music: Bruno Mars & Cardi B, Kesha, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee to Perform at 2018 Grammys
Music's biggest night just got even bigger, as more performers were announced Wednesday (Jan. 10). Bruno Mars and Cardi B will bring their remix of "Finesse" to the Grammy stage when the 60th Annual awards come back to New York City on Sunday Jan. 28.
Along with Bruno and Cardi, the Recording Academy revealed that 2018 Grammy nominees Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, Kesha, and SZA will also join the roster. In addition, Alessia Cara, Khalid and Logic will team up for a performance, taking the stage with a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors in a special performance of "1-800-273-8255."
Previously announced performers include Childish Gambino, Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Patti LuPone, P!nk, and Ben Platt.
Mars, who is the third most nominated artist of the night after JAY Z and Kendrick Lamar, has earned six nominations including album of the year and best R&B album for 24K Magic as well as record of the year for "24K Magic" and song of the year for "That's What I Like." Cardi B, who will make her Grammy debut this year, received two nods for "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" (best rap performance and best rap song).
Another Grammy first-timer, SZA, has five nominations this year: best new artist, best R&B performance ("The Weekend"), best R&B song ("Supermodel"), best urban contemporary album (CTRL), and best rap/sung performance ("Love Galore") -- making her 2018's most Grammy nominated female with five nods.
Kesha also earned her first-ever Grammy nominations this year, with two nominations for best pop solo performance ("Praying") and best pop vocal album (Rainbow). Current three-time Grammy nominees Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee are up for record of the year, song of the year, and best pop duo/group performance ("Despacito" featuring Justin Bieber) after winning big at the Latin Grammys back in November 2017.
