BTS and Common have joined the lineup for MusiCares’ Music on a Mission event on March 12. The virtual event will feature never-before-seen performances — some live, some on tape — from Haim, H.E.R., Jhené Aiko and John Legend. Music on a Mission is replacing the traditional MusiCares’ Person of the Year gala, a mainstay of Grammy Week since 1991 that’s been canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event will also include video from the MusiCares vault of performances at past Person of the Year galas by Stevie Nicks, Usher, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and several more artists to be named soon. It will also feature a pre-show DJ set by DJ D-Nice and “special appearances” by Carole King, Jesse & Joy, Jonas Brothers, Ledisi, Lionel Richie, Macklemore, Mick Fleetwood, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and Shakira.
Tickets for the new event are on sale now and will be accessible to the general public in a way the Person of the Year gala never was. General-admission tickets are $25 and Music on a Mission will take place in the Person of the Year gala’s usual time slot — two days before the 63rd annual Grammy telecast.
BTS are nominated for best pop duo/group performance at the upcoming Grammys for their smash English-language hit “Dynamite.”
