Some of the biggest names in showbiz have already started arriving at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.

Pop sensation Doja Cat – who recently threatened to quit music – and Orange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox were two of the early arrivals on the Las Vegas red carpet.

Doja Cat – real name Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini – looked incredible as she put up a storm for the cameras before finding out if she’ll be taking home any awards later in the evening.

The American rapper is nominated for eight GRAMMY Awards: Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Melodic Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

The 26-year-old Say So singer wowed crowds in a statement turquoise dress and matching bag outside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Actress Laverne Cox also stunned on the red carpet as she posed for the cameras in a chic black dress – with cheeky sheer panels showing off the star’s long legs.

First-time contestant Olivia Rodrigo, who dominated the charts last year, opted for a chic floor-length black dress and matching gloves for the star-studded performance.

The former Disney star has received seven Grammy nominations thanks to her debut album Sour and her hits Drivers License, Déjà Vu and Good 4u.

The 64th annual ceremony will be hosted by The Daily Show host Trevor Noah at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will feature a series of live performances and surprise guests.

However, five-time nominee Kanye West was set to be one of the cast members, but a representative confirmed he was pulled from his scheduled appearance due to his “worrying online behavior” in recent weeks.

West’s team revealed they received a call from organizers informing them that the rapper had “sadly” been dropped from the cast.

But Sunday night’s ceremony will include a tribute to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, organizers have confirmed, following his death at the age of 50 last weekend.

The band were scheduled to perform at the Grammys but pulled out after also canceling all of their upcoming tour dates “in light of the devastating loss”.

Among other acts set to perform at this year’s event are Oscar winner Eilish, Lil Nas X and Rodrigo.

K-pop megastars BTS, Jack Harlow, Brandi Carlile and award-winning country band Brothers Osbourne are also on the bill.

The Grammys will also feature a special segment raising awareness of the war in Ukraine.

The panel didn’t say what form the segment would take, but confirmed that it would offer viewers an opportunity to “take action and contribute to the global Stand Up For Ukraine campaign.”

The event was originally scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on January 31, but was postponed as the Omicron variant spread across the US.

Multi-genre performer Jon Batiste has the most nominations with 11 but faces competition from the likes of Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo.

Elsewhere, The Weeknd claimed three nominations, despite saying last year he would not allow his label to submit his music in protest at the event’s controversial voting system.

In response to the widespread criticism, the Recording Academy made several important changes to the award process, including the elimination of controversial examination boards.

The panel said nominations for the general and genre sections would now be voted on by a majority of members rather than by anonymous panels of experts within the Academy.

Critics had argued it left too much power in the hands of faceless and unaccountable committees.

Artists of color have long said the system caused them to miss out on the more prestigious categories.
