The Grammy Awards are juicing up for their CBS broadcast on January 26, 2014. Producer Ken Ehrlich is putting together his usual performance segments that match and combine unlikely stars- and some that just never have been on TV together before.
Just announced: Kendrick Lamar will play with Imagine Dragons. Pink is going to sing with Nat Ruess for the first time–their hit is nominated even though it came out in 2012.
There’s also an all star country set up with Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and newish guy Blake Shelton. That should be amazing.
Also, Daft Punk will do “Get Lucky.” They’d better bring Nile Rodgers with them.
LL Cool J is hosting again.
Ehrlich really has to work magic this year since the Grammy voters– whoever they are– managed to snub Justin Timberlake out of the top 3– Album, Song or Record of the Year. Timberlake’s “20/20” albums should have been the centerpiece of the Grammys this year. I can’t imagine CBS is pleased, let alone JT.
