Exclusive: Lizzo, JHud, Maneskin Among All-Star Performers, Nancy and Paul Pelosi Among Guests Set for Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala Blowout


I’m hearing that Clive Davis’s return to post-pandemic pre-Grammy glory on Saturday night will be something to remember for all time.

Already bandied about as performers are Lizzo, Jennifer Hudson, and Maneskin. There’s also a Big Star I’m not allowed to reveal that will make the celebrities in the Beverly Hills Hilton ballroom go nuts.

And who’s coming? From what I can figure out, the guest list already includes beloved former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her husband, Paul, plus this list slipped to me by a spy:

Lil Nas X

Janelle Monae

Machine Gun Kelly

Diane Warren


Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis


Nancy Pelosi

Tim Cook


Toni Braxton

Ted Sarandos

Clarence Avant

Brandi Carlile

Wiz Kalifa

Magic Johnson

Sheryl Crow

Alice Cooper

Hello! Clive is almost 91 years young and there is no one else like him in entertainment, music or movies or anything else. Stay tuned for updates. No will have the energy for the actual Grammys on Sunday at this rate! And half the town will be home Friday night resting up for this memorable gathering!
