Pink, Lady Gaga, and Patti Lupone Ensure This Grammys Will Be Gay-Friendly

Music’s biggest night will also be a big night for fans of some great pop divas.

According to a press release from the Recording Academy, Grammy winners Lady Gaga and Pink will be performing during the 2018 Grammy telecast, scheduled for January 28. Pink and Gaga will be joined by rapper Childish Gambino, who boasts several big-time nominations.

Because the show is moving back to New York after 15 years, the show will feature Patti Lupone and Dear Evan Hansen star Ben Platt in a tribute to Broadway. Lupone will perform “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” while Platt will sing a number from the epic West Side Story.

Given that “A Million Reasons” is nominated for a Grammy award, look for Gaga to trot out yet another performance of the Joanne single.

The Grammys drew praise this year for nominating only women and people of color in the major categories. Several LGBTQ artists also made this year’s nominations list.
