As the list of Grammy performers is slowly revealed over the next few weeks, it’s time to think about who is left — and who the fans really want to see there.
There are numerous performers already announced — including Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, and Kesha (see the full performer list so far here) — but there are a slew of other nominated artists who could potentially take the Grammy stage.
In addition to other nominees, there’s Super Bowl halftime performer Justin Timberlake, whose Man of the Woods album comes out less than a week after the ceremony and who has electrified the Grammy stage in the past. Or there’s BTS and EXO: two huge acts who have contributed to K-pop’s gaining popularity in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s Reputation album might have been released after last year’s nomination deadline, but she’s nominated as a writer for two songs: her Zayn duet “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” and Little Big Town‘s “Better Man.” Could she make a surprise appearance during the country quartet’s already-announced performance?
