Grammy Awards Performers: Eminem, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera
The Grammy Awards will, as always, be a performance packed show that will feature some interesting pairings and some highly anticipated performances.
The Grammy Awards performers this year include: Dr. Dre and Eminem, Bob Dylan with The Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons (doing a tribute to acoustic music), Barbra Stresiand (singing one of her 70’s era ballads), Mick Jagger, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, B.o.B and Bruno Mars, Usher, Jaden Smith, Esperanza Spalding, Arcade Fire, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, Martina McBride, Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine), Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Muse, Rihanna and Drake, and Janelle Monae.
With all of those performers there is no way they can each do a song of their own or the show would be 10 hours long. This is where things can get a little odd with the Grammy Awards when they pair up groups. Some make sense like Dre and Eminem, B.o.B and Bruno Mars and Usher, Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith. Rihanna and Drake together is a good choice. Cee Lo Green is teaming up with Gwyneth Paltrow to sing “Forget You” and they will be accompanied by puppets . . . that is just odd.
In the case of ‘one of these is not like the others’ Yolanda Adams, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride and Florence Welch will do a tribute to Aretha Franklin. Those are some seriously big voices and they are somehow supposed to blend in with the softer, more edgy Florence Welch? This could be great, even fantastic, or it could be an absolute train wreck. One thing I think we can count on is that after Christina Aguilera’s problem with the national anthem at the Super Bowl, she will be prepared and come out with a strong showing.
It should be an interesting night of performances. I personally look forward to seeing Eminem, Lady Gaga, Cee Lo with Gwyneth and Bob Dylan the most. I also am curious about the tribute to Aretha.
Tune in tonight at 8PM on CBS to watch all the performances.
