Grammy winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and his cast will perform a number from the Grammy-nominated musical “Hamilton” at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy announced Wednesday.
The performance will be transmitted from the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York, marking one of only four times that a Grammy telecast has featured a performance live via satellite.
Previous Broadway productions featured on the Grammys include “Godspell” (1972); ‘The Magic Show” (1975); “Sophisticated Ladies” (1982); “La Cage Aux Folles” (1984); “Will Rogers Follies” (1992); “Riverdance” and “Bring In Da Noise, Bring In Da Funk” (1997); and, most recently, “American Idiot” (2010).
Previously announced performers for ceremony later this month include Adele, James Bay, Andra Day, Ellie Goulding, Sam Hunt, Tori Kelly, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, and The Weeknd.
Two-time Grammy winner LL Cool J will host the presentation for the fifth consecutive year. The 58th Annual Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 15 and be broadcast live on CBS.
