Another January day, another round of GRAMMY performer announcements. Metallica, Lorde, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke with Chicago will take the stage later this month.
“I think one of the first lines I wrote from that song,” Lorde told Radio.com, “which was, ‘We’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams,’ was in a diary that I had when I was like 11 or 12, so young.”
For one night only, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will share the stage in honor of The Beatles first performance on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’
Take a closer look at the nominees for the Album of the Year: Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Daft Punk, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Sara Bareilles. A panel of music experts weighed in on each album to tell you the stories behind their pop culture impact.
It seems for Daft Punk’s second GRAMMY performance — their first being back in 2008 — they’re bringing along a few of their famous friends.
