Cardi B, Bruno Mars and SZA to Perform at the 2018 Grammy Awards
Already, it was announced that Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) will be performing—he's also up for five awards for his psychedelic album, Awaken, My Love! As for Cardi and Bruno, they're both listed as performers, though it hasn't been said that they'll perform their jamming new remix to "Finesse" (they probably will).
SZA, who is up for five Grammys— the most by a woman— will hit the stage as well, and has a slew of hits she can pick from, including "The Weekend" and "Supermodel," which have been her late night TV go-to faves.
This year, the Grammys look to be dominated by hip-hop and R&B. JAY-Z leads all artists with eight nominations, while Kendrick Lamar follows right behind him with seven. Bruno Mars is up for six awards.
This is also the first time since 1999 that no white men were nominated for Album of Year. JAY-Z's 4:44, Kendrick Lamar's critically-acclaimed album, DAMN., Childish Gambino's psychedelic funk album, Awake My Love! and Bruno Mars' nostalgically energetic 24K Magic are all deservedly up for Album of the Year alongside Lorde's Melodrama.
With this year's performance line-up, the Grammy Awards just got another needed boost.
