Grammys News: Joni Mitchell Will Be A Presenter (Best Album?), Along with Lenny Kravitz, Bonnie Raitt, Megan Thee Stallion


So: Joni Mitchell is spending the weekend in Las Vegas.

Tonight Joni will be feted at Musicares Person of the Year Award dinner in Vegas for the Grammys. A slew of artists will perform Joni’s songs for her in tribute. I’m sure it will be sensational and I’m sorry to miss it.

Then on Sunday Joni will be a presenter at the Grammys live on CBS. I can’t imagine she’ll do anything less than present Album of the Year. To who, though? Olivia Rodrigo? Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga?

Right now, Joni is represented with her classic song “Both Sides Now” in the Oscar winning movie, “CODA.”

Other presenters include Dua Lipa, Ludacris, Billy Porter, Bonnie Raitt, and Keith Urban; past GRAMMY nominees Kelsea Ballerini and Avril Lavigne; actors and musicians Jared Leto and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez; and actor Anthony Mackie, and Questlove
