Kendrick Lamar, U2 & more performing at 2018 Grammys

Elton John, the recipient of the Merit Award, will be joined onstage by Cyrus.

Elton John has a good track record with picking out talent to duet with on the Grammy stage.

Approximately seven years ago, Kendrick Lamar signed with Warner/Chappell Music and has since become one of the publishing company's most explosive famed acts. However, the Recording Academy has not stated what songs Lamar will perform at the ceremony.

Lamar's last album, "DAMN.", was certified double platinum by the RIAA, for album sales and streaming-equivalent figures, following its release in April 2017.

The program is produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for the Recording Academy.


The Grammy Awards will be televised on CBS on January 28.

The Compton rapper will be joining the likes of the aforementioned Cardi B, fellow TDE label mate SZA, Childish Gambino, Bruno Mars, and "Despacito" creators Fonsi and Daddy Yankee amongst others.

To mark the Grammys' return to New York City, the show will also feature tributes to Broadway legends Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein featuring Patti LuPone and Ben Platt. The Recording Academy is also expected to carve out a segment to honor the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winners, which include Neil Diamond, Queen, and Tina Turner.

Hosted by James Corden, the Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from New York's Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT.
