The show will also pay tribute to independent music venues that have been severely impacted by the pandemic.
“From bartenders to box office managers, those who work day-to-day at the Troubadour (Los Angeles), the Hotel Café (Los Angeles), the Apollo Theater (New York City), and the Station Inn (Nashville) will present various categories throughout the night,” the Recording Academy said.
The March 14 ceremony was originally scheduled to air from the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, with Trevor Noah hosting. But as the coronavirus pandemic continues, the show was rescheduled with Noah on board to host the now mostly-remote 2021 broadcast.
Beyoncé is the top nominee this year, with nine nods including record of the year. Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Taylor Swift follow closely behind with six nominations each.
The 63rd annual Grammy Awards air Sunday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.
Before the show gets underway, a Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony will begin streaming live at noon PT, via Grammy.com.
Hosted by current three-time Grammy nominee Jhené Aiko, the Premiere Ceremony will feature a number of performances by current nominees, including: Nigerian singer, songwriter and rapper Burna Boy, jazz band Terri Lyne Carrington + Social Science, blues musician Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, classical pianist Igor Levit, Latin electropop musician Lido Pimienta, singer, songwriter and performance artist Poppy, and singer, songwriter and composer Rufus Wainwright.
