Just because you can’t attend live—much like Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce—that doesn’t mean you need to miss out on music’s biggest night. The 66th annual Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 4, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, with Trevor Noah hosting for his fourth consecutive year. Nominees include SZA, Phoebe Bridgers, Jon Batiste, and lots more.Viewers will want to tune in to see Joni Mitchell, 80, perform for her very first time at the Grammys. She’s also nominated for Best Folk Album for Joni Mitchell at Newport. Many thought Mitchell would never be able to grace a stage again after suffering an aneurysm and other health issues in 2015.The rest of the line-up promises to be just as impressive. Billy Joel will perform “Turn the Lights Back On,” his first single in nearly 20 years. Younger generations will appreciate turns from Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, and Burna Boy.Other historic milestones worth watching for: If Billie Eilish wins Best Record of the Year for “What Was I Made For,” she would become one of only three artists to win this award three times, joining Paul Simon and Bruno Mars—which also would make her the first female solo artist in the three-timers club. And Swifties will be holding their breath to see if Taylor wins her fourth Album of the Year, breaking the tie she holds with Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, and Frank Sinatra. Midnights would give her the most-ever wins in the Grammy’s most prestigious award category.
