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
Previously announced GRAMMY performers include Lady Gaga, J Balvin with Maria Becerra, Jon Batiste, Brothers Osborne, BTS, Brandi Carlile, Billie Eilish, Cynthia Erivo, H.E.R., John Legend, Lil Nas X with Jack Harlow, Maverick City Music, Nas, Aymée Nuviola, Leslie Odom, Jr., Ben Platt, Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic, Chris Stapleton, Billy Strings, Carrie Underwood, and Rachel Zegler.
