Joni Mitchell Set To Perform At 2024 Grammys

Joni Mitchell is poised to grace the stage at the upcoming Grammy Awards, marking a momentous occasion in her illustrious six-decade-long career.

The official confirmation from the Recording Academy has stirred anticipation, with Joni Mitchell herself expressing her enthusiasm for the forthcoming performance. The much-anticipated awards ceremony, slated for Sunday, February 4, promises a stellar lineup featuring the likes of U2, Burna Boy, Billy Joel, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo.

Having clinched nine Grammy victories since her debut in 1969 with the Best Folk Performance award for ‘Clouds,’ Joni Mitchell’s journey through the music industry has been nothing short of legendary. Her most recent triumph came in 2022 for ‘Joni Mitchell Archives – Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963–1967),’ earning the accolade for Best Historical Album.

Adding another layer to her musical tapestry, Joni Mitchell’s 2022 surprise set at the Newport Folk Festival led to a nomination in the Best Folk Album category for ‘Joni Mitchell at Newport,’ a live recording capturing the essence of her performance. The Newport set, featuring a 13-song “JONI JAM” session, saw the collaboration with Brandi Carlile on iconic tracks like ‘Carey,’ ‘A Case Of You,’ and ‘Big Yellow Taxi.’

Post the Newport appearance, Joni Mitchell once again stepped into the limelight with her first full headline set in over two decades at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state in June 2023. Backed by a talented ensemble, including Marcus Mumford, Mitchell delivered a captivating 24-song performance that spanned her entire career, seamlessly weaving in a selection of soulful covers.
