    Awards season is back, and Bad Bunny and Lizzo are among the artists confirmed to take the stage at the 2023 Grammy Awards on February 5th. Their fellow nominees Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, on the other hand, reportedly won’t perform at the Arena on Sunday, February 5th.

    Also among the list of confirmed performers so far are Brandi Carlile, Mary J. Blige, Luke Combs, Steve Lacy, Kim Petras, and Sam Smith, with more expected to be announced in the coming days. Rumor has it throughout the music biz, though, that Swift, Beyoncé, and Kendrick Lamar are all “unlikely” to make appearances, according to Hits Daily Double. Update: Adele has confirmed she does intend to appear at the Grammys.

    Already with two trophies to his name, Bad Bunny is up for three nominations this year: Album of the Year and Best Música Urbana Album for his smash LP Un Verano Sin Ti, as well as Best Pop Solo Performance for its single “Moscow Mule.” Three-time winner Lizzo has a whopping five nominations this year: “About Damn Time” earned her nods for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance, while the album Special is up for Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year.
