Four days before the 2023 Grammy Awards, it appears that the attendance for Music’s Biggest Night is increasing.
Following weeks of speculation, Hits Daily Double reports that all three big stars – Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Adele – will attend the Grammys on Sunday, February 5, 2023, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California.
According to the outlet, The Recording Academy has been meeting at the Four Seasons and Polo Lounge to plan the upcoming Grammy Week festivities.
According to rumors, the three major music artists will attend the show. Adele confirmed her attendance last week after rumors of her withdrawal from the show resurfaced.
Meanwhile, neither a Beyonce nor a Taylor Swift and Adele performance has been confirmed. Everyone appears to be waiting for The Recording Academy’s official confirmation in an announcement in the coming days.
According to the outlet, negotiations for the three, or any of the three, to perform on the show are still ongoing. The Recording Academy must secure at least one of the three, if not all because their viewership has been declining since three years ago.
Aside from their presence, Hits Daily Double reported that Beyonce would win at least one category, possibly one or more of the Big Four. Beyonce is the night’s most nominated artist.
“Renaissance” is up for Album of the Year as well as Best Dance/Electronic Music Album. The album’s lead single, “Break My Soul,” is nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Dance/Electronic Music Recording. Meanwhile, “Cuff It” has been nominated for Best R&B Song, “Plastic off the Sofa” has been nominated for Best Traditional R&B Performance, “Virgo’s Groove” has been nominated for Best R&B Performance, and “Be Alive” has been nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media.
It’s also worth noting that Beyonce’s “Renaissance” tour dates were only recently announced, so a spectacular live performance at the Grammys could help the tour, not that it needed it in the first place.
According to sources close to the scene, LL Cool J may perform alongside hip-hop icons such as the Sugarhill Gang, Kurtis Blow, and Grandmaster Flash, who is set to reunite with the remaining Furious Five members, minus Kid Creole.
DJ Khaled is also expected to perform alongside Fridayy, John Legend, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and JAY-Z. A Dr. Dre performance is also planned.
