The Grammys are coming, the Grammys are coming! And just in time for music's big night, the awards show has added a slew of additional performers and presenters for Sunday's extravaganza.
First up, everyone take a deep breath, because music's royal couple, Jay Z and Beyonce, have been confirmed that they will grace us with a duo performance. Yes, dreams can come true!
OK. Now, for the next bit of news. The awards are going a little bit country with Gary Clark Jr. and Hunter Hayes joining the bill, and they're also going a little bit rock 'n roll with Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham taking the stage -- together! (Believe it or not, this will mark the first Grammys performance for Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age. Actually, I can believe it.)
They join the previously announced performers that include Best Pop Solo Performance nominees Sara Bareilles and Katy Perry, who are squaring off with very similar-sounding self-empowerment anthems (for "Brave" and "Roar," respectively). Also taking the stage are Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr (a potential Beatles reunion?!), Daft Punk, Blake Shelton, Stevie Wonder, Robin Thicke, Taylor Swift and, oh, just about everyone else in the music biz.
The newly announced presenters include Oscar-nominee (and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman) Jared Leto, Anna Faris, Ryan Seacrest, Yoko Ono (yep, pretty sure there's a Beatles thing happening), Jamie Foxx, Neil Patrick Harris, and pretty much any other celeb who doesn't mind partying on a Sunday night.
The top nominee of the evening is Jay Z (no surprise there), but also look out for Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Kendrick Lamar to bring home some serious hardware.
The Grammys air Sunday on CBS at 8/7c.
