BTS & Taylor Swift Among 22 Artists Set to Perform on 2021 Grammy Awards.
Half of the acts on the show, including Bad Bunny, Megan Thee Stallion & Harry Styles, are going to be making their Grammy telecast performance debuts.
The Grammys, like most awards shows, usually trickle out performer announcements, but the Recording Academy decided this year to announce them in one fell swoop. Artists set to perform on the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on March 14 include Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Taylor Swift, who were among the year’s top nominees, with six nods each.
So far, the year’s top nominee with nine nods, Beyoncé, isn’t slated to perform.
Other performers set for Music’s Biggest Night are Bad Bunny, Black Pumas, Cardi B, BTS, Brandi Carlile, DaBaby, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Mickey Guyton, Haim, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Lil Baby, Chris Martin, John Mayer, Megan Thee Stallion, Maren Morris, Post Malone and Harry Styles.
Hosted by Trevor Noah, the show are going to be held at the l. a. Convention Center and its surroundings. All performances will emanate from there, though the Grammys will make use of other venues for the reading of nominations and announcement of winners in various categories.
This will be Swift’s seventh performance on the Grammy telecast and her first in five years. She is widely expected to win album of the year for the third time together with her hit album Folklore.
This will be the sixth performance for both Martin (counting Coldplay) and Mayer; the fifth for Lambert; the third for Cardi B and Morris; and therefore the second for Carlile, Eilish, Howard, Lipa and Post Malone.

Aiko are going to be hosting (but not performing on) the Premiere Ceremony that afternoon, where the overwhelming majority of Grammys are presented. (Album of the year nominee Coldplay isn’t performing, but the band’s lead singer is.)
All of the record of the year nominees are set to perform except Beyoncé, who is nominated for both her socially conscious solo hit “Black Parade” and “Savage,” her Hot 100-topping collab with Megan Thee Stallion.
Even though Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, are among the highest nominees and winners in Grammy history, they haven’t been especially successful within the celebrated “Big Four” categories — album, record and song of the year plus best new artist.
Beyoncé won song of the year 11 years ago for “Single Ladies (Put a hoop On It),” but that’s the sole win in these marquee categories for music’s top couple.
This year, Beyoncé features a good chance of winning both record of the year (for “Savage”) and song of the year (for “Black Parade”).lecast performance
