Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder, Miley Cyrus to Present at Grammys
The 57th annual Grammy Awards already promises a ton of star power thanks to its previously announced performers, and with just a little more than 24 hours to go before Music’s Biggest Night, the award show revealed who will serve as presenters at the Staples Center ceremony: Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift (who will present Best New Artist) and many more.
Also tabbed to hand out awards are Smokey Robinson, Nile Rodgers, Nick Jonas, Jennifer Hudson, the Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb, the Weeknd, Enrique Iglesias and Keith Urban. They’ll be joined by actors Gwyneth Paltrow, Anna Kendrick, Jamie Foxx, Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez and Sia’s “Elastic Heart” star Shia LaBeouf.
The 57th annual Grammys will also feature performances by Beck with Chris Martin, Beyoncé’s show opener with Common and John Legend, Madonna, the super-trio of Rihanna, Paul McCartney and West debuting “FourFiveSeconds” live (as well as “a never-before-seen solo performance” by the rapper), Rolling Stone cover star Sam Smith, Super Bowl halftime act Katy Perry, Adam Levine performing alongside his fellow Voice mentor Gwen Stefani, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, AC/DC (possibly with drummer Chris Slade), Ariana Grande, Sia, Ed Sheeran and many more.
While it was assumed that Taylor Swift would perform at the Grammys – where she’s nominated for three Grammys including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Shake It Off” – she alerted fans February 2nd that she would only present at this year’s ceremony.
“A lot of you have been asking about the Grammys this week and I just wanted to give you an update. I’m really excited to be nominated for 3 Grammys this year and even more excited that I’ll be there having a dance party/rage fest in the audience,” Swift wrote. “Since my whole life is wrapped up and entangled in the planning of The 1989 World Tour right now, I’m not going to be performing on the Grammys this year. I need this time to focus only on the tour.”
