N.W.A., Laurie Anderson, Donna Summer, Others To Receive Grammy Lifetime Achievement Awards

This year’s Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award nominees include N.W.A., Laurie Anderson, and Donna Summer. The award is given to individuals who have made significant contributions to the recording field, other than performance, during their music careers. The Trustees Awards and the Special Merit Awards honorees recognize the awardees. Three people were honoured this year: Joel Katz, an attorney, and producer/manager Peter Asker (James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt). Tom Kobayashi and Tom Scott will receive the Technical Grammy Awards in the interim.

The song “Refugee” by K’naan, Steve McEwan, and Gerald Eaton will also be recognized equally as the Best Song for Social Change. The Clark Sisters, Tammy Wynette, and Gladys Knight are among the 2024 cohort who will be honoured on February 3 at the Special Merit Awards ceremony. The Grammy Awards will take place in the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles the following day, and it will take place before them. On social media, Anderson posted,

“What luck! To be part of a group of some of my all-time favourite artists”,

This year, the event will be hosted by the renowned South African comedian and television host Trevor Noah. The list of nominees for this year’s Grammy Awards includes Taylor Swift, SZA, Victoria Monét, and Boygenius leading the pack. Taylor Swift’s album “Evermore” and SZA’s “Good Days” are both nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, while Victoria Monét’s “Jaguar” and Boygenius’ “Me & My Dog” are up for Best Alternative Music Album.

The Record Of The Year category is one of the night’s most coveted awards. The four leading nominees, Taylor Swift, SZA, Victoria Monét, and Boygenius, will be competing against Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s License,” Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky,” John Batiste’s “Freedom,” and Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever.” The winner of this category is determined by the Recording Academy members who vote for the song they believe is the best in terms of performance and production.
