Grammy Exclusive Preview: Adele “All I Ask,” Lady Gaga Singing 10 Bowie Songs in Medley, Michael Jackson “Off the Wall” Tribute, Stevie Wonder Honors Maurice White


Here’s what I’m hearing about tonight’s Grammy show: Lady Gaga’s David Bowie tribute comprises 10 of the late Ziggy Stardust’s hits. She will steal the show, undoubtedly. Among the songs in her medley are “Heroes,” “Changes,” and “Let’s Dance.”

Taylor Swift is opening the show with “Out of the Woods.” The “Hamilton” will perform early in the program, live from New York.

Maurice White of Earth Wind & Fire will get a tribute from Stevie Wonder and Pentatonix. They’re doing “That’s the Way of the World.” Natalie Cole, Ben E. King and Percy Sledge are relegated to the In Memoriam section.

Miguel will sing Michael Jackson’s “She’s Out of My Life” as a nod to the anniversary of “Off the Wall.”

Right after that Adele will sing “All I Ask” with piano accompaniment. Is that her next single? No “When We Were Young” or “Water Under the Bridge.” The seven second bleeper button will be on just in case…

Plus there’s a Lionel Richie medley, and loads of other performances including well, you’ll see…
