Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, HAIM, Megan Thee Stallion, Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, DaBaby, Dua Lipa, Post Malone, and more have been announced as performers at the 2021 Grammy Awards. The Recording Academy dropped the news today (March 7), stating in a press release that “artists will be coming together, while still safely apart, to play music for each other as a community and celebrate the music that unites us all.”

This year’s Grammys ceremony takes place Sunday, March 14, and will also include performances by Black Pumas, BTS, Brandi Carlile, Doja Cat, Mickey Guyton, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Lil Baby, Chris Martin, John Mayer, Maren Morris, and Roddy Ricch.

Trevor Noah is set to host the ceremony, which was postponed from its usual late January date until mid-March due to concerns over COVID-19 spread in Los Angeles. Lido Pimienta, Burna Boy, Rufus Wainwright, and Poppy were among those announced as performers for the Grammys Premiere Ceremony with host Jhené Aiko.
