This just in! Beyoncé is slated to perform on Sunday night’s Grammys. According to US Weekly, the star is slated to return to the stage with a tamer performance than last year’s “Drunk in Love” show with Jay Z.
Beyonce will be joined by Oscar hopefuls John Legend and Common to sing “Take My Hand Precious Lord,” which will then turn into the nominated song from Selma, “Glory.” The latter song has been racking up nominations and awards, and it’s expected to win the Oscar later in the month.
It’s not surprising that Beyoncé would take the stage once again. Her self-titled album has garnered six award nominations this year, and her last performance at the Grammys caused buzz for weeks after the awards aired.
As far as nominations go, Beyoncé, Pharrell, and Sam Smith topped the Grammys, with six nominations each.
Common spoke to the publication about the performance that will take place on Sunday.
“We do have an incredible introduction to our performance. A segue into our song ‘Glory,’ as a tribute to Selma, being done by the great Beyoncé. That’s one of the greatest talents you can have, helping us segue into it. To co-create a performance with someone like her. It’s good.”
According to a source, Beyoncé will be introduced by Gwyneth Paltrow. Beyoncé joins other performers of the night, including Katy Perry, Kanye West, Madonna, Sam Smith, and Ariana Grande. It’s rumored that Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney will be hitting the stage to perform their song “FourFiveSeconds,” which will be available on Rihanna’s upcoming album.
Rihanna, Kanye, and Paul McCartney aren’t the only ones collaborating on stage. Beck will perform alongside Chris Martin, and Sam Smith will perform with Mary J. Blige.
People seem excited that Beyoncé is returning to the big stage.
