Rhino congratulates Joni Mitchell, who shortly after earning her 10th GRAMMY Award yesterday, made history with her first-ever performance on the GRAMMYs stage. The Rock & Rock Hall of Famer, Kennedy Center Honoree and Gershwin-prize winner, who recently celebrated her 80th birthday, dazzled the audience with a “powerful performance” (Pitchfork) of her timeless classic “Both Sides Now,” supported by an all-star cast of “Joni Jammers” including Brandi Carlile, Jacob Collier, Lucius, Blake Mills, Allison Russell, and SistaStrings. Mitchell “seemed to stop time” (New York Times) and “brought the tears” (Rolling Stone) during what the Associated Press called “an emotional highlight” of the evening. “The entire audience rose to their feet” (CNN) after the moving performance, which “felt rich with gravitas and grace” (Washington Post). “In performing an instant-classic awards-show set, she affirmed her timelessness—and her influence on a new generation of artists,” writes the Atlantic.

Mitchell, who was previously honored with the Recording Academy’s “Lifetime Achievement” Award in 2002, also received her 10th GRAMMY Award for Best Folk Album with Joni Mitchell at Newport (Rhino), the live recording of her surprise return to the stage at the 2022 Newport Folk Festival. The album was produced by Mitchell and Brandi Carlile, features new live performances of Mitchell’s most beloved songs including “Big Yellow Taxi,” “A Case Of You,” and “Both Sides Now.” Listen to Joni Mitchell At Newport here:

Last week, Mitchell announced two headline shows at The Hollywood Bowl set for October 19th and 20th, 2024, marking her first headline shows in Los Angeles in nearly 25 years. The anticipated performances, which sold out just seconds after going on sale, will feature Brandi Carlile and the Joni Jam. For more information, please visit
