I will start with the sober news. Tay Swift, based on many different media reports, will not be performing or presenting at the Grammy Awards. She will be at the ceremony, though. She will be watching what happens on stage like the rest of us, only she will probably have to get on stage to accept an award or six.

There will also be plenty of talented musical artist who do perform. Not counting the In Memoriam part of the show, seven female arists will perform. The Grammys seem to have finally come around to the fact that women are pretty good at music too.

The best we can hope for that is non-scripted is an impromptu bit. But let us hope we do not see a Will Smith and Chris Rock type moment. No violence, please.

U2 will be performing but not live from Arena. They will be broadcast live from just outside Las Vegas, Nevada at the Sphere. This is where they are playing their set of gigs during their Las Vegas residency.

Billy Joel will be performing his recently released single, "Turn the Lights Back On." If you have not heard the song, it is reminiscent of Joel's piano-driven ballads from the 1970s. The track is worth a listen.

Luke Combs will perform with Tracy Chapman on "Fast Car." Chapman, of course, wrote the song and released the single in 1988. At that time, the song was nominated for three Grammy Awards and won for Best Pop Vocal Performance. Combs' version is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance.
