Lady Gaga to perform at the Grammys for fifth year in a row
The Recording Academy announced Wednesday Mother Monster — a five-time nominee this year — will debut her fifth consecutive Grammy Awards performance at the organization’s 61st annual ceremony this weekend.
Gaga has performed during every Grammys telecast since 2015, including a Tony Bennett duet, a Nile Rodgers-assisted David Bowie tribute, a hard-rocking Metallica collaboration, and a stripped, piano-driven performance of her 2018 single (and 2019 Grammy-nominated tune) “Joanne.”
The Academy’s announcement did not indicate which song (or songs) Gaga would perform as part of her set, though it’s likely she will sing her Oscar-nominated smash “Shallow” from A Star is Born, which is nominated this year for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
The Recording Academy further announced that Travis Scott, Chloe x Halle, Fantasia, Andra Day, Dua Lipa, St. Vincent, and frequent Gaga collaborator (and fellow nominee for co-writing their “Shallow”) Mark Ronson have joined Sunday’s lineup of performers.
Previously announced performers set to sing during the event include Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Post Malone, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monáe, Dan +Shay, and Diana Ross, while Katy Perry will join Maren Morris and Little Big Town for a Dolly Parton tribute.
The 61st Grammy Awards — hosted by Alicia Keys — will air Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
