Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be drippin’ in “Finesse” at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. The duo has just been added to a growing list of performers, which also includes SZA, Logic, Khalid, Alessia Cara, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, and Kesha.
It could be a huge night for Bruno Mars and Cardi B. Five-time winner Bruno is up for Album of the Year and Best R&B Album for 24K Magic, Record of the Year for “24K Magic,” and Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance, and Best R&B Song for “That’s What I Like.” Meanwhile, newcomer Bardi is in the running for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Bodak Yellow.”
First-time Grammy nominees Logic, Alessia Cara, and Khalid will be taking the stage with suicide attempt and loss survivors that were selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. A similar performance concept was also utilized at the MTV Video Music Awards and then again at the Latin Grammys. Their collaboration “1-800-273-8255” is up for Song of the Year and Best Music Video.
