Grammy Awards 2019: Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, Shawn Mendes to perform

The Grammy Awards are correcting course from last year when few female artists were invited to perform and spotlighting a lineup including Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, Camila Cabello and Cardi B.

They’ll be joined by Shawn Mendes, Dan + Shay and Post Malone, with many more live acts to be announced.

As previously reported, Alicia Keys will host the 61st annual ceremony when it airs live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10 (the show airs at 8 p.m. on CBS). 

Every artist announced as a performer is nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, while Cabello and Mendes are taking the Grammy stage for the first time in their careers.
