Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, and BTS are among the artists set to perform at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

The ‘Delicate ’ hitmaker, the 27-year-old singer, and the K-Pop megastars will all take to the virtual stage at the annual music awards ceremony, which is set to take place next week on March 14

The complete list of performers for this year’s ceremony – which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles but will not feature any in-person attendance due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – was announced by the Recording Academy on Sunday (07.03.21). The list includes the likes of Billie Eilish, Cardi B, and Megan Thee Stallion.

Other mega stars set to perform their biggest hits from the past year are Bad Bunny, Black Pumas, Brandi Carlile, DaBaby, Doja Cat, Mickey Guyton, Haim, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Lil Baby, Dua Lipa, Chris Martin, John Mayer, Maren Morris, Post Malone, and Roddy Ricch.

The Recording Academy stated,

“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, the Grammys audience will consist of performers, nominees, and a small number of guests, whilst some performers – including Korean-based band BTS – will take to remote stages.

Grammy executive producer Ben Winston has confirmed some of the performances will be pre-recorded. There will be four stages for those performing live on the night so that everyone can have plenty of space to perform safely.

“We’ve designed a set that you could argue makes it an even more exciting show. The performers and nominees are each other’s audience, so it’s a room of incredible musicians, all safely distanced from each other, and every 45 minutes a new four groups come in, and the [previous] four go out.”

The 2021 Grammy Awards will be hosted by Trevor Noah and will air live on March 14 at 8pm EST, 5pm PST, and 1am GMT.
