Complete list of Grammy performers in 2020

The Grammy Awards honor the year’s best music — and what better way to do it than to put on a killer show?

Kicking off Sunday, Jan. 26, the 2020 Grammys are basically a dream festival lineup stacked with performances from the crème de la crème across all genres of music.

And it just keeps getting better.

Performers at the 2020 Grammys include newcomers such as Lizzo and Billie Eilish — both nominated for the top four awards — who will join legends including Bonnie Raitt, Aerosmith, Run-DMC and more at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Ahead of the show, which airs live on ABC starting at 8 p.m. EST, here’s everything you need to know about the performers who will rock onstage.

1. Billie Eilish

She may not know who Van Halen is, but 18-year-old Eilish is a force to be reckoned with as pop music’s prized pony. The first-time Grammy nominee has six nominations for her first go, including Record of the Year (“Bad Guy”), Album of the Year (“When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”), Song of the Year (“Bad Guy”), Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance (“Bad Guy”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (“When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”). The Los Angeles native first shot to fame in 2016 when she uploaded the song “Ocean Eyes” on SoundCloud. The singer who rocks a neon green mullet is rumored to have a whopping $25 million contract for a documentary with Apple TV+.

2. Aerosmith

Aerosmith is slated to perform a medley of their hits during the ceremony. And given that they started making music together in 1970, we’re betting this is going to be a greatest hits revue not to be missed. The band — which includes Steven Tyler (71, vocals and piano), Joe Perry (69, lead guitar), Brad Whitford (67, guitar), Joey Kramer (69, drums), Tom Hamilton (68, bass) and Ray Tabano (73, rhythm guitar) — will also be named the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year, which honors the musical and philanthropic achievements of the honoree each year. The band has been nominated 14 times throughout their career and has won four times, most recently in 1999. Currently, Aerosmith has a residency at MGM in Las Vegas. As for music, Perry said in 2019 that the band will make new music “when the time is right.”

3. Lizzo

2019 was truly the year of Lizzo — and she’s rocking straight into 2020. The singer, 31, led the pack with the most Grammy nominations with a total of eight, despite being a first-time nominee. She’s up for Record of the Year (“Truth Hurts”), Album of the Year (“Cuz I Love You [Deluxe]”), Song of the Year (“Truth Hurts”), Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance (“Truth Hurts”), Best R&B Performance (“Exactly How I Feel”), Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Jerome”) and Best Urban Contemporary Album (“Cuz I Love You [Deluxe]”). Get ready to see her whip out her flute — and maybe even her bottom. She’s a leader in the body positivity movement and known to show off her booty. She’s also slated to play at the Tennessee-based Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this year.

4. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani

Power couple performance alert! Real-life dynamic duo Stefani, 50, and Shelton, 43, are set to perform their new duet, “Nobody But You,” released in December. If the lyrics of the love song are any indication, get ready for some major PDA. The country crooner and the No Doubt front lady are no strangers to showing their affection since they started dating in late 2015. This also isn’t their first duet. The “Voice” coaches collaborated in 2016 on “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” and the following year for “You Make It Feel Like Christmas.” Stefani split from Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale in 2015 while Shelton divorced country star Miranda Lambert that same year. Between the two of them, they have a total of 26 nominations (18 for Stefani and eight for Shelton) and Stefani has won three times. Shelton is up for one award this year, Best Country Solo Performance for “God’s Country.”

5. Ariana Grande

Consider this a make-up for last year. Grande bailed on her 2019 Grammy performance days before the show, reportedly because she and producers couldn’t decide on a song, but she ended up winning an award anyway — her first — despite being a no-show. This year, she’s nominated for five awards including Record of the Year (“7 Rings”), Album of the Year (“Thank u, Next”), Best Pop Solo Performance (“7 Rings”), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Boyfriend” with Social House) and Best Pop Vocal Album (“Thank u, Next”). The 26-year-old is fresh off of her nine-month “Sweetener”/”Thank U, Next” World Tour and has a live album of the tour set to come out soon.

5. Demi Lovato

The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, 27, revealed she was added to the list on Jan. 14, telling fans her promise to return to the stage was kept. Lovato has two career nominations, her first for Best Pop Vocal Album for “Confident” in 2016, the same year she made her Grammy stage debut during a group tribute performance to 2016 MusiCares Person of the Year, Lionel Richie. She has not dropped a new single since “Sober” in June 2018.

6. Camila Cabello

The brothers — 32, 30 and 27, respectively — made waves when they returned to the charts with “Sucker,” and they’re nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the track. They’ve had two career nominations — could this be their first Grammy win?

10. Bonnie Raitt

The legendary Bonnie Raitt will honor Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award-winner John Prine during the 2020 Grammys, according to country music blog the Boot. “I think ‘Angel From Montgomery’ probably has meant more to my fans and my body of work than any other song, and it will historically be considered one of the most important ones I’ve ever recorded,” Raitt has said of the Prine original song.
