The 60th anniversary of the Grammy Awards is quickly approaching & the producers are putting no stops on making it a memorable one, announced some heavy hitters added to the list of performers. Scheduled to take the stage at Madison Square Garden in New York later this month will be Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith and the legendary U2. The acts will join already announced artists including Cardi B, Childish Gambino, Luis Fonsi, Kesha, Little Big Town, Pink and SZA at the ceremony. Miley Cyrus & Elton John will team up to perform an unnamed classic by Sir Elton & his longtime writing partner, Bernie Taupin. A few days later, John and Taupin will receive the Recording Academy President’s Merit Award during a tribute concert. Lamar, who is nominated for seven Grammys for work from his album “Damn.,” has a history with U2. He collaborated with the band on his song “XXX,” and a few months ago U2 returned the favor by including a spoken-word Lamar interlude on its song “Get Out of Your Own Way.”
The Grammy Awards will be televised on CBS on Jan. 28.
