The Stereotypes

 

Early predictions placed Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar at the forefront. Kesha’s reinvention, Lady Gaga’s raw Joanne, and did Taylor Swift make the cut, are all among the questionable fan considerations that were surfacing in the weeks leading up the reveal. 

 

For the first time since their 45th edition in 2003, The GRAMMYs make their return to New York City’s Madison Square Garden. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by James Corden for a second consecutive year. 

 

The 60th GRAMMY Awards air live from The Garden on Sunday, January 28 on CBS at 8pm EST.
