The 65th Grammy Awards air Sunday at 8 pm ET on CBS, and music fans can expect a showdown between mega performers like Adele, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar for the night’s top honors.
The ceremony will be hosted by Trevor Noah for the third year in a row.
All eyes will be on Beyoncé: She has won 41 Grammys, is nominated for nine, and needs three more to tie, or four more to earn the record for most overall wins in Grammys history (she is tied with her husband Jay-Z for the most nominations, with 88).
Watch for a performance dedicated to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, when the likes of Missy Elliot, Future, Lil Wayne, Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa and Spinderella, Queen Latifa and other legends will share the stage.
Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, and Quavo will perform during the “in memoriam” segment.
Other performers include Bad Bunny, Lizzo and Harry Styles.

This year’s Album Of The Year contest mirrored 2017’s, when Beyonce’s Lemonade was up against Adele’s 25. Adele won, and said during her acceptance speech that, “I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humbled, and I’ m very grateful and gracious, but the artist of my life is Beyoncé.” Lemonade, “was just so monumental… and so well thought out, and so beautiful and soul-bearing, and we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see… I love you, I always have, and I always will,” Adele said. To be eligible for the awards, music had to be released between October 1, 2022 and September 30, 2023. Still, some of the biggest songs from that time period are noticeably missing from the nominations, including work from Silk Sonic, Drake and The Weeknd, who opted not to submit for consideration.
