The 2018 Grammy Awards are right around the corner & they’re coming back to NYC for the first time in 15 years to celebrate the 60th anniversary. This year’s Grammy ceremony will feature performances from first-timer Childish Gambino, as well as Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Pink and a couple of Broadway favorites.  Patti LuPone, a two-time Grammy winner, will reprise her 1981 Grammy performance of “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.” As well, Ben Platt, currently nominated for the soundtrack to “Dear Evan Hansen,” will perform a classic from “West Side Story” in tribute to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein. Lady Gaga is expected to perform a track from her nominated “Joanne” album. In recent years, the Grammy Awards have become known for their creative pairing of artists (last year Gaga performed with Metallica in one of the highlights of the show), so the performance list will undoubtedly grow as the Jan. 28 ceremony gets closer.  The show will air live from Madison Square Garden at 7:30 p.m. on CBS. Last year’s ringleader, James Corden, returns as host.
