Other Grammy-nominated artists coming to the D.C. area are Justin Timberlake, Kings of Leon and J. Cole, who will be performing at venues across the city over the next two months.

Fans will get the chance to see their favorite acts up close after watching them at the Grammys, which airs live on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 8 p.m.

Lorde, the 17-year-old singer/songwriter from New Zealand, is nominated for several awards after enjoying worldwide success this past year with her break-out song “Royals”. She will be performing at the Grammys for the first time.

Lorde will enchant audiences at the Echostage in Northeast Washington City on March 7 along with Maryland singer/songwriter Lo-Fang, who will open the show.

After months in the headlines following his controversial music video and MTV Video Music Awards performance, Robin Thicke will take over the stage at the Grammys.

He has received several nominations for his catchy hit single “Blurred Lines”.

The R&B artist will be performing at the Patriot Center at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA on Feb. 27. His opening acts are DJ Cassidy, K. Michelle and British pop star Jessie J.

Despite Thicke’s big year, R&B veteran Justin Timberlake is a stronger contender to win in the Best Pop Vocal Album category.

The “Suit & Tie” singer made his musical comeback in 2013 with the release of his album “The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience”. He will perform at the Verizon Center in Northwest Washington on Feb. 24.

Rock band Kings of Leon will also be performing at the Verizon Center on Feb. 21. Gary Clark, Jr., who will make his performance debut at the Grammys and is also nominated this year, will open the show.

Hip-hop artist J. Cole is set to play at the DAR Constitution Hall in Northwest Washington on Jan. 30. He is nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for the song “Power Trip” featuring Miguel.

The 56th annual Grammy Awards will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The ceremony will be hosted by Grammy winner and actor LL Cool J.
