Lady Gaga is to perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards

Lady Gaga

The 31-year-old singer – who is up for Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Million Reasons’ and Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Joanne’ – will take to the stage at the ceremony for the sixth time, and fourth consecutive year, when the annual event takes place at New York’s Madison Square Garden on January 28.

Also announced by The Recording Academy to be performing this year are three-time Grammy winner Pink, who is also up for Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘What About Us’, Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, who will mark his five nominations with his stage debut at the ceremony, and Little Big Town, who are also in the running for two trophies.

For the past 15 years, the Grammy Awards have taken place in Los Angeles, but to mark their return to New York, the ceremony will include a special Broadway tribute honouring the music of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein.

The segment will see two-time winner Patti LuPone reprise her 1981 role in ‘Evita’ for a rendition of ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’, and Ben Platt – who is currently appearing in Best Musical Theatre Album nominee ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ – will perform a classic track from ‘West Side Story’.

James Corden will return as host of the Grammy Awards.

Leading the way in the nominees is rapper Jay-Z who has been nominated for eight prizes, including album, song and record of the year, while Kendrick Lamar is shortlisted for seven accolades and Bruno Mars has six nods.

The ‘Loyalty’ hitmaker and the ‘That’s What I Like’ singer will go head-to-head with Jay for the biggest prize, Album of the Year, with their respective records ‘Humble’ and ’24K Magic’ up for the prize, along with Childish Gambino’s ‘Awaken, My Love!’ and Lorde’s ‘Melodrama’.
