It's been a groundbreaking year for music—and with the 65th Annual Grammy Awards just around the corner, we're likely soon to witness a handful of disruptive wins.
Now that the Grammys have expanded the number of nominees from the traditional five to 10 total slots for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist, you can bet on double the nominated artists and, inevitably, double the tension ahead of the winning announcements.
Music's Biggest Night will take place Sunday, February 5, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, following last year's event in Las Vegas and its remote setting the year prior at the height of COVID-19.
Ahead, see all the details surrounding the 2023 Grammys, including all the likely winners and how you can tune in.
Who is presenting?
Olivia Rodrigo, Cardi B, and Shania Twain will be this year's presenters, the Recording Academy announced Wednesday.
And joining them will be first lady Jill Biden, James Corden, Viola Davis, Dwayne Johnson, and Billy Crystal.
Who is hosting?
For a third consecutive time, The Daily Show's longtime host Trevor Noah will return as the ceremony's host.
"I don't think it's normal to host it once, so I don't have a great frame of reference for this. It is thrilling," he said of his Grammys return in a recent interview with Billboard. "For me, it's a cheat code because I'm a fan of almost all the people who are there."
Who are the anticipated winners?
Nominations this year have been by and large historic. Anticipated winners include Bad Bunny and Beyoncé, who broke all-time records this year with their nominations.
The "Me Porto Bonito" singer's 2022 studio album, Un Verano Sin Ti, became the first all-Spanish album to receive a nod for Album of the Year. Meanwhile, Beyoncé's whopping nine Grammy nods this year put her at a total of 88 career nominations, tied with Jay-Z for the most Grammy nominations for any artist in history.
Other artists leading the pack of nominees include Kendrick Lamar and Adele, whose works from their studio albums, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers and 30, each earned them eight and seven respective nominations, including for Album of the Year.
Running close behind them is Harry Styles, who received six nominations—including for Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Music Video, and Record of the Year—thanks to tracks from his third studio album, Harry's House.
Rapper Jack Harlow additionally received several big nods of his own, including Best Melodic Rap Performance for his viral song "First Class," as well as Best Rap Album for Come Home the Kids Miss You.
Who is performing?
Harry Styles, Lizzo, Bad Bunny, and Sam Smith are the performers confirmed so far for this year's ceremony.
Styles and Bad Bunny are leading the list of nominees, and Lizzo has been nominated in five categories including for Song of the Year, thanks to her viral hit "About Damn Time," which she will likely take to the Grammys stage. Meanwhile, Smith, who received a nod for Pop Duo/Group Performance, is reportedly set to perform "Unholy" alongside Kim Petras.
Other artists officially set to take the stage this year include "Bad Habit" singer Steve Lacy, as well a s Mary J. Blige, Brandi Carlile, and Luke Combs. DJ Khaled will also lead a performance where he'll be joined by Fridayy, Jay-Z, John Legend, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross, for a rendition of their nominated track "God Did."
