Katy Perry Can’t Say No To A Grammy Performance
Posted by Newson 02/01/2012 at 11:57 AM
While we’re still waiting on whether or not Katy Perry will pop up at your multiplex this summer, we do know that the record seeker will be gracing your television screens at the 54th annual Grammy Awards next Sunday. Following a last-minute cancellation at the People’s Choice Awards, Perry was confirmed as a Grammy performer on Wednesday. Drake, Gwyneth Paltrow—thanks again, Glee—Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley were also added as presenters. Largely a performance-based telecast, Perry will be joining Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Coldplay, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, Jason Aldean, the Foo Fighters and Paul McCartney, as well as recently added Adele. Nominated for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Solo Performance, the Feb. 12 show will mark Perry’s first big ticket performance following her split from Russell Brand, bringing our speculation over what she’s been up to in the wake of her break-up to an end, yet widening the pool for hair color predictions. What goes best with gold?
Surely it won’t trump the anticipation built around Adele’s first live performance following throat surgery, but do you think she’ll include footage of her fights with Russell, y’know, in the spirit of tradition?
