The 58th Annual Grammy Awards just announced several cool collaborations featuring several Grammy newcomers, including nominees James Bay and Tori Kelly; nominees Andra Day and Ellie Goulding; and nominee Sam Hunt will join seven-time Grammy winner and current nominee Carrie Underwood. James Bay is up for three Grammys — Best New Artist, Best Rock Song for “Hold Back The River,” and Best Rock Album for Chaos And The Calm. Andra Day is nominated for two awards — Best R&B Performance for “Rise Up” and Best R&B Album for Cheers To The Fall; Ellie Goulding is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Love Me Like You Do,” and the song is also up for Best Song Written For Visual Media. Sam Hunt is up for Best New Artist and Best Country Album for Montevallo and Tori Kelly is also nominated for Best New Artist. Carrie Underwood is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for “Little Toy Guns.” Commenting on this amazing opportunity, Bay said “I’ve had a lot of unbelievable moments in the past year, but I genuinely didn’t expect I’d get to add ‘performing at The Grammys’ to the list. Not only that, but I get to share the stage with Tori Kelly, one of the greatest new voices in music.”
They join previously announced performers Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town and The Weeknd. The show will also feature a special tribute to 2016 MusiCares® Person of the Year Lionel Richie. Additional performers will be announced shortly. The 58th Annual Grammy Awards® are hosted by LL Cool J and will be broadcast LIVE on Monday, February 15 at 5pm PT/8pm ET on CBS.
