There’s no better way to intensify Valentine frenzy than spending it watching this year’s Grammy Awards. Majority, if not all people in this world, have their own passion for music and artists, and since first news for this awards show broke out, we can’t help but wonder who’ll be the Grammys 2016 performers at the main event.
Last week, we got news that Taylor Swift will be the opening act for this year’s show. However, this news wasn’t enough for us to get a good grip of what’s going to happen in the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. But according to Entertainment Weekly, aside from Swift, Justin Bieber and Rihanna will grace the stage for yet another fun-filled musical night.
It may be because Taylor Swift has 7 nominations this year that the management of the Grammys chose her to open the night. But other equally talented and famous artists will be seen and heard on the stage. Beside these intermission numbers, a few productions will be done as tribute to famous musicians who passed away earlier this year.
Lady Gaga prepared for a Ziggy number to pay homage to the late David Bowie. Jackson Browne and the rest of The Eagles band will play in memory of their bandmate Glenn Frey, and last but not the least, Gary Clark, Jr., Bonnie Raitt, and Chris Stapleton will join forces to do a B.B. King tribute.
In a news feature shared by the HollywoodLife.com, the presenters of the night includes Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Ryan Seacrest, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and many more.
