8 Moments We Can't Wait to See at the 2017 Grammys

The 59th annual Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, February 12 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS, and we're already getting pumped to see so many beloved musicians in one room. (Though, come on now, knowing that Beyoncé will be in attendance is enough reason to tune in!) Plenty of buzz has been brewing about particular performances and special appearances we can look forward to seeing on the awards show stage. Here are eight moments we can't wait to see Sunday night.

1. Katy Perry will perform!

🇧🇷A little something for being so patient, Rio! Go to ARPOADOR right now! 🇧🇷

The pop star, whose last album "Prism" came out in 2013, is back with a new reggae- and disco-tinged single, "Chained to the Rhythm," which Perry confirmed she'll perform on Sunday night. That gives fans plenty of time to memorize every last lyric!

2. Beyoncé will win big, obviously.

Queen Bey, whose hit visual album "Lemonade" basically made 2016 for most of us, is nominated for nine awards total, including record of the year, song of the year and album of the year. Who will be surprised if she sweeps all of the categories? Absolutely no one, that's who. Plus, we get to see her in her first major public appearance since she announced she's having twins, and if that wasn't enough, she's going to perform at the show, according to Billboard. Yessss!

3. Lady Gaga will perform with Metallica.

If you loved her Super Bowl performance and you need another Gaga fix, you are in luck, my friend, because the pop star is set to appear on the Grammys stage alongside Metallica. Not sure if this performance could possibly outdo the heartfelt tribute she gave David Bowie last year, but it will undoubtedly rock.  

4. Alicia Keys will pair up with Maren Morris.

Found my zen at Grammy rehearsals. Jk. Still freaking out.

The “Girl on Fire” singer will duet with the “‘80s Mercedes” country singer. You know any Keys performance is a can’t-miss, but it’ll be exciting to see what she and Morris have planned to do as a power duo. 

5. James Corden is hosting!

For that extra push 💪 James Corden (@J_Corden) hosts the #GRAMMYs Feb. 12 🎤 #BelieveInMusic

LL Cool J has hosted the show for the last five years, but 2017 is all about "The Late Late Show" comedian, who is always entertaining! I wouldn't be surprised if he brings his "Carpool Karaoke" shtick to the Grammys lineup. "I am truly honored to be hosting the GRAMMYs," Corden said in a statement. "It's the biggest, most prestigious awards show in music, and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night.

6. Fans of Saturday Night Fever will get a special treat.

Demi Lovato, Andra Day, Tori Kelly and Little Big Town will all join forces to celebrate the music of the Bee Gees and the 40th anniversary of the disco classic "Saturday Night Fever." Sounds like a party waiting to happen, right?

7. George Michael and Prince will be honored.

Although there's always the "in memoriam" tribute on the big show, the Grammys said there will be live memorials for both superstars who passed away last year and are sorely missed. Vogue.com guesses that perhaps this will include tributes from Bruno Mars and a Tribe Called Quest. 

8. Adele will go toe-to-toe with Beyoncé.

Like Bey, Adele has wracked up lots of nods this year. The super-talented songbird is nominated in five Grammys categories, including song of the year. And something tells me no one will be able to beat "Hello."
