Get ready for a show-stopping performance at the 66th annual Grammy Awards, as the sensational R&B singer SZA is set to take the stage on February 4th. With a remarkable nine Grammy nominations under her belt, all eyes will be on her during the telecast.
SZA’s sophomore album, “SOS,” released in December 2022, has propelled her to the top of the nominee list. The album itself is in contention for the coveted Album of the Year award, while its chart-topping single “Kill Bill” has earned nominations for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Additionally, several tracks from “SOS” have received nods in the pop and R&B categories, solidifying SZA’s place as a musical powerhouse.
For SZA, the 2024 Grammy Awards represent a chance to finally secure the recognition she deserves. Despite being a five-time nominee for her debut album “Ctrl” in 2018, she faced disappointment by not winning in any category. However, in 2022, she did secure a Grammy for her collaboration with Doja Cat on “Kiss Me More.” Yet, she has often felt overlooked by the Recording Academy.
Reflecting on her past experiences with the Grammys, SZA shared her perspective in an interview with Variety in November, saying, “I’ve lost enough times to know that investing in this moment is not wise.” She went on to explain, “It’s my first time being this popular, and I saw a huge uptick in negativity at the exact same time. You have to place your importance on who you are as an artist and as a person.”
SZA’s inclusion as a performer at this year’s Grammys adds to the excitement surrounding the event. Previously announced acts include Joni Mitchell, who will make her Grammys performance debut, and music legends like U2, Billy Joel, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Luke Combs, Travis Scott, and Burna Boy, promising a night filled with unforgettable musical moments.
Mark your calendars for the 2024 Grammy Awards, set to air on CBS from L.A.’s Crypto.com Arena on February 4th, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. With SZA’s electrifying presence and the star-studded lineup, this year’s Grammys are sure to be a celebration of musical excellence that fans won’t want to miss.
