By Mulder, Los Angeles, Crypto.com Arena, 04 february 2024

The 66th Grammy Awards kicked off with a dazzling pre-show ceremony at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, setting the stage for a star-studded evening. Trevor Noah, hosting for the fourth consecutive year, brought the excitement to fans eagerly awaiting the biggest night in music.

Leading the nominations with an impressive nine nods, SZA is poised for a remarkable evening. Her nominations include the coveted Record, Album, and Song of the Year for "Kill Bill" and "SOS." Not far behind, Phoebe Bridgers, Serban Ghenea, and Victoria Monét each secured seven nominations, while a slew of talented artists, including Jack Antonoff, Jon Batiste, boygenius, Brandy Clark, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, and Taylor Swift, amassed six apiece.

In a stunning start to the evening, SZA and Bridgers clinched the first Grammy of the day for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with their collaboration on "Ghost in the Machine." The much-anticipated Barbie movie, in the running for 11 Grammys, has already clinched two wins for its exceptional Soundtrack and the hauntingly beautiful "What Was I Made For?" by Billie Eilish O’Connell & Finneas O’Connell in the Best Song Written for Visual Media category.

Taylor Swift, who dominated 2023 with her Eras Tour, found herself in the spotlight tonight with nominations for Album of the Year ("Midnights") and Song of the Year ("Anti-Hero") and Record of the Year. Swift is part of an elite group of six artists who earned nominations in all three marquee categories, alongside SZA, Jon Batiste, Miley Cyrus, and Olivia Rodrigo.

The main show promises a spectacular lineup of performances, including sets by SZA, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Billy Joel, Burna Boy, Luke Combs, and Travis Scott. In a historic moment, Joni Mitchell is set to make her Grammy-show performing debut, and U2 will perform live from Sphere in Las Vegas.

Simultaneously, the Premiere ceremony, hosted by the talented songwriter-producer Justin Tranter, has been underway since 12:30 p.m. PT, unveiling winners in the Grammys' 94 categories. As the night progresses, music enthusiasts around the world eagerly await updates on the winners list, anticipating which artists will take home the prestigious Grammy Awards.
