If you weren’t planning on tuning into the Grammy Awards next weekend, you might want to reconsider. Rumor now has it that another big name has joined the already splashy bill of performers: Beyoncé. Because in this our Year of Yoncé, how could she not? Grammy show producer Ken Ehrlich feigned ignorance when approached by the Los Angeles Times, going only so far as to say that “the potential is there for that kind of moment.” He continued:
“Let’s put it this way… We have a really great history that goes back to the early days of Destiny’s Child. She’s Incredible. She is so into what it is that she does and making sure that everybody who sees her walks away saying ‘Wow’.”
It’s not a solid confirmation but it’s also no denial. And one thing does seem for sure: he is not nearly as good at keeping secrets as Beyoncé.
With or without a Queen Bey performance (she and Jay Z are up for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Part II (On The Run)”, so chances are good she’ll at least be in attendance) the Grammys are sure to be a star-studded event. Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk (performing Random Access Memories material live for the first time), Lorde, Pharrell Williams, Metallica, Katy Perry and more already confirmed as performers, and word is that Madonna is slated to make a cameo during someone else’s performance. The 2014 Grammys will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 26th at 8PM EST.
