Jack White To Perform At Grammys After 9-Year Break [Video]
Jack White (formerly of The White Stripes) will be performing at the Grammys next month for the first time in nine years.
MSN reports that White will be joined by Carrie Underwood and the Lumineers on stage next month at the Grammy Awards Show. The Recording Academy announced the newest lineup on Thursday, which also includes Fun., The Black Keys, and Taylor Swift. The Grammys will take place on February 10 in Los Angeles.
White is up for Album of the Year, and the Lumineers are up for Best New Artist. Newcomer Ed Sheeran and Elton John will perform together, as well. Sheeran is up for Song of the Year for his single “The A Team.”
Country singers Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley will also perform, as will The Black Keys, Rihanna, and Mumford & Sons.
In the lead with six nominations each are Frank Ocean, Jay-Z, Fun., Kanye West, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, and Mumford & Sons.
White could win for his debut solo album “Blunderbuss,” or possibly his song “Freedom 21.” He already has nine Grammys on his mantle, so what’s a few more? The news of his performance was greeted warmly by fans on Twitter, though some expressed “feeling old” that it has been nine years since he performed along with Meg White as The White Stripes in 2004 (video below).
