By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Ready to see your favorite artists covered head-to-toe at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards? According to ABC News, CBS has issued a memo outlining wardrobe guidelines for performers and presenters.

Per Deadline, the rules heavily limit skin. “Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic,” the memo states. Please avoid exposing bare flesh under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic.”

If that wasn’t enough, logos and language are also being censored. “Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts. Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. ”

The Grammys have been a hub for controversial looks in the past. In 2000, Jennifer Lopez wore her famous, fully-exposed Versace gown while Pink rocked a nude bodysuit in 2010. Will performers like Rihanna adhere to the wardrobe guidelines? Tune in to find out.
