After a chaotic 2022 Oscars, it’s time for the biggest night of music: the 2022 Grammys, which will take place on Sunday, April 3. As always, the show will be packed with powerful performances by nominees and other artists alike, such as Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas, Justin Bieber and Billie Eilish, fresh from her Oscar win.
One person who could make history this Sunday is Taylor Swift. Her album ‘Evermore’ is nominated for Best Album of the Year, her only nod for this edition. If she won it, it would be the artist with more wins in this nomination with four after her triumphs with ‘Fearless’, ‘1989’ and ‘Folklore’, last year.
Right now, she’s the only female artist with three victories in that category and it’s tied with Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Frank Sinatra. Last year, she performed a medley of various songs from Folklore and Evermore: 'cardigan', 'august' and 'willow'. Will she perform this year too? Here, check it out.
Taylor Swift won’t perform at the 2022 Grammys
Swift’s name is not included in the musicians participating in the show and she hasn’t confirmed her attendance to the show, which will take place in Las Vegas. However, as she has the chance of making history, she could still attend the ceremony as a nominee.
She’s competing in the category with Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, H.E.R., Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Jon Batiste, and Kanye West. Of those artists, Rodrigo, Eilish, Lady Gaga, Lil Nas X and H.E.R are going to perform.
