Days ahead of the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, Pandora is hosting its Live Countdown To the Grammys event, where nominees Brittany Howard, Haim, and CHIKA are all set to perform. The virtual event airs on Pandora’s website at 9:00 pm EST on March 11.
Recording Academy Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. will host the event and lead a roundtable discussion with all three acts. Each artist will participate remotely – with Haim and CHIKA performing from Los Angeles and Howard joining in from Nashville.
Viewers will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of unique activities throughout the program, including posing in a red carpet-inspired photo booth, testing their musical knowledge in a pre-show trivia game, and connecting with other fans via an interactive chat feature. A limited number of artist merchandise will also be gifted to attendees on a first-come, first-served code redemption basis.
SiriusXM will offer a replay of the evening’s performances on The Grammy Channel (ch. 104) beginning at noon EST on March 13.

Performer Brittany Howard is among the top contenders at this year’s Grammy Awards, with five nominations. The Alabama Shakes frontwoman’s solo debut, Jamie, is up for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
Howard will compete against Haim in the Best Rock Performance category (for “Stay High”), which, for the first time ever, is comprised entirely of female artists. “Stay High” is also up for Best Rock Song, while track “Goat Head” is up for Best R&B Performance. Howard’s diverse musical influences are further cemented with her nomination for Best American Roots Performance, for the track “Short and Sweet.”
The 63rd annual Grammy Awards air live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on CBS on Sunday, March 14.
