Adele, Chris Brown Added To Grammy Group
February 3, 2009


Chris Brown

This Sunday's Grammy Awards ceremony keeps getting more packed with talent, as Adele, Chris Brown, Sugarland, and a special performance with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift are the next round of names announced for the 51st Annual event. It was also announced that Estelle and Kanye West will perform together (presumably to do their hit "American Boy"), and there will be a Four Tops tribute featuring original member Abdul "Duke" Fakir with Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo. Sheryl Crow, talk show host Craig Ferguson, Al Green, actor Jay Mohr, Queen Latifah and T-Pain are the latest presenters to be added to the list.

This fills out a roster of performers that already includes Kid Rock, Rihanna, U2, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Coldplay, Jennifer Hudson, Jonas Brothers, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney (with special guest drummer Dave Grohl), Katy Perry, Radiohead, T.I. and Justin Timberlake, and Carrie Underwood.

As previously reported, the 51st Annual Grammy Awards will be held February 8 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will be broadcast live on CBS from 8 to 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). There also will be plenty of other technology options for those who won't be sitting in front of the TV: the show will be supported on radio via Westwood One worldwide and covered online at grammy.com and CBS.com, on Twitter at "theGRAMMYs," on Facebook at "The Recording Academy," on YouTube at "51stGRAMMYs," and on Last.fm at "the51stgrammys."
