Entertainment Grammy Awards: These Stars Perform
‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Jodie Foster (‘The Mauritanian’)
Fifty-five years into a legendary career, one of the few people ever to be a bona fide movie star as both a child and an adult reflects on what got her into and keeps her in the game, why she’s drawn to characters who could have been — and sometimes were written to be — males, and how her objectives changed when she turned 50.Foster is not only still acting, but acting at a level that has returned her to a familiar place: the center of the annual awards conversation.
The past year was not an easy one for the music industry either. It is all the more important now to emphasize the importance of music, its protagonists and venues at this year's Grammy Awards. The Grammys have announced the full lineup for this year's event. Spectators can look forward to top-class figures from the charts. Billie Eilish (19,), Harry Styles (27, "Watermelon Sugar"), Taylor Swift (31, "the 1") and Cardi B (28, ) will perform. Other performances include Black Pumas ("Colors"), BTS ("Dynamite"), Haim ("Gasoline"), Miranda Lambert (37, "Bluebird"), Dua Lipa (25, "Don't Start Now") ), Chris Martin (44, "Fix You"), John Mayer (43, "New Light") and Post Malone (25, "Sunflower") are expected.
‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast — Riz Ahmed (‘Sound of Metal’)
A Brit of Pakistani descent who in 2017 became the first Muslim and Asian male to win an acting Emmy discusses how his early work reflected and perpetuated inner conflict, what caused a post-Emmy breakdown and why he is returning to his indie roots.This season, Ahmed has already been nominated for a best actor Golden Globe Award; is nominated for best actor Critics Choice and SAG awards; and is almost certain to be nominated for best actor BAFTA and Academy awards, as well. On a recent episode of Awards Chatter, the 37-year-old delved into his journey to this moment.
How exactly the show will run this year is not yet known. In a teaser,, it says: "One Stage", which suggests that despite the pandemic, all artists will perform on one and the same stage. : "The artists come together and yet are separated from one another to play music for one another and as a community and to celebrate the music that unites us all."

Beyoncé is top favorite
In addition, the "Music's Biggest Night", as the Grammys are commonly called, pays tribute to the independent venues who have suffered particularly from the pandemic. This year, bartenders and cashiers from various clubs or concert halls will be presenting the different categories. Cabaret artist and presenter Trevor Noah (37, "color blind") will lead through the evening.
The 63rd Grammy Awards will take place on March 14th and will be broadcast live on CBS. In Germany, the show can only be seen by Telekom customers via MagentaTV and MagentaMusik 360. There, however, both live in the nightly broadcast and on March 15 from 8:15 p.m. With a total of nine nominations, Beyoncé has the best chance of winning big at the Grammy Awards 2021.
