It turns out the rumors are true! Beyoncé and Jay Z have both been booked to perform at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. But it isn’t 100% clear whether or not they’ll grace the stage together.
According to US Weekly reports:
Perhaps they’re taking requests?! As long rumored — and wished-for! — both Beyonce and husband Jay Z will indeed perform at the 2014 Grammys next Sunday, Jan. 26. CBS quietly confirmed the highest-of-high-profile performers in a Sunday, Jan. 19 commercial which listed both Beyonce, 32, and Jay Z, 44, among the list of performers. Making it all the more momentous? A source confirms exclusively to Us that the spouses of nearly six years will perform together!
No word yet on which tracks Blue Ivy’s mom and dad might perform. Their latest collaboration — which follows such classics as “03 Bonnie and Clyde” and “Crazy in Love” — is “Drunk in Love,” a lead single off Beyonce’s self-titled smash fifth album, in which Jay Z guest-raps.
Other scheduled Grammys performers set to follow in their wake include Taylor Swift, Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Daft Punk, Paul McCartney, Katy Perry and Kendrick Lamar.
It has yet to be confirmed, however, if the couple of nearly six years (who share daughter Blue Ivy, 2) will perform together. Their latest collaboration — which follows such classics as “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Crazy in Love” — is “Drunk in Love,” a lead single off Beyonce’s self-titled smash fifth album, in which Jay Z guest-raps romantically.
One more pop music royal expected at the Grammys? Madonna, who will reportedly provide guest vocals during one segment at next Sunday’s awards fest as well — although her name has not yet officially been posted among the night’s performers.
Although Madonna and Beyonce are not expected to share the stage, the fellow divas are mutual fans. During a screening of her surprise Beyonce visual album, the younger singer explained: “I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire.”
Does this make you want to watch the Grammy’s even more? What do you think they’ll perform if they do hit the stage together?
