Grammys 2018: James Corden Promises Huge Opening Number as the Show Returns to New York City

Playing Celebs at Grammys to Wear White Roses in Solidarity with 'Times Up’ Movement

As the Grammys return to New York City after 15 years on the West Coast, James Corden is promising some explosive performances. 

Corden, who returns as host of the Grammys this Sunday, told Inside Edition that there will be "a very, very big number” as the opening and E! reports U2, Kendrick Lamar and Dave Chappelle will kick off the show. 

As the big stars arrive at Madison Square Garden for the event, many will be wearing white roses to show their solidarity with the #TimesUp movement.

And inside "the world's most famous arena," the seat cards are in place inside. Beyoncé and Jay-Z are in the front row, with Miley Cyrus just behind Elton John, who just this week announced he will be retiring from the music biz after a worldwide farewell tour that will take him three years to complete.
