Jagger to perform live at the Grammys
Grammy Award winning rock legend and Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Mick Jagger, will perform live at the Grammy Awards for the first time. Accompanied by award winner Raphael Saadiq and his band, Jagger will perform as part of the telecast’s annual In Memoriam tribute, which pays homage to members of the music community who have passed away in the previous year. In his first-ever live appearance on the Grammy stage, Jagger and Saadiq will honour one of his long-time idols, recently deceased Grammy winner Solomon Burke. Jagger has appeared only once before on the Grammy telecast (with the Rolling Stones), via satellite from London during the 28th awards in 1986, when Eric Clapton presented the Stones with The Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Jagger and Saadiq join previously announced performers and nominees Arcade Fire, Eminem, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Muse, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Usher, with Jaden Smith, BoB, Bruno Mars, Janelle Monáe, Drake and Rihanna; and Cee Lo Green, with Gwyneth Paltrow and the Jim Henson Company Puppets. Current three-time Grammy nominee Dierks Bentley, nine-time Grammy winner and current nominee Norah Jones, singer/actor Selena Gomez, two-time Grammy winner and actor LL Cool J, current nominees Nicki Minaj and Blake Shelton will appear as presenters. Arcade Fire, Bieber, BoB, Lambert, Mars, Monáe, Muse, Paltrow, and Smith will also be performing on the telecast for the first time, and all five Album Of The Year nominees are set to perform on music’s biggest night—Arcade Fire, Eminem, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, and Perry.
The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will take place live on February 13, at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will be broadcast in high definition and 5.1 surround sound on the CBS Television Network from 8 – 11.30 pm (ET/PT), and locally on CNC3, at 9 pm. The show also will be supported on radio worldwide via Westwood One, and covered online at GRAMMY.com and CBS.com, and on YouTube at www.youtube.com/thegrammys.
