Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo and Jon Batiste could etch their names in the history books at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

With her song “Happier Than Ever,” Eilish would be the first artist to win record of the year three times in a row, and the only one along with Paul Simon to take home the award three times. Eilish is in a position to join Adele as the only ones to win three major categories (record, song and album of the year) twice. Previously, she won for “Bad Guy” and “Everything I Wanted.”

Trevor Noah returns for the second time as host of the Grammys. The ceremony was pushed back three months and moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas due to rising cases of COVID-19 and the omicron variant in January, when organizers cited “too many risks” to put on a performance-packed show. The show will air live from 8 pm New York (0000 GMT) on CBS and Paramount+.

If Eilish wins all seven awards she’s vying for, she’ll be the most awarded woman at the Grammys in a single year (the same would go for HER, Doja Cat and Rodrigo). But that could be a tall order, as she faces stiff competition for the top honor, album of the year, which has been expanded to 10 nominees.

Eilish is up for best musical film with her concert documentary “Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles.” But in that same category is Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s “Summer of Soul,” which recently won the Oscar for best documentary.

Even if she gets six wins, Eilish would be tied with Beyoncé and Adele, so she’d be in pretty good company.

Rodrigo has a chance to join Eilish and Christopher Cross as the only artists to win all four main categories (best new artist, album, record and song of the year). The 19-year-old “drivers license” singer could follow Eilish’s remarkable record as the second-youngest winner of album of the year with “Sour.”

The only person who could win the most Grammys in one night is Jon Batiste, who comes into the awards with 11 nominations. If he wins in eight categories, he will tie the record held by Michael Jackson and the rock band Santana.

The Oscar-winning multi-genre performer, Batiste might struggle to make it through the competition in the Record and Album of the Year categories, but triumph in jazz, American roots music and classical.

HER, who won song of the year last year for “I Can’t Breathe,” could repeat the victory. This year she is nominated for “Fight for You,” whose poignant lyrics for the “Judas and the Black Messiah” soundtrack were written by her, producer D’Mile and singer Tiara Thomas. . It already won the Academy Award for best original song last year.

The Grammys will be without superstars like Drake and The Weeknd, who have decided not to participate at all. Ye, who changed his name from Kanye West, said he was told his performance was pulled from the show.

The Foo Fighters could be in for a bittersweet moment following the recent death of their drummer, Taylor Hawkins. The band could extend its record for best rock album wins to five with “Medicine at Midnight.”

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion will battle to become the first woman to win the award for best rap performance as a solo artist. Stallion, who won the award with Beyoncé last year, is nominated for her song “Thot S (asterisk) (asterisk) (asterisk),” while Cardi B is up for her hit “Up.”

Mickey Guyton was the first black woman to be nominated for best solo country performance last year, and now she’s back in the category. If she wins, she would be the first black woman to receive that award.

In rap, Jay-Z could extend his mark as the most awarded rapper of all time, with 23 wins. He has three nominations: two for best rap song for his songwriting on DMX’s “Bath Salts” and Kanye West’s “Jail,” and one for album of the year for his guest appearance on West’s “Donda.” .

A host of artists will take the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, including Silk Sonic, HER, Chris Stapleton, Cynthia Erivo, Jack Harlow, Nas, Leslie Odom Jr. and Brothers Osborne.

Musicians vying with Eilish for the Album of the Year Grammy include Rodrigo, Jon Batiste, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, HER, Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X and Kanye West.

On the production side, Serban Ghenea could tie Al Schmitt as the engineer-mixer with the most Grammy wins, with 20. He has received a career total of 18 trophies and comes in Sunday with five nominations for his work on “Planet Doja Cat’s Her” and Lil Nas X’s “Montero.” Ghenea could also extend his record as the engineer-mixer with the most album of the year wins, with five.

Although more than 80 awards will be handed out — about 10 during the live broadcast and the rest at the so-called “Premiere,” including those in the Latin music categories — viewers will most likely tune in for the performances.
