Paul McCartney, Rihanna And Kanye West To Perform At Grammys … But Why?

Sir Paul McCartney is a regular at the Grammy awards ceremony and the Mirror is reporting that this year’s ceremony will see McCartney take the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 8. This year, however, the Mail reports that a source told the Sun that the 72-year-old McCartney will be joining Rihanna and Kanye West for a rendition of their collaboration, “Four Five Seconds.”

Former Beatles star McCartney performed at last year’s ceremony alongside his Beatles band-mate Ringo Starr, and has scooped an incredible 18 Grammys throughout his lengthy career. A source told the Sun that 26-year-old Rihanna is “seriously pleased to have bagged a big slot at The Grammys and two huge names to kick off her comeback.”

“Paul McCartney is a Grammys regular and it will give Rihanna serious kudos to have a Beatle backing her on stage. It is going to be a huge Grammys moment.”

Rihanna has had more than a two-year gap since her last album was released in 2012 so having McCartney playing keyboard on her new record will doubtless provide the 26-year-old pop princess with some much needed exposure and a boost as she hits the comeback trail.
