Katy Perry's new song is called “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Bob Marley’s grandson Skip Marley. She will debut it live at the Grammys on Sunday night. You can hear it here right now!
The Recording Academy has finally confirmed Sunday night’s GRAMMYs will feature tributes to Prince and George Michael, both of whom died in 2016. "George Michael and Prince were pop icons who showcased rare musical genius and otherworldly charisma," Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, says. "The passings of two such creative innovators were a huge loss for the creative community; The Recording Academy is humbled to pay homage to their tremendous legacies on the GRAMMY stage." So far there’s no word on what artists will take part in either tribute. With James Corden as your host, the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards will air Sunday night at 8 pm on CBS.
Beyoncé will perform on the GRAMMYs this weekend, but a source said that she’d be moving slower than usual because she’s “very pregnant.” Apparently the routine for Sunday’s show is constantly changing, and word has it Bey won’t make a final decision about it until Saturday night. She’ll use an elaborate digital screen onstage to camouflage the slower pace. There’ll also be cameos during the performance. One source says Mrs. Carter has made it clear, “She’ll be taking it easier than normal.” Other performers include Adele, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and Metallica, The Weeknd and Daft Punk, Chance the Rapper, John Legend and Cynthia Erivo, A Tribe Called Quest with Anderson .Paak, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, Alicia Keys and Maren Morris, Little Big Town, Demi Lovato, Andra Day and Tori Kelly are teaming up to do a Bee Gees tribute, Kelsea Ballerini, Lukas Graham and Gary Clark, Jr.
Christina Aguilera is just about ready to let the genie out of the bottle -- and give us a glimpse at her comeback album. She's tweeted a drawing of a CD case with the message "putting the finishing touches on my heart," a hint that the set is almost finished. She's been working on it since early 2014. She also recently told the Hollywood Reporter, “I really started toward the middle and end of last year to really buckle down and meet with people I want to work with and people I have never worked with before.” That list includes Elle King, Ricky Reed and Alex Da Kid.
