“Music’s Biggest Night,” the 2021 GRAMMY Awards, is just days away and rehearsals are already underway in preparation for the much-anticipated show. 

The GRAMMYs and CBS offered fans a sneak peek inside the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards with behind-the-scenes rehearsal photos of two of the night’s most sought-after performances from Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris. 

Lambert is seen rehearsing for the show at the STAPLES Center sporting a casual jean jacket and gold cowboy boots while surrounded by colorful flowers at her feet and hanging from the ceiling. 

Morris’ rehearsal photos showcase a surprise guest – John Mayer! Morris, who has previously cited Mayer as a dream collaboration, appears to share the stage with him, however, the song they’re performing remains unknown. 

Lambert, a two-time GRAMMY winner, is currently nominated for three GRAMMYs, including Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song for “Bluebird” and Best Country Album for Wildcard

Morris, who won her first GRAMMY at the 59th GRAMMY Awards, is currently nominated for Best Country Song for “The Bones.” 

Lambert, Morris and Mayer will take the stage alongside fellow performers Mickey Guyton, Bad Bunny, Black Pumas, Cardi B, BTS, Brandi Carlile, DaBaby, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, HAIM, Brittany Howard, Lil Baby, Dua Lipa, Chris Martin, John Mayer, Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone, Roddy Ricch, Harry Styles, and Taylor Swift.
