This year's Grammy Awards, which is scheduled for Sunday, will open with the performance of British singer-songwriter Harry Styles, Variety reported. The event will air live on CBS at 8 pm (ET) with Trevor Noah as the host.
“You don’t want to miss the top of the show,” Jack Sussman, CBS’ executive VP of specials, music and live events told Variety. "It’s going to be music coming at you heavy and hard like you’ve not seen it before." he said.
"We’ve got Harry Styles, this incredible entertainer, at the top of the show and we’ll just keep coming at you," Sussman added.
Styles has been nominated in three categories -- best pop solo performance for 'Watermelon Sugar', best pop vocal album for 'Fine Line' and best music video for 'Adore You'.
Among this year's performers are BTS, Taylor Swift, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, among others.
Noah will host the event for the first time. "He’s amped-up, he can’t wait to get out there," Sussman told Variety about the Daily Show host. "He’s the perfect host for the Grammys in 2021," he added.
