Grammys: Beyonce and Jay Z to Perform

A CBS promo that aired Jan. 19 confirmed the duo would hit the stage Jan. 26.

After some speculation last week, Beyonce has been confirmed to be taking the Grammy Awards stage on Jan. 26, alongside hubby Jay Z.

The appearance was confirmed in a commercial that aired on CBS on Jan. 19, listing the married couple among the performers of the upcoming ceremony. Taylor Swift, Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Daft Punk, Paul McCartney, Katy Perry and Kendrick Lamar are among the many other performers taking the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles next weekend.

The Grammy Awards has yet to announce the latest lineup additions, and whether or not Bey and Jay will collaborate onstage. Although Jay Z pops up on his wife’s latest hit single, “Drunk In Love,” the rapper is also entering the upcoming Grammy Awards with nine nominations, including best rap album for last year’s Magna Carta … Holy Grail.

On Friday, the Los Angeles Time reported that Beyonce and Madonna would be making surprise appearances at the 56th Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Madonna has yet to be formally added to the bill.

Beyonce’s upcoming Grammy moment will mark the singer’s first televised performance since the launch of her self-titled fifth album last month. Current sales for Beyonce stand at 1.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Madonna Braves The Cold Of New York On Crutches

Moving slow, but still managing to get around town, Madonna set out today (January 17), aided by a pair of crutches in New York City.

The 55-year-old songstress took on the snow of the Big Apple in a long black winter coat with a fur coat, black snow pants and a pair of regular running shoes

The “Like a Virgin” singer injured her leg after suffering a fall while on vacation in Switzerland over the holidays, and hopefully she will be up-and-at-em soon!

We hope that Madonna’s leg injury will not also detract from her singing career, as she is set to continue writing and performing the soundtrack of family reality series “Dancing on Ice,” which continues throughout this winter season.

Madonna and Beyonce appear to have their eyes locked on the Grammy stage.

The pop superstars are expected to be among the big surprise moments during next week’s ceremony, according to two sources with knowledge of the plans.

“Should she be on the show this year?” he continued. “I would think that the potential is there for that kind of moment.”

Other Grammy performers include Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr; Daft Punk with Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder; Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons; Lorde; Katy Perry; Pink and Fun’s Nate Ruess; Robin Thicke and Chicago; Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; Kacey Musgraves; John Legend; Taylor Swift; Keith Urban and Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Blake Shelton.
