Tonight is the night! The biggest names in the music business are going to converge on Los Angeles later for the Grammy Awards 2023, which honour the best albums and artists of the past year.


Stand-up comedian and former The Daily Show host Trevor Noah is taking on hosting duties for the evening, which will see exciting live performances from the likes of Harry Styles, Lizzo and Sam Smith, among others.

Viewers can also expect a moving celebration of music icons that we lost in 2022, including Loretta Lynn, Fleetwood Mac's Christie McVie and Migos star Takeoff, during a special In Memoriam section.

Of course, the main event will be the awards themselves, with a stellar mix of talent in the running for recognition this year, including Doja Cat, Steve Lacy, Beyoncé, Adele, ABBA and Kendrick Lamar.

Wet Leg are one of several acts representing the United Kingdom on an international stage, with the Isle of Wight indie band riding high after their debut album was certified gold and shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize.

Co-founder Rhian Teasdale told the Grammys: "Well, it's so weird to see us nominated, for one. Then it's so weird to see us sandwiched between like, Karen O [of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs] and Björk in the Alternative Album [category] — all these really legitimate artists."

Boasting the most nominations this year in Beyoncé, with nine nominations for her tracks from Renaissance, only heightening the extreme demand for tickets to her corresponding tour – which have been reaching astronomical prices online.

The Grammys are one of the highlights of an eventful period for the entertainment industry, which also includes other glitzy ceremonies such as the Academy Awards and the BAFTAs.
