There are seven new reasons to watch the 2019 Grammy Awards, if you're into that sort of thing: Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Post Malone, Janelle Monáe, Shawn Mendes, and Dan + Shay. The Recording Academy has announced they'll all be performing at this year's ceremony, to take place in Los Angeles next month.
Missing from the list, you might notice, are Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. What gives? Their
A Star Is Born
duet "Shallow" is nominated for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year. But this
just the first announcement, so who knows what surprises are in store.
(Lady Gaga is a Grammys regular; she performed her
track "Million Reasons" at the 2018 ceremony, which could easily have taken place one million years ago.)
