January 14, 2014


Taylor Swift
The latest performers for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards have been revealed, and the show now boasts Taylor Swift, John Legend, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kacey Musgraves, and Keith Urban, not to mention Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr — who as members of The Beatles will receive the 2014 Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. Oddly enough, this will be Ringo Starr's very first time performing on the Grammy Awards. It's also a first for Bareilles, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Musgraves. Other special performances include Sara Bareilles together with 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year, Carole King.

They join the list of previously announced performers including Daft Punk with Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams and  Stevie Wonder; Kendrick Lamar joined by Imagine Dragons; Lorde; Metallica with Cultural Ambassador to China Lang Lang; Katy Perry; P!nk and Nate Ruess; Robin Thicke with Chicago; and more. The event will take place live on Sunday, January 26 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The telecast also will be supported on radio via WestwoodOne, and covered online at GRAMMY.com and CBS.com. Additional performers, presenters and special segments will be announced shortly.

In other Grammy news, Pepsi is supporting the Grammy Best New Artist category with a series of video interviews with all five nominees: James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kacey Musgraves and Ed Sheeran. In the video clips, which will be available on www.PepsiPulse.com and www.Grammy.com/BestNewArtist, the five nominees share a look into their daily lives, creative processes and career evolution, according to Billboard.com. The program will be embedded in three custom editorial stations through Pepsi's sponsorship of iTunes Radio, including a Best New Artist station (starting January 15) and a Grammy Winner Station (on January 27).
