Corden won't sing as Grammy host

13 February, 2017, 01:05 | Author: Kristopher Anderson

In her previous Grammy appearances, Lady Gaga has collaborated with Tony Bennett and Elton John as well as Nile Rodgers for her David Bowie tribute a year ago.

Jonathan Barnbrook won the Grammy for best recording package for his artwork on Bowie's album Blackstar.

Beyonce is competing head on with Britain's Adele, the only other artist to be nominated for all three top awards - album, song and record of the year - for her comeback release "25". Apple and Spotify have solidified themselves as the future of the business, and the biggest award show, despite its sluggish pace at times, is adapting to keep up. The Grammy Awards will air live tonight from 8PM ET to 11:30PM ET on CBS, and will be streamed online through CBS All Access, which requires a subscription that starts at $5.99 a month. Also leading this year's nomination list, Beyonce might just create history if she wins more than six awards in one night-breaking Adele's (2012) and her own (2010) record.

Grammy Awards host James Corden admits he's a little nervous about taking the stage. So in case you don't have access to cable, here's how to stream the 2017 Grammy Awards to help guarantee you don't miss out on a moment of all the fun.

All set to take place at Staples Center, Los Angeles, Grammy Awards 2017 promises to be mixed bag of big names, controversies, performances and some pleasant changes.

The air in the building wasn't sucked out by Parker's injury in the third quarter - it hadn't been there at the opening tap. The latest injury occurred on the same night that guard Khris Middleton returned from a hamstring injury.

The Grammys are unlike any other award show in that it celebrates the work of its nominees more than it likes to reward them. Additionally, Chance The Rapper is pegged at -350 as the favorite to win Best New Artist. I was probably watching in 1971 when "Bridge Over Troubled Water" won Best Song, Record and Album with almost a clean sweep.

As for the night's performances, you can look for major collaborations.

Sheeran, a two-time Grammy victor, joins this year's previously announced crop of Grammy performers, including Lady Gaga, Metallica, Adele, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, and Carrie Underwood.

The LA ceremony will also see tribute segments to George Michael and Prince, who both also died a year ago. Prior to his five Blackstar nods, he received a total of 12 Grammy nominations throughout his five-decade career.
