Every year, the Grammys Awards are home to some of the biggest and best live performances you’ll see on TV, and this year is no different. Some of the biggest names in music will be there, and that includes several of our favorite queer artists.
The Recording Academy announced the first slate of artists who will be performing, and it includes names like BTS, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo, with more artists being announced later on!
The Grammys are taking place Sunday, April 3 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on CBS. You can also stream them live and on demand on Paramount+. Check out a list of this year’s queer nominees who will be performing at the ceremony below.
Brandi Carlile has already won six Grammys, and this year is nominated for five more. Her song “Right On Time” was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year. She also picked up nods for Best American Roots Performance, and another Song of the Year entry for “A Beautiful Noise” with Alicia Keys.
The genre-hopping rapper and singer already has two Grammys on his shelf and is hoping to pick up more at this year’s ceremony. He’s up for Record and Song of the Year, as well as Best Music Video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Industry Baby,” and Album of the Year. He’ll be performing with Jack Harlow, who featured on the song “Industry Baby.”
The Brothers Osborne have never won a Grammy, but before this year, had been nominated seven times. Now, in their first Grammys ceremony since T.J. Osborne publicly came out, they’re up for two more. They’re nominated in the Best Country Album category as well as in Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
