Every year, without fail, the GRAMMY nominations are announced and people start passionately discussing on Twitter whether or not the GRAMMYs are even relevant in this day and age. We're not here to convince you one way or another, but we ARE here to tell you that we'll be tuning in and live-tweeting. Here's why you should join us: 

  1. Alicia Keys is the host. Need we say more? She played the festival back in 2008, and we're big fans!
  2. The performances are stacked. Here's what you can expect from the night:
    • Performances throughout the show from Aerosmith, Ariana Grande, Ben Platt, Billie Eilish, Billy Ray Cyrus, Blake Shelton, Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, BTS, Camila Cabello, Charlie Wilson, Common, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Allen, Demi Lovato, Diplo, DJ Khaled, Gary Clark Jr., Gwen Stefani, H.E.R., John Legend, Jonas Brothers, Joshua Bell, Kirk Franklin, Lang Lang, Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Mason Ramsey, Meek Mill, Misty Copeland, Roddy Ricch, Rosalía, Run DMC, Tanya Tucker, and Tyler, the Creator, War and Treaty, YG and other surprise guests
  3. We want to join the conversation! No doubt about it, people will be talking about the results on Monday. "Did you get shivers from that knock out vocal performance? Can you believe that outfit so-and-so had on?  Can you believe that artist XYZ got snubbed?" No matter the conversation, we want to see it first hand.
  4. We love music, and live-tweeting is fun. It's a chance for us to engage in the music industry, keep a pulse on what's happening and hear from you about who YOU are excited about. You never know. Some of these nominated artists may show up on the 2020 lineup.
