Grammys Add “Hamilton,” Johnny Depp-Alice Cooper Hollywood Vampires, Bonnie Raitt, Skrillex-Diplo with Justin Bieber
The Grammy Awards line up of performers just keeps getting more and more interesting. The BB King tribute will feature Bonnie Raitt, Chris Stapleton, and Gary Clarke, Jr., which means it will be great. I just hope that it’s not at the end of the show.
The cast of “Hamilton” will appear live from Broadway as they start their show at 8pm Eastern. That’s one of producer Ken Ehrlich’s coups. “Hamilton” hasn’t yet done live TV but they’re certainly ready. For people around the country who haven’t seen this amazing show, it should blow their minds
They’ve also added the Hollywood Vampires, a group comprising Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry. (I’m told Depp likes to be called Mortdecai when he’s playing.) The Vamps released an album last September of cover songs from the 70s by Cooper, Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Maybe this appearance will launch them officially.
Justin Bieber and the people who gave him his popularity back, Skrillex and Diplo, will present “Where Are U Now” with an umlat.
Robin Thicke and Pitbull will do something. I’m just leaving it at that, no snark. Well, actually, I’m not certain what attraction is left for Robin Thicke with the audience.
Plus, Adele. Adele, Adele.
