Grammy performers announced
From The Associated Press:
NEW YORK (AP) — Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars both have six Grammy nominations, including album of the year. And now both acts will perform at the award show.
The Recording Academy announced Thursday that Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson will also hit the stage at 54th annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12. Kanye West leads with seven nominations.
Adele is also up for six Grammys, including album, song and record of the year. She’s currently recovering from surgery on her vocal cords and her sophomore album, “21,” was last year’s top seller.
Other multiple nominees include Skrillex, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Chris Brown, Bon Iver and Mumford & Sons. The Grammys will air live on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
I'm looking forward to some of those performances, though not so much the awards part of the show.
Those of us in the office during the show usually predict winners (for bragging rights only). I get teased for being the most enthusiastic about making picks but generally picking the fewest winners. It seems the Grammy tends to go to musicians I've never heard of or know little about. (Though I did love when Arcade Fire won Album of the Year last year, because I do really like that album.)
