If so, why is it for a movie soundtrack? Speaking of films, will the soundtrack of "A Star is Born" shine, marking this the year of movie music? Or, with so many new female artists nominated — such as Cardi B, Dua Lipa and Jorja Fox — will this be the year women own the ceremony? [What if there were only one Grammy?] We’ll find out soon, but what we’re most excited for are the evening’s live performances.

Here is how we’ve ranked the performances, from best to worst.
