With Bruno Mars nabbing six Grammy nominations and Cardi B emerging with two, it makes sense that the Grammys would add them to the list of performers, which already includes Childish Gambino and Lady Gaga. The thing is, with Bruno calling on Cardi to turn his song "Finesse" into a work of art, it would make sense that they'd be performing this particular song together during the 2018 Grammys ceremony... right?
I mean, what are they going to do, take the time out to make sure someone's bleeping out all of the dirty words in "Bodak Yellow"? Actually, I'm here for that. Either way, Variety reported this news as "Bruno Mars with Cardi B," which could mean Bruno's got an extended chunk of the show that will feature Cardi B coming out for the "Finesse" remix, or just the two of them turning up for the audience.
Even if you aren't a fan of Bruno Mars, you had to have seen his show-stopping 2017 Grammys performance; that man can perform his ass off, and even if Cardi wasn't there, his segment would be one of the best to watch. Cardi B needs no introduction; she spent 2017 on the rise, taking over Billboard charts and naysayer's hearts with every new stream of "Bodak Yellow."
Bruno and Cardi aren't the only performers being added to this year's show; SZA, Kesha, Logic, Khalid, Alessia Cara, Luis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee are all slated to perform as well. Def Jam sent a press release stating that Logic, Alessia Cara, and Khalid "will take the stage with a group of suicide attempt and loss survivors selected by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in a special performance delivering an important message." They did a similar performance at MTV's 2017 VMAs show.
It's going to be an intriguing show, based on performers alone, so be sure to keep it locked for the ceremony, which airs live on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
