Ahead of tonight’s 65th Grammy Awards, the celebrity seating plan has been unveiled. As TMZ reports, both CBS and the Recording Academy have posted photos and videos of the show’s table placements. Some of them find happy (and heavily nominated) couples sitting together as expected. Other pairings are more out of the box, and sure to make for some interesting conversations.
They’re not a married pair, but they have created scores of incredible music together and separately over the years. This is likely why Taylor Swift and producer Jack Antonoff landed beside one another tonight. Elsewhere, Beyoncé and Jay-Z will be keeping each other company – when the mother of three isn’t on stage accepting awards, that is.
On the less expected side are Cardi B and John Legend, as well as LL Cool J and Shania Twain. The formerly mentioned artists each have multiple children (the R&B star just welcomed his third with his wife Chrissy Teigen) which may give them something to talk about. The latter duo, however, may have a more difficult time making conversation.
A seating arrangement that we’re certainly happy to see is Lizzo and Adele. Both singers have previously gushed about the love they have for each other. Their reactions to tonight’s antics are sure to be meme-worthy. Other stars and their table partners include Viola Davis and Queen Latifah, Black Thought and Chris Stapleton, and finally, Chuck D and Flavor Flav.
Interestingly, some others were sitting by themselves on the floor plan. Among them are Bad Bunny, Harry Styles, Olivia Rodrigo, and Ice T. Of course, this is all subject to change before the cameras begin rolling tonight.
The seating for the ceremony is certainly interesting. However, what’s really got the internet talking is the rumoured contents of 2023’s gift bag. Attendees are allegedly taking home upwards of $60,000 in luxury prizes following the show, including a gift card for liposuction. According to Page Six, other items on the list are a Bugaboo Fox 3 Stroller for any expecting parents, plus an exclusive pair of TurboFlex sunglasses.
Miage skincare worth over $500, a robotic cleaner, and a $325 ReFa shower are also in the package. Overall, the swag bag consists of more than 50 astounding items, making it almost as impressive as the performances are sure to be.
This year’s list of nominees and presenters is undeniably exciting. Of course, Beyoncé, Adele, and Kendrick Lamar came out on top with their impressive numbers. Several other artists are finally getting the flowers they deserve as well. Additionally, Cardi B, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Jill Biden are among those handing out the prestigious trophies tonight.
