Broadway will get its moment in the spotlight at this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, which returns to New York for the first time in 15 years.

The festivities will be held January 28 at Madison Square Garden and will include a special Broadway tribute honoring the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein. Two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone, last seen on Broadway in the musical War Paint, will perform "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" from Webber's Evita — the musical that earned LuPone her first Tony Award in 1980 for her leading performance as Eva Perón.

Ben Platt, the Tony-winning original star of Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen, will also perform music from West Side Story to celebrate the legendary Bernstein score. Platt is also among this year's nominees, as the lead vocalist on the Dear Evan Hansen cast recording, nominated for Best Musical Theater Album.

Hosted by James Corden, the 60th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden on Sunday, January 28, at 7:30pm ET (4:30pm PT) on CBS.
