Music’s biggest night, THE 58th ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS will be broadcast from Los Angeles’ Staple Centre live and first on FOX8 on Monday February 15 at 12.00pm.
Hosted by two-time GRAMMY Award winner LL Cool J for the fifth time, the event will feature a showstopping performance by ten time GRAMMY winner Adele who, after a two year absence from the GRAMMY’s stage, is expected to perform her triple platinum worldwide hit Hello.
Musician of the moment Kendrick Lamar, who has scored the most GRAMMY nominations of the year with a total of eleven including the highly coveted categories of Album of the Year for To Pimp a Butterfly and Song of the Year for Alright, will join A-list music superstars The Weekend, Ellie Goulding, James Bay, Sam Hunt and Tori Kelly live on stage, belting out their biggest hits of the last year.

Three massive musical tributes have been scheduled to acknowledge three iconic music legends who have recently passed. Multiple GRAMMY winner Lady Gaga will perform a medley of David Bowie’s biggest hits; Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper’s supergroup will pay tribute to Lemmy Kilmister; and Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt will honour the late B.B. King, who died last May at the age of 89.
