Who Is Performing at the 2022 Grammys? Full Lineup Revealed

The 2022 Grammys are airing on CBS on April 3, with the biggest stars and best of the year's music set to be celebrated.

While some artists will just be making the most of the (presumably) free bar, others have the joint role of being performers and nominees at this year's awards. Over the last few weeks, the Grammys have been confirming the performers' lineup, with two dozen of music's biggest names confirmed to be taking to the stage.

Unsurprisingly, some of the most-nominated people of the year are performing. These acts include Jon Batiste, leading the pack with 11 nominations, H.E.R. (with eight), Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo (with seven). Global phenomenons like BTS and Lil Nas X will also perform, while acts like Justin Bieber and Doja Cat are skipping a year despite being the joint second-most nominated artists of the year.

Though exactly who is performing what will remain a secret until CBS airs the ceremony, the lineup provides some hints. The presence of both Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow, for example, suggests they will be performing their joint hit "Industry Baby."

We also know that Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Ben Platt and Rachel Zegler are teaming up for a tribute to the late Stephen Sondheim, and that Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) will open the show.

A question mark, however, hangs above one band confirmed to play at the Grammys: Foo Fighters, who canceled all their tour dates following the death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins. However, it has been confirmed that there will be a tribute to the drummer at the ceremony.

"We will honour his memory in some way," CBS's executive vice president of specials, music and live events Jack Sussman told Variety. "We want to figure out what is the right thing to do that is respectful to everyone involved. We're patient. We'll be planning right up until the very end."

Here's who will be taking to the stage at the awards this year.
