The 2020 GRAMMYs certainly left some artists bitter with several snubs and it will seem Grammy showrunner Ben Winston is here to save the day.
Per Hits Daily Double, The well-liked and well connected Winston, brought aboard by CBS exec Jack Sussman, is believed to have secured Taylor Swift and Harry Styles in addition to Dua Lipa for the 63rd Grammy Awards show and made nice with Beyoncé, who could easily have told Music’s Biggest Night to shove it after the Academy stiffed Jay-Z in 2018 with an 0-for-8 shutout. According to inside sources, it should be noted, neither Taylor nor Harry has been confirmed for the show yet.
Rumors are also swirling that Adele is seriously considering the Grammy stage as the starting point for her new album rollout. Winston’s ties to the U.K.’s biggest stars shouldn’t be overlooked here, as well as a killer track record with artists (during his tenure on James Corden’s show, you’ll recall, “Carpool Karaoke” attracted the world’s biggest stars) and no existing Grammy baggage.
If the said rumour is accurate, Winston is set to be the Recording Academy’s savior as his efforts will heal old wounds and make the Grammy executives look good in the upcoming 2021 Grammys.
Our excitement for the 2021 Grammys which is set to broadcast live on CBS on 31st January has just been thrown out the roof.
