The 57TH Annual GRAMMY Awards are shaping up to be a collaborative affair! Several duets have been added to the star-studded list of 2015 GRAMMY performances, including Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani.
Other pairings include first-time nominee Hozier and Scottish singer-songwriter Annie Lennox and Jessie J and Tom Jones.
The unlikely musical couplings join previously announced performersMadonna, Ed Sheeran, AC/DC, Sam Smith, John Legend, Usher, Pharell Williams, Common, Ariana Grande and country singer Eric Church.
Rihanna is also rumoured to be performing at the event after the singer released her new single, “FourFiveSeconds” featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney, last week.
Fans are hoping that the trio will take the stage together on Feb. 8 to perform the song for the first time.
Meanwhile, sources say that the Barbadian beauty is planning to drop her new album on GRAMMY night, though the “Diamonds” singer has yet to confirm any of the reports.
Duets have long been a staple of the GRAMMYs stage, with strange musical pairings being the order of the day. In 2001, unlikely duo Elton John and Eminem made headlines around the world when they performed the rapper's hit song "Stan," and last year, Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams teamed up with legend Stevie Wonder for a medley of "Get Lucky," "Another Star" and "Around the World.
Indeed, last year’s awards show turned out to be one for the ages in terms of megawatt collaborations after music power-couple Beyoncé and Jay Z performed a steamy rendition of their duet, “Drunk In Love.”
This year, LL Cool J returns to host the awards show, which will broadcast live on City, while Entertainment hosts Dina Pugliese and Ed Robertson will be on the GRAMMYs red carpet bringing you up-to-the-minute fashion updates and exclusive interviews.
