalid is up for Best New Artist, Song Of The Year, and Best Music Video (“1-800-273-8255”); Best R&B Song (“Location”); and Best Urban Contemporary Album (American Teen).
