Music’s biggest night also has the opportunity to be a historic one.

Let’s keep it realmost people don’t tune in to the Grammys to see who takes home the trophies.
    The true interest is in the performances, and the lineup for the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards includes Billie Eilish, BTS and Taylor Swift.
      There might be some excitement this year, tuttavia, as there are some possibilities for records to be broken (see what I just did there?).
        Beyoncé: At the moment, music impresario Quincy Jones ha 28 statues and holds the record as the living person with the most Grammys.
        But watch out for Queen Bey.
          Going into Sunday’s ceremony, she has 24 and is nominated for eight more (including two nods for record of the year, thanks to her songBlack Paradeand her featured performance on Megan Thee Stallion'S “Savage Remix”). That means Bey could possibly tie or surpass Jones.
          Beyoncé could also tie or surpass Alison Krauss. Con 27 Grammy Awards, the bluegrass-country singer is the woman who currently has the most wins.
          The late conductor Georg Solti, che è morto in 1997, holds the overall record of 31.
          John Williams: “Guerre stellari” has been good to Williams.
          Con 25 Grammy, he is the most successful film composer of all time, taking home his first award at the 1975 Grammys for scoring the filmJaws.
          He won last year for “Guerre stellari: Galaxy’s Edge Symphonic Suite.
          A 89, Williams is now up for a possible 26th Grammy. “Guerre stellari: L'ascesa di Skywalker” is nominated for best score soundtrack for visual media.
          Jay Z: Success runs in the Carter family.
          Beyoncé’s husband holds the title of the rapper with the most Grammy wins.
          He’s nominated for three this time around to potentially add to the 22 he already has.
          The couple’s 9-year-old daughter is also up for a Grammy for her part in her mom’s song “Ragazza di pelle marrone,” making Blue Ivy one of the youngest nominees ever in the history of the Grammys.
          The Grammy Awards will broadcast Sunday on CBS at 8 p.m. E / 5 p.m. PT.

          For your weekend

          Three things to watch:
          ‘Kid 90
          "Kid 90" reveals a slice of life as a teen Hollywood star in the 1990s, with original footage from Soleil Moon Frye.

          Soleil Moon Frye is all grown up now, but back in the 1990s she was a teen celebrity who many had watched as a child star on the hit ’80s sitcomPunky Brewster.
          She videotaped her adolescence in Hollywood and New York City, locking away the footage for 20 anni. Adesso, that time capsule offers a glimpse into life for celebs before the explosion of social media.
          Kid 90begins streaming Friday on Hulu.
          "Audrey" takes a closer look at who the real Audrey Hepburn was.

          This documentary features never-before-seen footage and intimate stories from those who knew and loved Audrey Hepburn. It explores her life from childhood to her rise as an actor, fashion icon and philanthropist.
          “Audrey” starts streaming on Netflix Sunday.
          Il giudice Smith interpreta Chester, an out and proud water-polo star, nel "Genera+ion."

          This dramedy is billed asa dark yet playful half-hour following a group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality (devices and all) test deeply entrenched beliefs about life, love and the nature of family in their conservative community.
          The first three episodes drop Thursday on HBO Max, a unit of CNN’s parent company, WarnerMedia.
          Two things to listen to:
          Award-winning actress Laverne Cox, shown at the 71st Emmy Awards in LA on September 22, 2019, now has a weekly podcast series.

          Emmy winner Laverne Cox has teamed with Shondaland Audio and iHeartMedia forThe Laverne Cox Show” podcast.
          Il “L'arancione è il nuovo nero” star hosts a weekly series of intimate conversations meant to fostera spiritual makeover.
          It is my hope that this becomes a place that fosters perspectives that might inspire new behavior in each of us, which in turn gets us closer to becoming the very best versions of ourselves,” Cox said of her podcast.
          Actress Diane Guerrero's podcast is a forum for real talk on mental health.

          Cox’s formerOITNBco-star Diane Guerrero also has a new podcast.
          Yeah No, I’m Not OKfocuses on mental health.
          We want to start a mental health revolution,” Guerrero said of her podcast. “A movement that can start by talking about how we feel. One where we’re not ashamed of our own human experience.
          One thing to talk about:
          (Da sinistra) Il principe Harry e Meghan, Duchessa di Sussex, shared revelations about the royal family with Oprah Winfrey on CBS March 7.

          I cannot close out this week’s newsletter without talking about Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchessa di Sussex.
          There has already been plenty of discussion about the bombshell allegations of racism revealed in the special, così come il master class in interviewing Winfrey presented.
          Per me, it was a reminder of the time when people rallied around live TV events.
          Sicuro, we still have things like the Super Bowl, but when was the last time there was so much excitement and interest in an interview — per non parlare di the ratings bonanza?
          Chalk it up to the alchemy that happens when members of royaltywhich includes Queen Oprahcome together.

          Something to sip on

          Looking for something to jam to? We asked some of our friends around CNN which tunes people might be surprised they are in to.
          Bill Weir, CNN chief climate correspondent
          Depends on the person. Some might be surprised by Lizzo, Doja Cat and Kanye West. Others by Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings and Old 97s.
          Alison Kosik, CNN correspondent
          That would be Night Ranger — “Sister Christian.
          Christine Romans, CNN chief business correspondent
          Jackson Browne’sRunning on Empty.It’s old-school, lo so, but especially relevant in Covid. It’s a great tune for plowing forward into the unknown here.
            Boris Sanchez, CNN correspondent
            I mostly stick to reggaeton or hip-hop, so Spotify surprised me at the end of 2020 with an alert that I was in the top 0.1% of Rammstein’s listeners. Heavy, distorted and dark, with lyrics I can’t totally understand: fitting for such a bleak year.
