Music’s biggest night just got even better!
The Recording Academy announced a star-studded list of musicians — many of whom have a Grammy or two on their own mantels at home — and actors who will be presenting statuettes at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, set to take place Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Among the group are current Grammy nominees Kelsea Ballerini, who’s up for best country album, as well as best new artist nominee Luke Combs and Leon Bridges, nominated for two awards, including best R&B album. Charlie Wilson, who’s nominated for best traditional R&B performance for his collaboration with Lalah Hathaway, will also be presenting.
Grammy Award winners Alessia Cara, Julian Edelman, Eve, John Mayer, Bob Newhart, Smokey Robinson, Meghan Trainor, and hit DJ and producer Swizz Beatz — who’s married to host Alicia Keys — will also take the stage to give away some of the night’s exciting awards.

The list of presenters also includes the immensely popular Korean boy band BTS, singer Kane Brown, Cedric the Entertainer — who was nominated for a Grammy in 2000 for best spoken comedy album — as well as actors Nina Dobrev, Anna Kendrick, Jada Pinkett Smith and Wilmer Valderrama.
According to a recent report from Variety, Ariana Grande, whose Grammy appearance and rumored performance has been advertised on billboards promoting the show — will not be serenading the audience at the Staples Center or, for that matter, even showing up.
Grande’s decision to pull out was prompted by a disagreement with the show’s producers over what songs she would perform, the magazine reported, as the singer wanted full control over her set list, which she wanted to include recent hit “7 Rings.”
