Who Is Hosting the 2017 Grammys?

James Corden will take over Grammy hosting duties from LL Cool J, who emceed the awards show from 2012-2016. LL Cool J still stars opposite Chris O'Donnell on CBS' NCIS: Los Angeles, but Corden has become a network darling with the breakout success of The Late Late Show's "Carpool Karaoke" franchise (Apple Music has purchased the rights to a separate spinoff "Carpool" series).

"We look forward to bringing James' exceptional showmanship, infectious energy, and his undeniable kinship with music the to GRAMMY stage," said Jack Sussman, Executive VP of Specials, Music, And Live Events for CBS Entertainment.

Who Is Performing at the 2017 Grammys? 

Lady Gaga will reportedly perform alongside Metallica, a TV spot for the Grammys revealed on February 6. The veteran rockers were the first act to confirm a 2017 Grammys performance, as the band first announced it on January 14. It'll be the band's fourth time playing the Grammys stage within 25 years (and their first Lady Gaga collaboration).

Katy Perry will return to the Grammys stage, as confirmed by the Recording Academy on February 6. While Katy released her latest single "Rise" back in July of 2016, fans are already speculating that the addition may mean a first taste of her forthcoming fourth studio album.

Beyonce is reportedly set to perform at the Grammys, Entertainment Tonight confirmed on February 2, claiming the pregnant pop star was spotted in secret rehearsals. Event producer Ken Erlich had previously indicated to Billboard that Album of the Year and Record of the Year nominees Adele and Beyonce would both perform at the 2017 Grammys; it would seem they indeed locked the two queens down.

Ed Sheeran has also been added to the roster, the Recording Academy announced on Sunday (February 12).

The Weeknd will return to the Grammys stage alongside French duo Daft Punk. The acts collaborated on two singles off of The Weeknd's Starboy album: The title track, and "I Feel It Coming."

Chance the Rapper, who is up for seven awards (including Best New Artist, and two for his feature on Kanye West's "Ultralightbeam") will make his Grammy performance debut. The independent Chicago artist made history with his nominations, as his Coloring Book album is the first streaming-only release to be nominated since the Grammys changed their eligibility rules to keep up with the evolving industry in June 2016.

"My Church" singer Maren Morris, who's among this year's Best New Artist nominees, will duet with 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys.

Another hotly anticipated team-up: Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will join Best New Artist nominee Anderson Paak and rap group A Tribe Called Quest, who returned in 2016 with the album We Got It from Here...Thank You 4 Your Service following group member Phife Dawg's death. 

Four-time Grammy winner Bruno Mars will be performing at this year's event as well as confirmed by The Recording Academy on January 25. A Grammy tribute to Prince, who died on April 21, 2016, is set — and reports have Bruno in talks to join Paisley Park Records band The Time for a tribute. There will also be a tribute to the late, great George Michael.

Mars will likely bring a number from his newly-released 24K Magic to the stage, as he did opening the 2016 American Music Awards — we're guessing "That's What I Like."

Ten-time Grammy winner Adele is officially set to perform, the Recording Academy confirmed on January 20.

John Legend, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban will be taking the stage at the 2017 Grammys, as confirmed by the Recording Academy on January 18.

Carrie and Keith will be performing together.

Two-time Grammy winners Little Big Town, who saw country chart success with the Taylor Swift-written "Better Man" in 2016, will also perform, as confirmed on February 2. Best New Artist nominee Sturgill Simpson, like the others in his Grammy category, will perform, and singer and guitarist Gary Clark Jr. will team up with nominee William Bell.

Who Are the 2017 Grammy Nominees?

Meghan Trainor announced four of this year's Grammy nominees categories on CBS This Morning on December 6: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year and Best New Artist, which Trainor won in 2016. The 84 remaining categories were announced on the official GRAMMYs website.

As predicted, Adele, Drake and Beyonce lead with a host of nominations, including respective nods for Album of the Year. Meanwhile, Chance the Rapper, who has seen commercial success despite not being signed to any label and releasing 2016's Coloring Book for free, is up for Best New Artist and Best Rap Album, plus noms for his single "Problem" and Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam."
