Grammys 2015: Katy Perry, Beck, Juanes, Mary J. Blige & Brandy Clark Join Performers Lineup
Katy Perry may just be coming off one of the biggest performances of her career at Super Bowl XLIX, but the "Dark Horse" singer isn't done just yet. Today (Feb. 4), the Grammys announced that she will be joining the likes of Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, Madonna and more at this year's ceremony.
Perry is going to tone it down a bit from her large scale Super Bowl set, which included a giant lion, dancing sharks and fireworks. Billboard reports that she's prepping a lowkey performance of her PRISM track "By The Grace of God," which details her suicidal thoughts after her marriage to Russell Brand fell apart.
Perry won't just be on hand to perform at the Grammys, she's also nominated for Best Pop Group/Duo Performance ("Dark Horse") and Best Pop Vocal Album (PRISM).
According to the Grammys' official website, Perry isn't the only new performer. Beck, Latin singer Juanes, Mary J. Blige and country singer (and Best New Artist nominee) Brandy Clark also join the lineup.
Beck will be joined by Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for his performance, which comes on a big night for the alt-rocker. Beck is nominated for Album of the Year (Morning Phase), Best Rock Performance ("Blue Moon"), Best Rock Song ("Blue Moon") and Best Rock Album (Morning Phase). These four nominations give Beck his biggest Grammys night in his 20-year career.
Similarly, Juanes and Brandy Clark are also nominated for Grammys, both up for two awards. Mary J. Blige is nominated for Best Dance Recording for her Disclosure collaboration "F For You."
