When music’s biggest night draws to a close, might Jon Batiste be holding more Grammys in his overflowing arms than Michael Jackson? Or could Taylor Swift make history with a fourth album of the year win?
Sunday’s 64th Grammy Awards have moved from L.A. to Las Vegas and bring a host of intriguing story lines to Sin City.
Batiste leads all artists with 11 nominations – even more impressively, in 11 different categories – and he looks to break Jackson and Santana’s tied record of eight Grammys in one show. (He also revealed Sunday that he’s been secretly married since February.) Swift has only one nomination for “Evermore” but it’s a big one: album of the year. Taking that home would put her on the top of that mountain by herself, since she’s currently tied with Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder with three wins each in the category.

Mega-popular BTS again looks to become the first K-pop act with a Grammy win – their hit “Butter” is up for best pop duo/group performance. And singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo could sweep the four top categories – record, song and album of the year, plus best new artist – following in the footsteps of Billie Eilish’s trophy haul two years ago.
Stay tuned for all the highlights and winners from the Grammy premiere ceremony (3:30 EDT/12:30 PDT) and then the big show (CBS, 8 EDT/5 PDT).

Olivia Rodrigo vs. Billie Eilish might be one for the ages
Two years after sweeping the major Grammy honors, Eilish returns with seven nominations this year, including album, song and record of the year for her “Happier Than Ever” and its title track. Rodrigo, the new kid on the scene, also has seven nods including those key categories. Plus she’s favored for the prestigious best new artist – yep, which Eilish won in 2020 – against a field that includes Glass Animals, Saweetie and Eilish’s own brother, Finneas.
