Kendrick Lamar, U2, And Dave Chapelle Will Take The Stage At The 2018 Grammys
The 2018 Grammy Awards is already packed with a star-studded group of performers, but the award show continues to get bigger.
According to E! News, music's biggest night will reportedly kick off with Dave Chapelle, U2, and Kendrick Lamar. Although it is unclear how Chapelle will fit into the performance, Lamar and U2 are certainly no strangers to collaboration.
Lamar and U2 were previously announced as the performers for the big night. The duo collaborated on Lamar's latest album Damn. The TDE star returned the favor by delivering a spoken-word piece on U2's newest song "Get Out of Your Own Way." Hence, it's highly likely the pair will join forces for a rendition of their collaborations at this year's Grammy.
Aside from performing, Lamar is also up for seven nominations following Jay-Z, who has been nominated for eight awards. The "Humble" rapper has been nominated for Record of the Year and Album of the Year.
Lamar's Album of the Year nomination makes it his third consecutive album to be nominated for the award. The rapper will also close out the night with his limited- edition collaboration with Nike Cortez.
Chapelle, U2, and Lamar join a star-studded list of performers such as Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Childish Gambino, Elton John and many more.
While it may have been confirmed that Chapelle will join Lamar and U2 in the opening act, the comedian was originally slated to present at Sunday's show. John Legend, Alicia Keys, Nick Jonas, and Kelly Clarkson are also named as presenters at the ceremony.
Will The 2018 Grammy's Go Down In History?
Amid the anticipation of the performances, Late Late Show host James Corden is preparing to host the annual ceremony for the second year in a row.
"To be hosting the show like the Grammy's is so far beyond anything I thought I would ever do with my life," Corden said.
The talk show host made sure to not reveal any possible surprises that will occur on the big night. When asked if he knew any details about the performance, Corden stated that he hadn't seen anything yet because they haven't started rehearsing. However, he saw the outline, so, he thinks it's going to be amazing and incredible.
Fans will just have to wait and see if Corden is right. The 60th Annual Grammy Awards will start at 7:30 p.m. on CBS on Sunday.
