There are two reasons we’re tuning into the Grammy Awards, and their names are Beyoncé and Adele.
The music megastars are facing off once again Sunday for album, record and song of the year, after Adele’s controversial sweep of all three categories in 2017. As we eagerly await the winners, there will also be some performances, with Harry Styles, Lizzo, Sam Smith and Brandi Carlile all slated to take the stage at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena.

Brandi Carlile, ‘Broken Horses’
After a sweet introduction from her wife, Catherine Shepherd, and two daughters, the Americana singer gave a blazing performance of her “In These Silent Days” single. With just strobe lights and a backing band, Carlile let her thrilling voice do the heavy lifting – unleashing a truly incendiary guitar solo mid-song and earning a standing ovation from Taylor Swift.

The Puerto Rican rapper proved why he’s one of the biggest stars in the world right now with his vibrant, infectious opening number. Flanked by dancers, brass players and giant-sized puppets of Puerto Rican icons Tego Calderón and Andy Montañez, Bad Bunny paraded to the stage, where a red curtain lifted and revealed a stunning sunset backdrop, complete with palm trees and bongo drummers. The singer, clad in a baseball cap and jeans, proceeded to get the entire audience on its feet, with artists including Jack Harlow and Mary J. Blige dancing along.
