The GRAMMY®-nominated musical “Hamilton” ushers Broadway back to the GRAMMY Awards® stage after a more than five-year hiatus.
GRAMMY winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and his extraordinary cast will perform a number from the acclaimed musical on the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards, directly from the legendary Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York, marking one of only four times that the GRAMMY telecast has featured a performance live via satellite.
The “Hamilton” performance will be the eighth time in history that musical theater has been featured on the GRAMMY Awards. Previous Broadway productions featured on the telecast include “Godspell” (1972); “The Magic Show” (1975); “Sophisticated Ladies” (1982); “La Cage Aux Folles” (1984); “Will Rogers Follies” (1992); “Riverdance” and “Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk” (1997); and, most recently, “American Idiot” (2010).
Previously announced performers include Adele, James Bay, Andra Day, Ellie Goulding, Sam Hunt, Tori Kelly, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, and The Weeknd.
Entertainment icon and two-time GRAMMY winner LL COOL J is set to host Music’s Biggest Night for the fifth consecutive year.
