The 2018 Grammy Awards are fast approaching (catch the show Sunday, January 28) and we’re starting to get a pretty good idea of everyone who will perform. After the initial announcements, I wondered if the Grammys might be flirting with wokeness—whether it’s performative or for real, that’s a conversation for another day—based on their selections (re: less white dudes.) It appears they’ve pushed back to the status quo: U2, crooner Sam Smith, Elton John, and Miley Cyrus are joining in on the fun, but also Kendrick Lamar, who’s up for seven Grammys.


As is always the case, you can never be sure if every name on the list below will have the stage to themselves or be forced into some awkward Grammy Moment collaboration. (I could easily see U2 and Kendrick getting mashed together—they’re buds now.)

We’ll continue to update this post as more performers are announced, or if any of them get paired up before the awards at the end of the month. For now, here’s everyone scheduled to hit the Grammy stage:

  • Kendrick Lamar, U2, and Dave Chappelle
  • Sam Smith
  • Elton John with Miley Cyrus
  • Bruno Mars and Cardi B
  • Lady Gaga
  • Kesha with Camila Cabello, Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, and Andra Day
  • SZA
  • Pink
  • Childish Gambino
  • Little Big Town
  • Logic, Khalid, and Alessia Cara
  • Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee
  • Patti LuPone and Ben Platt
  • Eric Church, Maren Morris, and Brothers Osbourne
  • Rihanna, DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller
