5 Ways to Follow Grammy News on Flipboard
Inside Flipboard / February 11, 2017
The music industry’s most glossy awards show airs Sunday night from the Staples Center in L.A. This year’s nominees include everyone from stalwarts like Barbra Streisand to upstarts like Maren Morris, but the real showdown is going to be Adele v Beyoncé. (Ding! ding!) The two powerhouses are nominated in the three biggest categories—song, record, and album of the year—for their beloved albums, 25, and Lemonade, respectively.
Best new artist is another category watched with high interest. Vanity Fair’s headline pretty much captures the feeling: “Praying for the Best, Preparing for the Chainsmokers.” The electronic darlings had one of the most popular songs of 2016 but breakout stars like Chance the Rapper and Anderson.Paak are the critics’ darlings.
James Corden hosts and performers include stadium-level acts and supercharged collaborations, such as Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Adele, The Weeknd and Daft Punk (their first performance in three years), Lady Gaga and Metallica, Sturgill Simpson, Bruno Mars (with Prince’s side project, The Time), and many more.
Here’s how to follow who’s jamming on Sunday:
