Today is the big day! The 66th Annual Grammy Awards aka the 2024 Grammys airs tonight, so you might want to clear your schedule for the latter half of the day. Tonight's the night we find out which top music artists will go home with gold-plated gramophone trophies. A lot of amazing artists were nominated this year, but who will leave the award ceremony with their hands full?
Nominations were announced back in November 2023 with popular singer-songwriter SZA snagging the most nominations of anyone nominated this year, with nine nominations in total. Coming in with the second-highest nominations were artists such as Victoria Monét, Phoebe Bridgers, and Serban Ghenea, who all had seven each. And this is just a small portion of the music artists nominated this year.
Before the actual award ceremony takes place, the 2024 Grammy Premiere Ceremony will air live from the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, California, on Feb. 4, at 12:30 p.m. PT/3:30 p.m. ET on the Recording Academy's YouTube channel and on live.GRAMMY.com. You don't want to miss this ceremony because this is where the majority of this year's Grammy Awards are awarded.
Singer-songwriter Justin Tranter, who is currently nominated for Songwriter of the Year, Non-Classical, is set to host the premiere ceremony with performances by Adam Blackstone, Brandy Clark, Gaby Moreno, Harvey Mason, J. Ivy, Jordin Sparks, Kirk Franklin, Sheila E., and others.

Emmy winner Trevor Noah will host the ceremony once again. This will be his fourth time.

He's going up against other well-known comedians such as Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Chris Rock, and Dave Chappelle. He was previously nominated for Best Comedy Album for his 2018 comedy special Son of Patricia, but he ended up losing to Dave Chappelle's Sticks & Stones at the 62nd Grammy Awards.
