Grammy Awards 2018 performers: Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith, U2 added


The musical stylings of Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith and U2 will be on display during the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Jan. 28.

The trio joins a lineup of previously announced performers including Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Bruno Mars, Pink, SZA, Childish Gambino, Logic, Luis Fonsi, Cardi B, and, in a nod to the show’s return to New York, Patti LuPone and Ben Platt.

As well, Miley Cyrus will pair with Elton John to perform one of John’s classics; two days after the Grammys, John will be honored at “Elton John: I’m Still Standing – A Grammy Salute,” where he and songwriting partner Bernie Taupin will receive the Recording Academy’s Merit Award.

The Grammys will air live from Madison Square Garden at 7:30 p.m. on CBS.
