Justin Bieber Will Perform At The Grammys

Along with Skrillex and Diplo.

February 04, 2016

The list of acts playing during the Grammys keeps getting longer and more star-studded. Initially it included Adele, the Weeknd, and Kendrick Lamar; since then it has expanded to include Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers' tribute to David Bowie and a performance from Justin Bieber, Diplo, and Skrillex. In case you forgot, Bieber's Grammy-nominated "Where Are Ü Now," which appeared on Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü, helped reintroduce the singer to the top 40. Since then, he has scored three consecutive No. 1 singles.

Diplo explained the origin of "Where Are Ü Now" to The FADER last year. "Justin had kinda hit rock bottom with things," the producer remembered. "From the press, from jail, and from, like, taking his pants down at an awards show or something. I wasn't even paying attention, but I know that he wasn't very cool. And I was trying to really help Skrillex rebrand his own project, too. If nothing else, I thought working with Bieber would be the most noticeable thing we could do. It would be a great record, and it would make everyone really fucked up."
