Joni Mitchell is all set to perform at the Grammy Awards this weekend, marking the first time in her impressive six-decade career.
The Recording Academy confirmed the news, and Joni Mitchell herself shared the excitement. The awards ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, February 4, and will feature performances from other artists like U2, Burna Boy, Billy Joel, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo.
With nine Grammy wins under her belt, Joni Mitchell’s journey began in 1969 with the Best Folk Performance award for ‘Clouds.’ Her most recent victory was in 2022 for Joni Mitchell Archives – Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963–1967), named Best Historical Album.

Recognizing her enduring contributions to music, Mitchell received the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002. This year, she is nominated in the Best Folk Album category for Joni Mitchell at Newport, a live album capturing her surprise set at the legendary music festival in 2022. The performance featured a 13-song “JONI JAM” set, with Brandi Carlile joining on tracks like ‘Carey,’ ‘A Case Of You,’ and ‘Big Yellow Taxi.’
After the Newport appearance, Joni Mitchell returned to the spotlight with her first full headline set in over two decades at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state in June 2023. With Carlile and a group of collaborators, including Marcus Mumford, Mitchell treated the audience to a 24-song set spanning her career and including a selection of covers.
