The Grammy Awards are coming on February 8th, and the lineup looks good. LLCoolJ will host again (don’t know why– he’s blackmailing someone, obviously). But there’s plenty of good news: John Legend and Common will perform their Oscar nominated “Glory” from “Selma.” Other performers including Sam Smith, Usher, Miranda Lambert and Pharrell (he’d better do “Happy”).
Still waiting for more announcements. I’d guess that Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, and maybe even Barbra Streisand, will on the show. Ken Ehrlich might even wrangle Bob Dylan, who’s getting the MusiCares Person of the Year Award on Friday before the Grammy show. We wait, and we see.
In other music news, Streisand scored her 31st Platinum album this week with her “Partners” duets album. It’s the Most everything– most for a female, most for anyone, etc. Bravo!
